Step 1: Ingredients/Tools
Red Velvet Brownie:
- 3/4 cup of flour (96g)
- 1 cup of granulated sugar (225g)
- 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder (25g)
- 1/8 tsp of salt (less then 1g)
- 1 stick or 8 tablespoons of unsalted butter (113g)
- 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract (2. mL)
- 1 Tbs. of red food coloring - about (15mL) may need more
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 tsp. distilled white vinegar
- 1 package of softened cream cheese, 8oz or 226g
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract (2.5mL)
- 1 large egg yolk
- 3 Tbs. of white granulated sugar (38g)
- muffin pan
- hand mixer or stand mixer
- kitchen spray
- plastic bag or piping bag
Step 2: Whisk Dry Ingredients
First let's whisk together our dry ingredients, so our flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, salt, and sugar.
Step 3: Melt That Butter
Next let's melt our butter in the microwave and add it to the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon.
Step 4: Food Coloring and Vinegar
Now let's add in our food coloring and then stir, then add in the vinegar. You may need to add more food coloring later on, but start with about a tablespoon.
Step 5: Eggs and Mix
Next we beat our eggs and those and our vanilla extract into the mix. Using the wooden spoon let's combine all the ingredients together, adding more food coloring at this point as necessary.
Step 6: Cheesecake Filling
Now we will make our cheesecake filling. In a large bowl add our softened room temp cream cheese, our sugar, and cream those together. Next we add our vanilla extract and our egg yolk, mix, scraping the sides as necessary.
Step 7: Bag It
Next we will place or cheesecake filling into a plastic bag or piping bag, it helps to cover a glass with the bag, it will keep the opening of the bag wide enough for you. Once done, twist the bag. Easy as that, simple piping bag, just snip off the corner with scissors when ready to use it.
Step 8: Fill It Up!
Now we take our brownie batter and fill up our muffin pan. I sprayed the pan first with kitchen spray. Add some batter, then pipe in some cream cheese, then add some more batter on top. Then use a toothpick and twirl it around mixing it. Or just leave it like a sandwich. Next bake at 350 F or 176 C for 10 to 12 minutes until when you poke it in the center a toothpick comes out clean.
Step 9: Cool It
Now once done, let your brownie bites cool for 5 minutes in the pan before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy! :)
