Marbled Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies*

It’s January 20th, and I am bringing you a Valentine’s day dessert! That’s right, for once I am actually bringing you a holiday dessert before the holiday! Pigs are on fire and hell is flying…or, you know, whatever that saying is. We should all take a moment and enjoy this one time, never gonna happen ever again feeling.

Yesterday Jorge and I signed all the papers to rent a 2100 sq ft house. That’s like…almost 2 of our current apartment! This is going to be a BIG change for us since we have always been apartment/townhome type people. We are now going to have a yard to mow, room to do cartwheels down the hallways and the space to adopt like 50 more animals - totally just kidding…probably kidding…maybe…I mean…what’s a few more right?…

Since our offical move in date is February 17th, I know my current kitchen will have to be packed up a few days ahead of time….which is why I am here with my Vday dessert early. It’s not because I was planning ahead…or trying to be helpful. But I knew if I wanted to get to make these adorable Marbled Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies, that I have bookmarked since last year, I HAD to do it now or it wouldn’t happen.

I was nervous putting this recipe into the oven…I really winged it with the red velvet brownie batter. But I totally lucked out and it turned out delicious! Jorge was munching on all of the scraps leftover from the hearts and kept saying, “mmmm ::mumble mumble:: gooooodddd”. I’m not sure exactly what he was saying, but I know they were happy belly noises. :)

I can’t think of a more perfect dessert for your honey this Valentine’s day. Thank you so much to Lindsey of Our Share Of The Harvest for the inspiration!

A couple of quick tips:

1. I used the red heart cookie cutter in this set from Wilton for my hearts. They are not actually bite sized…and are more a 2-3 bites sized. These brownies are definitely sturdy enough for the bigger size…and I feel better saying I had one brownie, instead of, I had 3 brownies. :)

2. Use a heavy duty jelly roll pan! A thin pan will result in the burnt bottoms (hehe). I have this one…and while yes it is more expensive than the cheapo ones at Wal-Mar, it is so worth the money.

3. You are going to have scraps leftover from the hearts. You have two options… One, stand over the sink eating them. Two, come back and check here on Monday to see what tasty treat I whipped up with the remaining scraps! Update: What to do with the scraps!

4. Wouldn’t these be adorable on lollipop sticks? And with a Valentine stuck to them? You know like the kid’s Valentines? Someone please do it & send me photos so I can ogle all the adorableness!


Update: What to do with the leftover scraps!

Marbled Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

Yield: 16 hearts


Red Velvet Layer:
3 1/4 cups flour
2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 large eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
4 tablespoons milk, divided
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon red food coloring
2 teaspoons white vinegar

Cheesecake Layer:
2 8oz packages cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13 x 18 jelly roll pan with butter or spray with Baker's Joy.

In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, vegetable oil, 2 tablespoons milk, vanilla extract, red food coloring, and white vinegar.

Combine the dry and wet ingredients, until completely combined. The batter will be a really thick, almost moldable texture...but don't worry, that's what you want. Remove 3/4 cup of the batter and place it in a medium bowl. Whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons of milk (into the 3/4 cup of batter you just took out). Set aside the 3/4 cup batter.

Pour the remaining batter into the prepared jelly roll pan. Using a spatula, smooth out the batter to reach all the edges.

Now, in your stand mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until combined and there are no lumps. Pour the cream cheese mixture on top of the red velvet layer and smooth mixture till it reaches all the edges.

Drop spoonfuls of the remaining red velvet batter (that you mixed with milk) onto the top of the cheesecake layer. Drag the tip of a knife through the red velvet and the cheesecake layers to create swirls.

Bake for 30 minutes, rotating half way through, or just until the center is set and it no longer jiggles. Let cool completely on a wire rack before cutting. Use a medium sized heart cookie cutter to create the perfect Valentine's Day treat!



P.S. I am seriously considering sending out these to all of my dearest girlfriends this year. Do you want me to send you one too? You can have anybody but Justin, I already called all of those to wall paper my ceiling with.

    i love your styling on the first photo. fabulous. these are so cute.

