These brownies are addictive.  So addictive.  And, I must share the recipe for this with ya’ll.  
See, I came up with these by combining a couple of recipes already here on the Mrs – my Red Velvet Cheesecake & my Fudge Ripple Cake, and then putting a brownie spin on it.  Did you get all that?

They are yummy & gooey – everything that a brownie should be. But then, there is the twist of the red velvet & the added element of the cheesecake topping.  Decadent doesn’t even seem like a strong enough word to describe it.  Out of this world good!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes
Servings 1 9x13 pan of brownies


  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1.5 cups white sugar
  • 1.5 cups brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs room temperature
  • 2 oz red food coloring
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract divided
  • 2.5 cups self rising flour or all purpose with 2 tsp baking powder & 1/2 tsp salt added
  • 6 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 8 oz package cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 large egg


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl using an electric mixer or stand mixer, beat together the 1 cup of butter & both white and brown sugars. Beat in the eggs one at a time until smooth. Stir in the food coloring & half the vanilla extract. Gently fold in the flour & cocoa, being careful not to over mix. I can’t stress that enough – don’t over mix! The batter will be very thick.
  • Spray a 9×13 inch baker with non-stick cooking spray or Baker’s Secret. Pour in the brownie batter, scraping the sides of the bowl to get it all out.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and 2 tablespoons of butter until smooth. Mix in the flour, vanilla, sweetened condensed milk, & the egg until well combined. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the brownie batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
