These red velvet cheesecake brownies by kawaiisweetworld on YouTube is an easy recipe to make for a Valentine’s Day treat. They can be a nice dessert for all year round if you love cheesecake and brownies. The red swirl on top is festive and I love how it’s simple to make. It’s a great idea to make these instead of regular brownies. I love how the brownies will still be a chooclatey taste because the red comes from the food coloring.



  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp red gel food coloring, or 1 T liquid
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup flour

Cheesecake Layer:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract


First, preheat the oven to 350F and grease an 8″ x 8″ baking pan, then line with parchment paper. Mix together sugar, vanilla, cocoa, salt, and butter in a large bowl. Stir in the food coloring and whisk the eggs while mixing after each addition. Add in the flour and stir. Reserve about 1/3 – 1/4 cup of brownie batter to swirl on top.

Next, once the brownies have baked in the oven for 30 minutes, let it cool for about 15-20 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a cutting board. Use a cookie cutter to cut out heart shaped brownies or cut in squares.

Overall, this is a perfect way to make a homemade treat for your special someone. My boyfriend loves brownies, and I am planning on making this for him because it’s so appropriate for the occasion. Plus, I can tweak it however I like because he’s not a big cheesecake fan, so I might do a strawberry icing on top. I can’t wait to make these because they look so moist and I would add chocolate chips.
