Even the most dedicated of people have their weaknesses. One of mine is red velvet anything. I was dead set on making a Red Velvet King Cake for tomorrow, and I still might, but the idea got my taste buds craving and I wanted something a little less labor intensive.
I ran my 10K training (38 min) without a single pause today, did a very intense 40 minute yoga sesh and I skipped my Sunday cheat meal in favor of chicken crust pizza, so I figured why not treat myself, my babe and a couple friends to some yummy, chewy, baked, red deliciousness??
Fat Tuesday only comes around once a year and I’m not really about to feel guilty about 1 or 3 of these with all the work I’m doing. Like I will keep saying; life is about balance.
Let’s jump right into the recipe. I still have stuff to do before my shift at 5.
What You Need:
2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
2 cup sugar
1.5 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tablespoon red food coloring
2 c flour
2 blocks of cream cheese, room temp
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
What You Do:
Preheat oven to 350.
Spray a 9×13 cake pan with oil.
Just throw all the ingredients for the brownie into a large bowl and mix with a hand mixer.
Spread brownie mix into pan.
Mix all cheesecake ingredients in a bowl.
Drop in dollops over brownie batter and use a butter knife to swirl.
Bake 30 minutes.
Cool completely before cutting. I waited 2 hours.
You have to indulge yourself every once in awhile. This is a shareable batch, but if you have no friends or no control, just make a half recipe and call it a good day. They can also be frozen and thawed to enjoy at a later date.
I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!!
Much Love, Chelle❤️
