Directions
Watch how to make this recipe

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Butter an 8 by 8-inch baking pan, and set aside.

Brownie layer: In a saucepan on medium heat melt the butter. Remove the butter to a large bowl and add the sugar, vanilla, cocoa powder, salt, food coloring, and vinegar, in that order, mixing between additions. Whisk the eggs in a small bowl and stir it into the cocoa mix. Fold in the flour until lightly combined. Stir in the walnuts and pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, saving 1/4 cup of the batter for the top.

Cream cheese layer: Blend together the cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Gently spread the cream cheese layer on top of the brownie batter in the pan. Dollop the remaining brownie batter over the cream cheese layer. Using a skewer or the tip of a knife, drag the tip through the cream cheese mixture to create a swirl pattern. Bake the brownies for 30 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely before cutting.

They weren't bad, however, I think they are the least appealing brownies I've ever had.  The recipe results in a very small brownie, in height. and they simply lacked flavor.  I rated them two stars since they look great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is my go to red velvet cream cheese recipe.  I use it for all my get together so.  I'm not sure why other people found it hard to use.  It has a deep mocha taste and the cream cheese compliments it perfectly. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is one of the most embarrassing recipes I have ever made. It tasted fine, but there is NO way to create the swirl. The red mixture is way too thick and created huge globs on top, rather than spreading nicely. You'd be better off using 100% of the red velvet mixture on the bottom and simply covering it with the cream cheese mixture. Don't do the swirl!  item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a fantastic brownie recipe. I have been making it for years and I have passed it on to many other people. I am making the brownies today to take to a friend of mine and to my mother. item not reviewed by moderator and published
They look good, but a big disappointment when you bite into them. Me and my husband thought they were very bland, even my toddler spit it out. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made them for January 1, 2014 to celebrate the New Year and my nephew's birthday the following day. Everyone enjoyed them and wanted to take some home. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made these exactly according to the recipe, with very good quality cocoa powder. While beautiful, they don't have alot of flavor and the texture was so mushy my 9 year old offered me the rest of his. Keeping them refrigerated helped the texture issue but they are still bland- I would not make these again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I saw this recipe on the original episode in 2010 and I have been making them every holiday since! Every one loves them. My father was diagnosed with Diabetes Summer 2012 and was so upset that he could not eat any of my brownies.. so I have actually been making a batch with a sugar substitute and they are just as good. I love this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummy! Easy to make and my family loves them, even my husband who doesn't really like cheesecakes. Definitely will be making these again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent recipe. Super tasty and easy to make. I did make some slight changes though... -cut sugar to 2/3c -only had 2 eggs on hand so used 1.5 in batter, and .5 in cream cheese mixture -used light cream cheese -no food coloring -baked for 35 min -served with fresh raspberry sauce to cut richness, and whip cream Turned out perfect. Will make again for sure. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love these brownies I have made this about 5 times and every time I make them I have to make 2 batches. My father eats one by his self. My family and friend can't get enough of them rich chocolate , soft and really have a wonderful taste. When I make them I can always expect a crowd. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Everyone who I have shared these brownies with has loved them, the cream cheese layer is delicous! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made these brownies at least 5 times and every single time they come out great. I follow the recipe exactly ..... the only thing different I have to do is bake them between 40 and 45 minutes. 30 minutes is never long enough. I have baked them in 2 different ovens and t still didn't make a difference. They are awesome! I serve them cold because I like them better that way...but you can do it either way. LOVE THEM!!! A must make! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed the recipe step by step. It turned out horrible. Tried it again and same result. It tasted extremely bitter. I added more sugar and even some chocolate syrup to help. No matter what, I could not get them to taste like they should. And I am an accomplished baker. Please steer clear of this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
LOVE this recipe! Doubled the recipe, baked in a 9 X 13 pan, and the group ate them all! Easy to prepare, pretty to look at, and super delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These just came out of the oven. They look and smell delicious! Mine cooked perfectly in 30 minutes, but I have a relatively new oven and I know the temperature is accurate. As to eggy-flavor I'll have to wait until we try, but the batter seemed to taste just fine. As to needing a levening agent for the brownie mix - I don't think it's needed. Just follow the directions and stir in each ingredient -- my brownie layer was plenty full-bodied. I added a bit of espresso powder to the brownie mix and left out the nuts this time because my family doesn't really enjoy them. Can't wait to try them tonight! UPDATE: These are delicious!!! Not too sweet. The family absolutely LOVED them and is requesting they become a regular. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I added 1/3 cup chocolate chips to the brownie layer before baking for extra sweetness. Turned out perfectly. The key is to make sure the ingredients for the cream cheese layer are at room temperature before baking. After baking, I let it cool completely, then put it in the fridge until serving. The texture and flavor were much more like a cheesecake than a brownie, which we preferred. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The taste was very good, however, after baking 20 mins and cooling for an hour, the brownie layer was so undercooked it was almost disgusting. I actually put them back in the over for another 40 mins. because I wanted so badly to eat them. Also, I thought there was more cream cheese than brownie. I will definitely try these again, doubling the brownie recipe and using a bigger pan with a longer cook time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not my favorite, but it had a good taste, just not an awesome taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sorry. They're lousy. I bake on a regular basis. These were tasteless. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these last night, followed the directions to a T (except the nuts. I too, don't understand the negative reviews. My ingredients were all room temp (just putting your cream cheese out for 1 hour isn't going to get it room temperature and I think the brownies came out quite well. I didn't have an 8x8 pan, so I just used a 9x9. Since the brownies were spread out a little bit more I dropped the baking to 20 minutes, but I feel as if they still over baked. The only thing I could complain about, is, I don't think the brownies were sweet enough. I'll make then again, but with increased sugar and less baking time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Okay made a recipe similar to this and here's my tips. CHEESCAKE TOPPING ..One, use a whole teaspoon of vanilla it won't hurt...It will increase the flavor.. As in awesomeR! Two, make sure you are using large eggs. Sounds crazy but I just learned recently that the size of the egg matters ( no pun intended Thirdly, I would add 1/3 cup sugar... As for when they are done, according to my recipe they say cook until no longer jiggly.. The brownie part of this recipe sounds alot better than the one I have! Ok I'm done now.

