Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies are the best dessert for your festive holiday party. They are the perfect blend of chocolate and cheesecake.

Christmas Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

Let me start by saying I love red velvet cake! It’s kind of funny how much I love it because I have never been a “cake person.” I prefer pie or cheesecake on my birthday instead of a traditional birthday cake except when it comes to red velvet cake. These Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies are the best of all worlds!

I found a recipe for red velvet cheesecake and I had to try it. It combines two of my favorites and I loved the flavor. I decided to take it one step further with this recipe and made red velvet cheesecake brownies! These brownies are festive and one batch will make 20 beautiful squares of amazingness.

This recipe will feed a crowd! It’s so good and has that delicious melt in your mouth texture. I drizzled chocolate on top to make it look festive and colorful.

Ingredients for Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

  • Milk chocolate chips: Melted and cooled for that brownie component.
  • Crushed Oreos: Which will be about 30 cookies of the regular single stuffed Oreos.
  • Butter: Melted to combine the Oreos for the bottom layer. Salted or unsalted will do.
  • Cream cheese: Softened for easy mixing.
  • Sour cream: Full fat, none of that low fat kind.
  • Sugar: Granulated not powdered.
  • Liquid red food coloring: Do not use the gel, it won’t work the same.
  • Vanilla: Extract or imitation vanilla extract will both work.
  • Eggs: Slightly beaten
  • Green and milk chocolate melted: This is what makes the brownies turn out so festive. The brownies are super red and the green and brown chocolate will cover just enough so you can see all the colors.

Directions for Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a 13×9 inch baking pan with foil. Lightly coat folk with cooking spray.
  3. Melt chocolate, stir and let cool for 5 -10 minutes.
  4. In medium bowl combine crushed cookies, stir in butter.
  5. Press crumb mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  6. In a bowl, beat cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, red food coloring, and vanilla with a mixer on medium low speed until smooth.
  7. Beat in melted chocolate.
  8. Gently stir in eggs. Spread over crust.
  9. Bake 25-30 minutes or until edges are puffed and center is set.
  10. Cover and chill 4-24 hours before serving.
  11. Melt the milk chocolate and green candy melts. Drizzle the green chocolate over the top lengthwise, then the milk chocolate over the top widthwise. It will give it that festive color!
  12. Allow chocolate to cool before slicing.

Melting Chocolate in the Microwave

Melting in the microwave is a faster way to melt chocolate or the candy melts. Chocolate can be difficult to melt because if it’s overheated, it can burn so you must watch it closely.

Only microwave for 30 seconds at a time using a microwave safe bowl. Stir after each 30 second interval. Once the chocolate is mostly melted with a few lumps, just keep stirring until it’s smooth. No need to microwave it longer because you risk the chance of burning it with too much heat.

To get a chocolate consistency that is easy to drizzle, add a tablespoon of coconut oil or vegetable oil while microwaving. It will make the chocolate smooth and a thinner consistency. A thinner chocolate is easier to drizzle.

Tips and Tricks for Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

  • Cream cheese needs to be softened. This recipe is almost impossible to mix with cold cream cheese, so that’s my main advice.
  • Line the baking pan with foil or parchment and spray. It makes these bars so easy to remove from the pan. It also makes cleanup a little easier too.
  • Easiest way to cut a brownie is with a plastic knife. Yes it works great and the crumb doesn’t get all over.
  • These brownies do need to be stored in the refrigerator. Because they are red velvet cheesecake brownies, they are perishable at room temperature. I just store mine in a container with a lid.
