Marbled Red Velvet Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting

Ingredients for Marbled Red Velvet Brownies

1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon red food coloring
1 teaspoon vinegar
2 eggs
3/4 cup flour
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8 x 8 baking pan.
Melt butter (1 minute in the microwave).
In mixer bowl, combine melted butter and sugar.
Add in vanilla, cocoa powder, and sea salt. Continue mixing.
Next add in food coloring (red makes it “traditional” red velvet. I used magenta and it still turned out somewhat red) vinegar, eggs, and flour.
Continue mixing for 3-5 minutes until all ingredients are incorporated and the consistency is smooth. Reserve 1/4 cup of the brownie mixture.
Pour remaining mixture into greased baking pan. In a mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese (it will be more lumpy if you don’t let it soften a bit) sugar, egg, and vanilla extract.
Beat until smooth.
Pour cream cheese mixture over brownies and smooth it out.
Take your reserved brownie mixture and drop spoonfuls over the top of the brownies. Then, using a toothpick or a skewer, make swirls with the brownie mixture and cream cheese.
Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.