    If someone wanted to make these and didn’t have a sturdy jelly roll pan I bet you could just double up your pans.

    I wish someone would make these for me!

    Yay for your move! So exciting!

    I’ll be that person eating the scraps over the sink (scrap calories don’t count. Duh.) But then I’ll make another batch for your next treat. I promise.

    When you combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix will the batter be like brownie mix or is it grainy?

    • Jessica replied: — January 22nd, 2012 @ 1:26 am

      I just got an email a couple hours ago from someone who made them…and discovered I made a typo in the recipe! I had the wrong amount of oil!! I just remade a batch to make sure that my notes were correct…and have updated the recipe above to the correct amount of vegetable oil.

      I am SO incredibly sorry. I hate that you wasted ingredients! If you don’t totally hate me, please try them again. I promise they are delicious now that I corrected the amount of oil :-(

  54. 54

    Ashley — January 22, 2012 @ 1:30 am

    Rachel — January 23, 2012 @ 9:28 am

    What kind of red food coloring did you use? I have the wilton pastes, which are more concentrated, so do you know how much of that you would use instead? I think these brownies are adorable, btw!

    • Jessica replied: — January 23rd, 2012 @ 10:58 am

      I have no idea how much you will need to use of the concentrated ones.

      But just play around with it! Add a little at a time till you get the color you want. You can even make them pink if you would prefer! ;-)

    Marsha — January 23, 2012 @ 10:39 am

    What if you don’t have a jelly roll pan? Any ideas?

    • Jessica replied: — January 23rd, 2012 @ 11:00 am

      Hmmm. That’s a tough one because you really want the jelly roll so they cook evenly.

      Maybe if you have a large metal cake pan? You can put them in that. Just make sure it’s a big pan like the 13×18 jelly roll pan I used or they will be too thick.

      If you don’t have anything metal, you could try using a 13×18 glass casserole dish. If you do this, drop the temperature down to 325, and cook them a little longer. You will have to watch them carefully!

      I hope this helps! Let me know what you end up doing and if it works out!

  62. 62

    Meagan — January 24, 2012 @ 12:32 am

    Can these be cooked in a smaller pan? I don’t have a 13 x 18 and not sure I’m ready to splurge yet!

    • Jessica replied: — January 24th, 2012 @ 10:35 am

      You can make it in a 9×11 if you can make 2/3rd of the recipe.

      Meaning instead of 3 eggs, 2 eggs. Instead of 1 cup of oil, 2/3rd cup oil.

      Good luck!!

    Could you make these with just a normal pan instead of a jelly roll one?

    • Jessica replied: — January 26th, 2012 @ 5:12 pm

      What do you mean by a normal pan?

      Whatever you use, it must have sides…and it needs to be a large pan. Not deep, but in width/length.

    What a great idea. I’m going to try to make a gluten free version of this brownie. Regarding the scraps…I sometimes take stale or left over muffins or cookies and mix them with cake mix, nuts, choc chips etc then top with a crumb or coconut topping to make crazy coffee cakes.

    • Jessica replied: — February 1st, 2012 @ 6:32 pm

      To be honest, I don’t have a lot of experience using the natural ones.

      But I have heard of people using beets. Or you could buy the icing coloring from Michael’s…then you would only need a few drops because it’s so concentrated!

    Jessica, I just made these today and…. Oh My GOSH! How cute!!!! Thank You so much for sharing this! I fixed these for my women’s only recipe get together I have once a month at my house. They will LOVE these! One thing for all to note is the one TBL spoon of red food coloring will turn your batch red. I noticed Jessica’s was more pink. Next time I may seperate out the 3/4th cup and then add food coloring for a more pink look for the marble topping. Again thank you Jessica! Keep the GREAT work up!!! :-D

    • Jessica replied: — February 6th, 2012 @ 1:19 pm

      So glad you liked them Mandy!! :-D

      Mine were also red, not pink. But they were not a really dark red…more like a vibrant cherry red!