I like the idea of this recipe although I use a fair amount of Raspberry Liqueur instead of vanilla..it was tasty and loved the way it turned out...just need to make sure your cream cheese and eggs are room temp..love this one. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were good but took more than 30 minutes to bake. It was hard to tell that they weren't done, so I took them out. The center ones were underbaked, but I served only the ones around the sides. Next time I will increase baking time, but I still don't know how to tell if they are done.....I don't want them to be dry. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I was really impressed with these brownies. My 3.5 year old son helped me make them for Valentine's Day and we had a blast! I didn't know how they were going to turn out being that I had never made anything like these before, but they were rich and creamy and delicious! I will definitely make them again and may simply change the food coloring color to fit the occasion. Loved them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really liked these brownies - they were really delicious and moist. The red velvet brownie part of the recipe tasted amazing, and I liked the cheesecake swirl layer on top as well! However, like some of the other reviewers, my boyfriend (who claims to like cheesecake found the top of the brownie too eggy/cheesy... I told him "that's what cheesecake tastes like..." but he insisted it was different. That's the only reason for my four stars - otherwise I would have given it a 5! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sublime and simple. Made them with my 5 y.o. He loved helping and eating. Strong recommend. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are amazing! I got so many great compliments on how yummy they were. I didn't find the creamcheese eggy at all. Instead of using 8 ounces of cream cheese I used 1/2 cup (that's all I had and they turned out fantastic!! : item not reviewed by moderator and published
These brownies are wonderful. My husband's boss and coworkers ask for them every once in awhile by request. The trick to avoid that "eggy" texture is to make sure that your cream cheese and eggs are completely at room temperature. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were awesome, Sunny! So quick and easy. So moist and just right in texture. I don't understand why other reviews say the cream cheese layer was eggy...it was like a cheesecake puree. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent! So easy, and they were perfectly done in the time allotted. I also omitted the nuts due to a guest allergy. I cannot understand the negative reviews here unless those people just don't know what cheesecake is. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Omg these are addicting thank you sunny! Only thing I did differently was omit the nuts and added a tsp off expresso powder to red velvet part item not reviewed by moderator and published
For the people that gave this recipe a low rating, they must of done something wrong! To make them more "fudgy" I only used 1/2 tsp of vinegar, and I added another 1/4 cup of sugar to brownie mix. I made them for a Christmas party last night! I was one of the few people without leftovers to bring home at the end of the night. I got a lot of compliments! The texture was perfect, just like a brownie and the cheescake layer was heavenly. Putting them in the refrigerator is the trick to making these great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yum!!! I made these for a dinner party that I was attending. They were a huge hit. The only thing that I did differently was to frost the browines with a milk chocolate frosting. People are still talking about them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Maybe the best brownies I've ever put in my mouth. I've taken them to a couple of tailgates and everyone who tried one loved it item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was doubtful about making these brownies and i completely regret my decision to go ahead and try them even after reading the negative reviews. The brownie part was nice and moist and very delicious, unfortunately the cheese cake part tasted terrible. I now understand why people say that the cheese cake tasted more like egg beat than cheese cake. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These brownies are everything I expected them to be: soft, moist, dense (somehow fudgy and cakey at the same time, and DELICIOUS. They taste just like red velvet cake but have a great brownie texture. I usually don't review a recipe unless I've followed it exactly, but in this case I wanted to add a rave to the mixed reviews because the negative reviews made me think twice about trying the recipe. Besides, I made only one change: I omitted the walnuts; I will try these with nuts in the future but today I wanted them smooth. I don't think it's weird that the butter is melted or that there's no leavening in the recipe...this is consistent with most of the other brownie recipes I've tried. And mine were done in exactly 30 minutes. Anyway, just wanted to say that this recipe is AMAZING! So good, and so quick and easy to make. Even my boyfriend, who normally doesn't want red velvet anything, praised their flavor and appearance and tried to take my brownie after he ate his. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am an avid baker, I've made my own cakes, pastries, etc from scratch and have even perfected my grandmother's recipes and these brownies were not up to scratch. I thought it was weird that there was no rising agent (as i've made brownies before and they usually call for some. The came out quite thin and dense. The cream cheese part was good, but the "brownie" part was disappointing. It's a shame because it tasted good at the raw stage. item not reviewed by moderator and published

