Pink Velvet Cheesecake Swirl Brownies
Updated April 5, 2018
box (15.25 oz) Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ Cake Mix
teaspoon chocolate extract
tablespoons milk or water, plus 2 more tablespoons
teaspoon Betty Crocker™ gel food color Neon Pink
block (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
teaspoon vanilla extract
Gather your ingredients, and preheat oven to 325°F.
Line a 9x13-inch pan with non-stick tin foil or with parchment paper and spray with baking spray. Combine cake mix, melted butter, egg, chocolate extract, 2 tablespoons milk and pink food coloring in a mixing bowl. Stir until combined.
Reserve 1/2 cup of batter, then pour the rest into prepared pan.
Spread batter in a thin layer in bottom of pan. Stir the remaining 2 tablespoons milk into reserved batter, thinning it out.
Stir together cream cheese and sugar (or pulse in a food processor). Add egg and vanilla extract and stir until smooth. Pour cheesecake filling over the brownie batter.
Drizzle the reserved pink batter over cheesecake, then swirl using a fork or knife.
Bake uncovered for 18 minutes. Remove and cover pan with tin foil. Return to oven for 6-8 more minutes. The center will still jiggle slightly and will firm up as it cools.
Cool at room temperature for about an hour, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
When ready to serve, cut into 24 squares. Store any extras in refrigerator.
