Red Velvet Brownies

Ingredients for the brownies:
1/2 stick of unsalted butter
1 cup of granulated sugar
3/4 cup of flour
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla flavor
1 teaspoon distilled vinegar
1 tablespoon red food coloring
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Ingredients for the cream cheese filling:
1 pack philadelphia cream cheese (at room temperature)
4 tablespoons of icing/confectioner's sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg

Cream the butter and granulated sugar together, add the eggs and beat for about 2minutes.

Add the cocoa powder, vanilla and salt…mix thoroughly.

Add the food coloring and mix well and then add the vinegar. Add the flour last and mix just until the flour is well incorporated. Do not over mix.

Separate about 1/4th of the batter and set both aside.

For the cream cheese filling, mix all the ingredients together until smooth.

Pour the bigger brownie batter into a parchment paper-lined 8x8 pan and then pour the cream cheese mixture on top.

Now add the smaller portion of the batter…

Using a knife, smooth the brownie batter out.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the brownie comes out clean (about 30-40minutes). Allow to cool and then serve with ice-cream ;)