These brownies are so easy and delicious. For Christmas time I doubled the recipe and put half red food coloring and half green then swirled it all together. Now for St. Patty's I'm doing all just green. This is definitely one of my fav brownie recipies. item not reviewed by moderator and published
OMG this is an awesome recipe. i was gonna make it for my husband for valentines and decided to try it ahead of time. they turned out so good that i had to give them to him early. i will definately make these again. these are incredibly moist the the cream cheese is the "frosting" swirled right in. awesome. wow. ummy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read all the mixed reviews, but I still wanted to make these since I had everything in the house. They were OK. I would not make them again. The brownie was definitely more "cake like". However, I did not taste the vinegar like many of the other reviewers. Cream cheese was a little "egg bake"-ish, but still good. I also did Not have to bake them any longer like some people did(I used a metal pan. If you want a light chocolate tasting, cake-like brownie, this one is for you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
i made then and sared and they were a hit very goo dont know what anyone els did in making them but they trun out very good for me item not reviewed by moderator and published
THESE BROWNIES ARE AWFUL!!! The red velvet "brownie" was more like a tough cake, and the the cream cheese layer was more like an egg bake. We followed every single direction perfectly and these were very dissapointing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't like these brownies. I found the vinigar taste unpleasent. Maybe a little lemon zest in the cream cheese layer would mask the vinager. I thought I would like them because they are not too chocolate but they are just bland with that odd vinagar taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am a chocolate lover and I found these to be lacking in chocolate flavor and a bit bland. However, the texture was nice and for someone who is not a huge chocolate person, these would be a good option. My oven cooks fast, so I only cooked for 25 min and then took it out and put aluminum foil over it for the last 5 min and they came out very moist and great texture. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these last night for my husbands Christmas party. I have NEVER sent a dessert out of my door with a piece missing out of it....but my daughter was absolutely dying to try these. She is mentally challenged, and used a word to describe these I have never heard her say before....so they really must be ....."INCREDIBLE!" item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great! Made brownies with my granddaughter. Next time, we plan to double the red velvet layer only. They are delicious, fantastic and EASY. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good recipe. I made these for Thanksgiving this year, and my family would not even wait until Thanksgiving Day...GONE!! They were delicious and we all kept sneaking in them through the night! Great twist to red velvet cake. Also a GLASS DISH works better and a few extra minutes of cook time (5 covered. item not reviewed by moderator and published
MickTripp, ur right about the center of the brownies. I did wat u said and it worked!! I made 3 batches of them and the first batch was still a little gooey. But the second and third were amazing. I dont want to be giving advice to a pro chef but if two people had the same problem, then i really think u should add what MickTripp said cause that worked excellent. Anyway, the only reason i gave this 4 stars is because i think Sunny should have added that to the recipe. Over all, great recipe and i will definently make a second review on how my family likes them. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I too read the reviews before making these brownies, and I found that they were not done at the end of the cooking time. HERE'S THE SECRET TO COOKING THE MIDDLE OF THE BROWNIE...I don't know why this works but at the end of the 30 minutes the middle of my brownies were still too gooey so I covered the pan with aluminum foil and cooked them for an additional 5-6 more minutes. When I removed the foil...Wellah! The center was done and the brownies were perfect! (Not too cakey and not too gooey These brownies are delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I don't like cake, I don't like cupcakes, and I have NEVER had red velvet anything. I could take or leave brownies. I watched Sunny make these brownies and I knew I had to try them.

