After my Red velvet cupcakes with vanilla buttercream, l simply fell in love with the intense red food colouring and l really had to use it again in another dessert. I had brownies on my to-do list for quite some time, until l decided that the wait had to be over. So these Red velvet cheesecake swirl brownies had to be the dream come true.

And what a better choice, everybody loves them. Hard to say no to chocolate or anything that’s got chocolate in it, right? The cream cheese brings richness and a splash of white colour, making them even more appealing to one’s tastebuds.

You can definitely use a lot more cream cheese for extra richness and spash of colour, and you can safely impress everyone on several ocassions. They are great for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, parties, etc But most importantly, they are great for whenever you fancy something yummy and chocolaty.

I think l’m going a bit too excited about baking these days, it must be the festive season, but we are allowed to overindulge in December, let the guilt for the New Year when cutting down on sweets and fatty foods seems to be a universal resolution. Yup, January is a long month.

Luckily February brings Valentine’s Day, when we have yet another reason to go back to the guilty pleasure called chocolate. Not that we need any reason to bake. If you are looking for a ‘normal’ brownies recipe, why not have a look at my Vegan chocolate brownie cake with walnuts or Indulgent chocolate brownies with walnuts, they are scrumptious.

Safe to say I’ll be baking more of these pretty little things very soon, there is no way I will wait for a special occasion. After all, my sweet tooth craves yumminess every single day. How bad is that!
