Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I bring you red velvet cheesecake swirl brownies from Sally’s Baking Addiction! Most people know that red velvet is delicious, but a lot of people don’t know what red velvet actually is. Red velvet is a mixture of chocolate and vanilla flavors – it includes both vanilla extract and cocoa powder, but the amount of cocoa powder is significantly less than you would use for chocolate cake/brownies. Traditionally, red velvet cake is topped with a cream cheese frosting. This recipe puts an awesome twist on that by incorporating the cream cheese in the form of a cheesecake swirl. These brownies are the perfect Valentine’s Day treat because they look so beautiful with the vibrant red and white(-ish yellow) swirls, and they’re also different from your average cookie or brownie.