If I ever make any other brownies they will include this cream cheese mixture. I will make these again and again. Moist and delish! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Made a double batch of these brownies for my friend's (who loves red velvet 16th birthday and a bake sale for my class at school. I didn't have any nuts it the house so I skipped them. These brownies turned out phenomenal. They were so moist and the cream cheese swirl was like cheesecake!

I had to let it cook about 10 extra minutes but still had an odd texture and off taste. I love red velvet cake but this was nothing like it. Just a doctored brownie recipe off the cream cheese package. item not reviewed by moderator and published
LOVED IT!!! I did have to cook it about 7 minutes longer than the recipe calls for and I baked it in a glass dish. I added a little more sugar than it asked for after reading some of the other reviews. It's a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have make this recipe twice and am about to make it again for valentines day. i found that baking in a 9x8 inch pan makes it thinner and the cream cheese layer really blends well throughout the whole brownie keeping the red velvet together. there suppose to be moist like cheesecake. not so much a brownie texture but a cheesecake texture. cooking it extra just dries it out. the reason its so moist is the oils from the cream cheese. dont think its under cooked. its suppose to be like that. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The brownies were delicious and easy to make...i added a little more food coloring to really make the color pop and a tad bit more sugar to make them a little sweeter the second time...yes we've made this over and over since this episode first aired lol great job sunny!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made a double batch to carry over to a Christmas gathering. I was surprised that it did not call for any kind of baking soda/powder. I was puzzled. We are a cream cheese family and thought they were very very good. The only thing they did not stay together to good. Will make em again and again....it's a keeper item not reviewed by moderator and published
I also found that the baking time is longer than stated in the recipe...with that, I can't figure out how to keep the cream cheese layer from turning brown with the extra bake time. Any ideas? item not reviewed by moderator and published
so delicious! I made these as part of my homemade holiday goody baskets. The color worked really good with the holiday theme! But the taste...I love red velvet cake but am not a huge fan of the cream cheese icing that goes with it, but the filling is much tastier than the usual icing. I am going to put this on one of my go to recipes lists. It was so easy and I always have the ingredients on hand. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These would be extremely good, BUT there is one critical flaw in this recipe. There is no mention of baking soda/powder and based on looking at other brownie recipes there absolutely needs to be! I was really surprised to find this major error in a recipe published by the Food Network. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I agree with the reviewers who said the cream cheese layer is great but the brownie layer is disappointing. I prefer my brownies a tad on the gooey side and this recipe gears itself towards a cakey brownie. And since others mentioned having to cook them longer than the recipe calls for, I cooked them 5 minutes longer and ended up regretting it. The cream cheese was the best part but still felt over-cooked. The brownie part lacks moisture and would probably benefit from the addition of a square or two of melted baking chocolate–or substituting it for the cocoa powder altogether–as well as the use of buttermilk rather than vinegar for more moisture. It also needs about 1/4-1/2 cup more of sugar. They weren't really sweet at all. I will definitely try these again but will make some alterations since I love red velvet and want these to be good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I know why everyone is getting cake instead of brownies. You never melt butter when baking. You cut in the room temp butter into a bowl of all the dry ingredients. Then you mix all the wet ingredients into a separate bowl and then mix them together. The mix should be thick and somewhat grainy. And don't bake longer than 30 mins. Do this and your brownies should come out perfectly chewy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are just sooo yummy ... my whole family loves them and keeps asking me to make it.. great recipe... any more red velvet ideas please let me know..... item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved the idea of this recipe but it fell a little short. The cream cheese layer is wonderful, but the red velvet part is more like a cakey brownie than a chewy red velvet cake (which is what I was looking for). I think there's too much cocoa powder. Next time I think I might try to find a chewy blondie recipe, add in a little cocoa powder/ food coloring and use this cream cheese swirl. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family Loved these brownies, even those who do not normally like red velvet cakes. Though they have a little more of a cake texture than a chewy brownie texture, they are still delicious!!! Thanks Sunny!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these exactly as the recipe calls for. The only thing I will change next go round is cook for an additional 5-10 minutes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love red velvet cake, so decided to try these. I am so glad I did! I've already made them 5 times and they never last more than 2 days in my house. I didn't add nuts because of an allergy and I didn't cook the cream cheese in with them, instead I made a cream cheese icing and put it on top after the brownies cooled. The brownies itself are amazing and I am sure they are delicious either way. Nice and moist brownies that I will make again and again. A lot easier than slaving over a cake and tastes the same, maybe even better. Try it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these brownies with the intention of taking them to Thanksgiving dinner at my mom's house. They never made it! The are absolutely delicious...moist and flavorful.

