Happy Valentine’s Day! We’ve been busy the last half of 2018 buying, renovating a charming house in the city so apologizes for not posting! We have a backlog of some fun things to share and hopefully have time to catch up on those.
Need a fun, and quick recipe for your Valentine’s Day? How about Red Velvet Cream Cheese Marble Brownies! Adopted from the Food Network’s recipe: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/sunny-anderson/red-velvet-swirl-brownies-recipe-1922317
Line a 8in x 8 in baking pan with parchment paper (easy cleanup!)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small saucepan melt the 1 stick of butter then remove from heat, add to bowl. Between each added ingredient lightly mix. Add sugar, vanilla, cocoa powder, salt, red food coloring, vinegar. Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl then add to the mixture. Slowing add the flour folding in after each 1/4 cup. Once combined add the mixture to the prepared pan reserving 1/4 cup for the top!
In a separate bowl (stand mixer) combine the cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla. Once mixed spread on top of the batter mixture in pan covering all sides. Then take the reserved 1/4 cup brownie mixture and dollop around the top. Take a butter knife or skewer and swirl the mixture together creating a marble look.
Put the pan in the oven and bake for 30 minutes! Once cooked remove and let cool before cutting.
