Red Velvet Brownies

Need a quick holiday dessert that is so easy, anyone can make it? Try this out!

Makes 9 brownies


Wet mixture
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil (or real butter. I actually prefer the taste of butter more than oil, but the oil makes for a more vibrant color)
1 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp white distilled vinegar
2 tbsp red food coloring
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract

Dry mixture
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup cocoa powder

Cream Cheese mixture
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, whisk the canola oil, sugar, eggs, vinegar, red coloring, and vanilla extract together. Once well combined, add in the flour, salt, and cocoa powder and whisk until well combined. Set aside.

In another mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to cream the softened cream cheese, white sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. Mix it until smooth and creamy.  

In an 8x8 casserole dish, pour most of the brownie batter, but reserve about 1/4 cup. Layer the cream cheese mixture on top of the brownie batter. Pour the remaining brownie batter over the cream cheese mixture. Take a knife and make swirls by literally swirling the knife through the batter. I definitely get carried away during this part:-)

Bake uncovered for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool slightly before cutting. Enjoy!