      Make sure and stick them on a thick stick, like a popsicle stick because they are pretty heavy!

    I made these today and they turned out a bit oily/crumbly. Could this have been from baking them for too long? They taste delicious, they just don’t want to stay together. The batter was more similar to dough when I prepared it as well. Maybe I missed something?

    • Jessica replied: — February 7th, 2012 @ 10:54 pm

      That may have been from baking for too long. The batter will be similar too a dough, I described it kind of like a weird playdough. But I had no issues with it being crumbly!

      I’m sorry they didn’t hold together right, but I’m glad they at least still tasted good!

    Katie — February 8, 2012 @ 12:50 pm

    This might be an obvious question, but would a sil mat (or whatever those rubbery baking mats are) do the same trick as yor jelly roll pan?

    • Jessica replied: — February 8th, 2012 @ 12:54 pm

      Well SilPats are used for cookies so they won’t stick, like parchment paper.

      The reason you need to use a jelly roll pan is for the edges. If you put it in something without edges, the dough will fall out or flatten way too much.

      You could use an extra large glass (like a rectangle casserole dish) or metal baking pan instead.

      Hope this helps!

My marbling didn’t turn out quite as smooth as yours did (the lines were not as small), but how can you go wrong with cheesecake & brownies!?! If those kids don’t like ‘em, I’ll bring them home and eat them myself! (uh-oh….that could turn out badly).

    I did a variation on these with a half sheet pan and a boxed red velvet cake mix, they were a huge hit and I’m currently making another 4 batches, 2 for my friend to take to her daughter’s Valentine’s day party at school and 2 for a charity bake sale. The half sheet pan makes 2 dozen hearts with what looks to be the same cookie cutter that you have. I also upped the sugar in the cream cheese mixture for the kiddies.

      There is too much batter. But if you halve the recipe it should be ok in a 13×9!

    Hi!! Is this more cakey or chewy?
    How much should I reduce the baking time by if I’m halving the recipe, separating Into 9×9 pan and a smaller pan?

    • Jessica replied: — March 8th, 2012 @ 9:13 pm

      They are more chewy!

      And I do not know exactly a time considering the two dimensions of the smaller pans. I would say start with 13-15 minutes and watch from there. The edges will slightly brown and the center will no longer giggle when it’s done.

    I just made these and I had really high hopes until I came to rotating them halfway through the bake and the top was TOTALLY browned over. You can’t see the cheesecake layer or the red velvet colour. The marbling pattern is only just visible. I can only presume my oven was too hot, but I converted the temp to C and then reduced it by 20 degrees as I have a fan oven. Hopefully they still taste good, but they look horrible in the tin D: They were gonna be an anniversary bake for tomorrow; thank goodness I’ve got fail-safe brownie pops on the go too xD Sad times. One say I’ll try again with a much lower temp.

    I live in Dubai with my family & came across your recipe on Pinterest.
    I tried it out and it turned out perfect, just like in your picture. It’s an absolutely great recipe & I especially like the fact that it’s made the old-fashioned way, when so blogs out there always use ready made cake mix. Being a baking addict, I really enjoyed making it. Thank you.

    Definitely going to have to try this, maybe for an upcoming pre-Valentine’s wedding shower! I wonder if you could make some kind of “brownie pops” or brownie bon-bons with the leftovers? Cream cheese frosting, white chocolate coating, and some pretty red sprinkles…I might have to try it! Thanks for the great recipe.

    • Jessica replied: — January 18th, 2013 @ 2:34 pm

      I wish there was a good suggestion, but when it is a main component for the cheesecake flavor there is no dairy free sub.

    I’m so excited to make these! My daughters love red velvet cake!! I may need to send all my “college kids” a special valentines treat! I also love the way you and your husband spend Valentines day! My jelly roll pan is 11×15 do you think I need to adjust the recipe in anyway or just cook a little longer?

