  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan.
  2. Whisk melted butter with 1 cup sugar in a large mixing bowl; stir cocoa, red food coloring, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, vinegar, and salt into butter mixture one at a time, mixing well after each addition to avoid lumps. Stir 2 eggs into mixture until thoroughly combined.
  3. Stir flour into cocoa mixture just until combined; set aside 1/4 cup batter. Pour remaining batter into the prepared baking dish.
  4. Beat cream cheese in a bowl using an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy; beat 1/4 cup sugar, 1 egg, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract into cream cheese until very well blended and only small lumps remain, 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Spoon cream cheese mixture in dollops over the batter in pan; gently smooth tops of dollops even with batter using a knife or offset spatula. Do not overmix. Drizzle reserved 1/4 cup of batter over the dollops of cream cheese mixture. Drag a knife or skewer through the batter and cream cheese mixture to create swirls.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the pan comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into bars; store covered in refrigerator.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • The fluffier and smooth you can get the cheesecake mixture, the easier it will be to spread. I think this is best served the next day!

How anyone could give this recipe less then 5 stars is a shock to me. I made this recipe for the people I work with and they went over so well I can't wait to make them again. Yes, the cream che...

Am I the only one that notices the directions don't actually match the ingredient measurements.

I followed the recipe exactly except I didn't have food colouring. My husband said they were good. I think doubling the recipe would be good to make them thicker. I am going to try it next time

It was a hit with all my friends but i wasn't a big fan. i've already been asked to make them again.

This was sooooo good. It's perfect when you want something a little different but familiar enough for everyone to try.

Great recipe! Four stars because it was more of a cake than brownie, but can out super moist and delicious. Just make sure not to over mix the cream cheese.
