Show Some Love!

These red velvet brownies are the right amount of sweet and slightly tangy from the cheesecake bottom. These brownies will win anyone over, and surprisingly these layered red velvet brownies take minimal effort to make. My favorite part is the cookies and cream cheesecake layer, paired with the light and fluffy red velvet cake layer.

Red Velvet Brownies Using Boxed Brownie Mix

So, I cut a corner when I make these brownies, and let me just say with the cookies and cream cheesecake layer, no one will no the base is a box brownie mix.

I am all about cutting corners here and there but still having that delicious dessert that leaves my family and guests reaching for more. And that is just what you get with these boxed brownie red velvet brownies.

The perfect colored red velvet with a swirl of cheesecake and chunks of Oreos throughout. If you have ever made red velvet homemade you are sure to know the coloring is something that takes practice.

Too much red it can look frightening, not enough it resembles a brown that isn’t appealing to the eye. So, when you use a boxed brownie mix as the base, you take out the stress and part of the work. Then you just focus on the cheesecake base and your good to go!

The cheesecake layer in this brownie mix is so easy to make. Just cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and cookies. This mix will give you the right amount of sweetness and tang as a good cheesecake should do.

This brownie recipe isn’t as dense as some brownies, the cheesecake layer really helps give them a refreshing twist which I love. My kids went crazy over these after I served them up, and let me say, I couldn’t help but reach for one more brownie.

What Does Red Velvet Taste Like

Red velvet is known for its stunning red presentation. Whether you serve a cake, brownie or cookie, it will lure in a crowd. Red velvet is a cake, brownie, or cookie base that is generally colored with food coloring to give it that deep red color.

Some people use extra vanilla or butter when making red velvet and others just add coloring to a basic chocolate base. Either way, red velvet is known for standing out in a crowd.

Why Does Red Velvet Taste Like Chocolate

Red velvet is generally a base of a chocolate cake, brownie or cookie mix. You use a mix of cocoa and food coloring to get your deep red. Sometimes even vinegar is splashed in to help the red coloring stand out in your base. That is why you taste chocolate, is because almost always you start with a chocolate base of a recipe.

Trust me you guys, these red velvet brownies will not disappoint. Give them a try and let me know how you like them!