    • Jessica replied: — January 23rd, 2013 @ 8:54 pm

      Well, it depends on how deep it is. If your pan is really deep, then yes you could do it and cook a little longer. However if it’s a 11×15 baking sheet, it might be to much batter and would cook over the edges.

    • Jessica replied: — January 23rd, 2013 @ 8:51 pm

      I used the liquid kind, but the gel would work just as well too!

    • Jessica replied: — January 27th, 2013 @ 7:55 pm

      A 180. The side that was farthest away from the window/door, should now be closest to the window/door of the oven. Hope you enjoy them!

    Sheryl — February 9, 2013 @ 1:47 pm

    Though looking good, I found there were problems.
    First, the dough was so thick, I was rolling the dough out with a rolling pin. Second, the brownies didn’t rise very much.
    Third, they tasted too oily, and bland.
    The only saving factor was the creamcheese topping.

    Was there to more milk and less oil?
    My husband, sweetie that he is, is eating the brownies. He said they could use more flavor.

    Steffany — February 12, 2013 @ 2:31 pm

    Quick question ! (: I am planning to make these soon but found your recipe through which says 6 1/4 cups of flour which seems like a lot. Everything else is the same, except your recipe here says 3 1/4 cups. That’s what I should use right ?

    • Jessica replied: — February 12th, 2013 @ 8:57 pm

      Hi Steffany,

      The recipe above, with 3 1/4 cups is correct. I wouldn’t follow the recipe from another site…and definitely wouldn’t use 6 cups of flour…

      As for the cookie sheet, it depends on how big it is. The pan this recipe uses is a 13×18. Any smaller and you will need to split it into multiple pans.

      Hope you enjoy them!

  219. 219

    Steffany — February 12, 2013 @ 2:38 pm

    Also would a cookie sheet be too small (I have one that is like an inch – inch & a half deep)

    jenn — February 12, 2013 @ 10:04 pm

    so i just made these tonight…im letting them cool overnight and using the heart shaped cookie cutters on them tomorrow. this is the first thing I’ve actually made from scratch and it was not bad at all…very easy to follow. when mixing the wet and dry ingredients together she wasn’t kidding when saying the batter will be very thick almost moldable! spreading the brownie batter on the pan i felt was the most aggravating part considering the thickness…it took a little patience…which i have little of but i pulled through haha. they smell so good i cannot wait to try one tomorrow =) I’m making them for my boyfriend for valentines day i can’t wait for him to try one!

    Over night in the fridge because I didn’t think I could leave them out due to the cream geese but when I tried to cut them his morning the cake part was kind of hard. And mine taste a little plain. I followed the receipe but they don’t taste like brownies or cheesecake. What did I do wrong?

    • Jessica replied: — February 18th, 2013 @ 1:32 pm

      I’m not sure what could have gone wrong, but they aren’t the traditional brownie flavor – they are red velvet. So a slight cocoa flavor. And the cheesecake flavor should have been pretty prominent!

    HI Jessica, Saw our recipe in ‘RELISH’. I LOVe to bake on rainy/stormy days. So when the stom ‘Nemo’ hit last Sat.and the power was still on, I tried your recipe. Couple of comments: the reserved batter was SO stiff that I had to add more milk to make it soft enough to spread over the cream cheese. Secondly the scraps – well I just molded them all together pressed down some and cut out MORE hearts! They don’t look the same but still taste good!

    I have just made these… they look gorgeous – just like in your pic – but are they supposed to taste like jam? there is something about the taste that is quite off-putting… and they are extremely dense on the bottom – did i do something wrong or is that what they are supposed to be like… i haven’t had much experience with red velvet – i know many people adore them – i am making these to serve for valentine’s day dessert at our restaurant and am unsure whether they are just not my cup of tea or if i made em wrong.

