Red Velvet Cream Cheese Brownies

     Hi loves! If there's one thing about me is that i have a major sweet tooth! Especially at night when i'm in bed scrolling down pinterest (bad idea but i cant help it!). I also love whipping things up that are easy and less of a mess to clean up. Who else doesn't enjoy cleaning up? I know i don't enjoy it... not at all. I'm not the best at baking but when i do find easy recipes that almost anyone can make... i have to try it!

     While on pinterest i stumbled upon this red velvet cream cheese brownie recipe. First of all a red velvet brownie?? I couldn't help but drool over this amazing recipe plus it's super easy to make + the best part? it's a store bought cake mix recipe that's combined with other ingredients that you can already find in your own kitchen. So here it is... I decided to share with all of you my red velvet cream cheese brownies!

Are you ready?


For brownies: 

       1 box of extra moist red velvet cake mix
     ❤  ½ a cup of melted butter
       1 large egg  
       1 table spoon of water

For cream cheese frosting:

       8 ounces of cream cheese, softened 
       1 large egg
       ¼ cup of sugar
       ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Preheat over to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Use a 9x13 baking dish and place a long sheet of parchment paper over the baking dish so its easier to take out the brownies once cooled.

2. Add the cake mix in a bowl and slowly add the melted butter, egg and water while beating it together. Once the batter is thick is sticky... add batter evenly into the baking dish.

3.  For the cream cheese, beat together the cream cheese, egg, sugar and vanilla until everything turns into a smooth texture. Then slowly add the cream cheese frosting with a spoon by making a few dots on the batter.

4. Bake the brownies for 5 minutes and then remove from the oven and a run a knife through the dough to make swirls. Return the brownies to the oven and continue to bake for 20 minutes or until set.

5. Cool brownies completely before taking it out of the pan and cutting.
