"Red Fever" (Red Velvet) Swirl Brownies

Recently I saw this recipe from Sunny Anderson on the Cooking Channel & thought it looked so good.  After reading the reviews, I adapted the recipe slightly.  Since our sons were coming over to watch the second game in the World Series, I thought this brownie would be the perfect "Red Fever" treat.  These are a very fudgy brownie & keep well in the fridge.  No matter which team you are rooting for, these will be a hit!!

Red Velvet Brownie Layer     
1stick unsalted butter
1 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla
1/4 c. cocoa powder
pinch salt
1 T. red food coloring
1 t. vinegar
2 eggs
3/4 c. flour

Cream Cheese Layer
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/3 c. sugar
1 egg
1/2 t. vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Butter an 8x8" pan.

Brownie layer:  In a medium saucepan , melt the butter.  Remove from the heat & add the sugar, vanilla, cocoa powder, salt & food coloring & vinegar, in that order, mixing between additions. Whisk the eggs in a small bowl and stir it into the cocoa mix.   Fold in the flour until lightly combined.  Pour the batter into the prepared pan, saving 1/4 cup of the batter for the top.

Cream cheese layer:  Blend together the cream cheese, sugar, egg & vanilla in a medium bowl.  Gently spread the cream cheese layer on top of the brownie batter in the pan.

Dollop the remaining brownie batter over the cream cheese layer.  Using a skewer or the tip of a knife, drag the tip through the cream cheese mixture to create a swirl pattern.  Bake the brownies for 30 minutes.  Remove to a cooling rack & allow to cool completely before cutting.

Store the remainder in the fridge.
