So I decided for Valentine’s Day I would make some treats for my coworkers. I got a recipe for Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies from Sweet Pea Kitchen. I had seen some other pins of people using a heart cookie cutter for brownies and cookies so I decided to try it out with this recipe.
Here are the ingredients:
1/2 cup butter
2-oz dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp red food coloring
2/3 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
8-oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
You start by adding the 1/2 cup butter and 2-oz dark chocolate to a microwave-safe bowl and heating it until it melts slightly. The you mix together the 1 cup sugar, 2 large eggs, 1 tsp vanilla extract and 1 1/2 tsp red food coloring.
For the cheesecake mixture you blend together the 8-oz cream cheese, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 egg and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. Blend it with a blender so it comes out smooth. After it’s mixed spread 8 dollops over the batter and swirl with a knife.
My sister also made some pretzel bites and red velvet cheesecake cookies. The pretzel bites were so simple to make. Square mini pretzels, Hersey hugs kisses and red and pink M&M’s. Place a kiss on each pretzel and bake at 200 for 5 minutes (to warm up) then place an M&M on each kiss and that’s it! So easy and delicious snacks.
