Red Velvet Swirl Cheesecake Brownies
Red Velvet Cheesecake brownie. Yummy and pretty! I actually baked these for 33 mins, and they came out perfectly, they will firm up more upon refrigeration. Don't spread the cream cheese layer to the very edge (it will still taste fine but gets a little brown & ugly).
