Oreo Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

I was inspired the recent food trend, Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies, so I decided to try it out for myself && they were so sinfully DELICIOUS! This is not for the faint of heart or the very health conscious. It is a sugary delight that'll make your taste buds jump for joy! You can trust me that it was good because after they were baked, they didn't last 24 hours with all my roommates around. <3 I love them && I really love to bake for them! I'm happiest when they like my baked goods or cooking! :) I hope you'll enjoy my take on Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies! Even if you dislike cheesecake (BECAUSE I REALLY REALLY REALLY DISLIKE CHEESECAKE), you're in for a treat because the brownie portion of this dessert balances out the cheese-flavor so that it doesn't even taste much like cheesecake. It's AMAZING.

Side note: BEFORE I HEAR ANY COMMENTS ABOUT FOOD COLORING, I didn't have any on hand. BUT it was still delicious and, in my option, still looks friggin' amazing. >;) PLUS, it's a pro, less artificial colors going into your body. :P

Oreo Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 30-35 minutes

1/2 cup of unsalted Butter, softened at room temp
3/4 cup of granulated Sugar
1/4 tsp of salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup of flour
3 Tbsp of chocolate milk powder (i.e. Nesquik or hot chocolate)
1 tsp of distilled white vinegar
1 tsp of vanilla extract

Red food coloring (optional)

Cream Cheese Filling:
8oz of Cream Cheese, softened at room temperature
1 Egg
3-1/2 Tbsp of Sugar
1 tsp of Vanilla Extract


Oreos, as many as your heart desires & crushed


1.) Grease an 8x8 or 8x10 baking dish with non-stick spray or oil. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.) Cream together the butter and sugar (a fork will do just fine), add eggs, and beat them all together. Add the chocolate powder and salt. Mix. Add optional food coloring until you get a definite RED color. (Baking makes the red appear less distinct so add more red if you want it really red!) Mix. Add vinegar. Mix. Add flour. Mix.
3.) Save 1/4 of the batter and pour batter into prepared pan.
4.) In another bowl, mix all of the ingredients for the cream cheese filling together until you don't see any lumps.
5.) Spread the cream cheese mixture all over the top of the batter in the prepared ban. Then, dollop the remaining 1/4 batter on top of the cream cheese mixture. Next, use a knife to swirl the batter and cream cheese mixture together (like a snake or S or figure 8 over and over again).
6.) Top with crushed Oreos.
6.) Bake for 30-35 minutes or until you insert of knife and it comes out clean! :)

Serve hot on top of vanilla ice cream or cool completely for that brownie texture!

SUCCESS!!! You've can now eat your beautiful artwork! Yay! This recipe is super easy and fun to make. It's a great and simple activity that you can do with kids or bonding with friends! Very versatile and easily to satisfy all tastebuds!