OMG these Brownie are soo Good. I didn't have All purpose flour so we used Self Rising. They came out just a little fluffy, but still delicious.

Next time will cook for extra 5 minutes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Did anyone use buttermilk for the cake? Also, does this call for regular sugar or confectioners sugar? Help! I want them to be perfect for Thanksgiving... item not reviewed by moderator and published

These were the best brownies I've ever tasted. For the record, I am not a fan of chocolate brownies- definitely near bottom of my dessert list. When I saw Sunny make these I thought it would be great being not too chocolatey(the cream cheese part was really what I was craving). OMG, they came out perfect! They were so beautiful w/the bright red and white swirl. Perfect color for xmas time! They were super moist and flavorful. Wicked easy to make- this will now be the only brownie recipe I make. Coworkers all enjoyed them also. Not only do they taste good, they look impressive. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read the reviews BEFORE trying them. They sounded different and I was baking my monthly treats for our local Ronald McDonald House. The underbaking comments worried me but not enough for me not to make them. I baked in metal 8X8 pans on Convection Bake for 30 minutes and they turned out beautifully! If you don't have a Convection Bake setting, bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Other than that, I thought they were good, looked different than your adverage cream cheese brownie, but the flavor didn't WOW me. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I want to give these another shot. Like many reviewers, my brownies still weren't cooked after 45 minutes. Good taste (even when its runny) so next time I will double the cooking time and see what I get. item not reviewed by moderator and published
i saw sunny make these brownies the other day and immediately wanted to try them myself. i was afraid of adding so much dye, but they came out perfectly red, and no one had bright red stained mouths. i used a metal nonstick pan and mine needed an extra 7 minutes of cooking time as well. i would also recommend refrigerating them before serving, because after i refrigerated the leftover brownies they were even better! these replicated a boxed version of red velvet cake (which is the only kind i've had) very well, and were the best cream cheese brownies i've ever had. this recipe is definitely a keeper. thanks sunny! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Then mix in one egg white at a time.....after baking, refrigerate for 3 hours minimum.
