Red Velvet Cheesecake Swirl Brownies Are A Triple-Threat Of Deliciousness

For when you just can't decide which dessert to eat.

Sometimes, one dessert isn’t enough. It can just be too difficult to pick one delectable treat from a list of favorites. But what if you didn’t have to choose?

Finding recipes that combine multiple desserts into one irresistible confection isn’t as easy as it sounds. The combination of flavors and textures has to be perfectly balanced, resulting in a dessert that has the best of everything without being overwhelming. Lucky for you, we’ve found something that will check off all the boxes for those who love chocolate and cheesecake — Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies.

We’ll let that sink in for a moment and as you gaze upon its wonder:

These rich, chewy bites come from the creative mind and kitchen of Sally, the creator of Sally’s Baking Addiction. She found a version of this dessert from the Food Network and made a few adjustments in order to create something that tasted just right.

These Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies magically combine the tangy, slightly chocolate flavor of red velvet cake with the creamy sweetness of cheesecake, wrapping it all up into a fudgy, chewy brownie.

The ingredient list for these brownies includes the usual suspects, such as eggs, sugar, flour, butter, cocoa powder and vanilla extract. And while the recipe has multiple steps, as you have to make the brownie mixture before adding in the cheesecake layer, Sally writes that it only takes 20 minutes to throw it all together before putting it into the oven. In fact, the hardest part will likely be waiting for the brownies cool before you eat them!

If you want to make extra, Sally gives tips on how to make a double batch. After all, you may have extra guests for the holidays or want to put some brownies in the freezer to enjoy later.

These Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies do look perfect for a holiday table. But we won’t tell if you decide to keep it in your year-long baking rotation!