    • Jessica replied: — February 18th, 2013 @ 1:33 pm

    just made these tonight upon the request of my mother in law who brought the issue of relish to me.

    mine turned out ok – a little burned around the edges, (probably too much cooking spray) and the layers separated a smidge (i think this was because i was too anxious and didn’t let cool all the way before i began to cut them w/ the cookie cutter)

    heading to a pre-school party tomorrow with these lovely baked goods packaged perfectly to gift, thanks for the inspiration! i am sure they’ll be a hit.

    Denny — February 14, 2013 @ 12:32 am

    I’m so sad – had very high hopes for these brownies but I made them this evening and ended up tossing the entire batch. After baking, the texture was oily and kind of gummy, and the flavor just wasn’t there :-( There’s another recipe on that uses butter instead of oil and a different proportion of fat:flour:sugar so I’m going to give those a try.

    Hi! Just made these today and I think it turned out very pretty looking and I am waiting for it to be over night to taste it but just wanted to ask if the bottom portion is suppose to be more cake like vs. brownie? I love the cheesecake portion and how do I get brownie taste out of the cake batter?

    Also when i’m doing the marbling should i stick the knife all the way down through all the layers or just the top? Thanks!!! super cute idea!! XOXO

    • Jessica replied: — February 18th, 2013 @ 1:37 pm

      I stuck my knife about 75% down. I didn’t do it all the way to the bottom, but I did it through half of the bottom layer. Hope that makes sense!

      And the bottom layer should be dense and no they won’t taste like a traditional brownie. They are different from that!

    Hi Jessica, I have to wonder if different parts of the country had misprints in the Relish article. Several people described their brownies exactly like mine, like oily play dough. Our recipe in Colorado called for 1 cup of oil and it was really just way too much. Is that the amount in the original recipe?

    • Jessica replied: — February 18th, 2013 @ 1:39 pm

      Nope, no misprint. The recipe posted on my website is the original recipe.

      If you read the comments, about 1 out of every 5 people don’t like them. I think it’s a personal thing, some love them…others don’t! Sorry!

    My husband and I celebrated Valentine’s Day on Sunday because he was out of town for work all last week.

    He loves Red Velvet, so I wanted to surprise him with these. They were AWESOME! We both loved them! Plus, they are so pretty. I have no idea what that above commenter is talking about…but maybe she did something wrong? My whole family is already asking for a second batch!

    These look delicious and I’m planning on making these for my wedding dessert table. Can I please ask how long they keep for/can they be frozen?
    Yum, can’t wait to make them

    • Jessica replied: — February 25th, 2013 @ 12:32 pm

      I have never tried freezing them, but when storing in the fridge, they are best served within 2 days.

    Are these sturdy enough to be placed on skewers/cake pop sticks? Also, if I substitute blue food coloring for the red will they be blue?

    I am planning to make these as party favors for my sister’s bridal shower as it is the day after valentines day this year and her color is blue so I though this would connect the “holiday” with her day =)

    • Jessica replied: — February 7th, 2014 @ 2:05 pm

      If you cut them small enough, yes they could be stuck on skewers.

      And yes, if you use blue food coloring they will be blue.

      Hope your sister likes them!

    Hi! I was wondering if these brownies “melt” easily, just in case I want to send them to my loved one overseas?

    • Jessica replied: — February 7th, 2014 @ 2:00 pm

      Because of the cream cheese/cheesecake part, I would not recommend mailing them. They will need to be refrigerated if not eaten within a few hours.

    I made these for Bunco last night, so fun and were a huge hit!!! I made two batches. The only thing I changed was instead of using 3/4 cup of the brownie batter I used 1/2 cup that gave me a little more contrast with the red n white swirl. I served with sliced fresh strawberries and whipped cream on the side then drizzled a little chocolate. I’m going to bring these to work as well. Thanks for the recipe!!! 5 stars!!!

    • Jessica replied: — February 13th, 2014 @ 11:51 am

      I would only make half of the batter instead of a full batch. Then I would bake it at the same temperature, but start checking them much sooner. You will know when they are done baking when they no longer giggle in the middle.

    Rebecca — February 13, 2014 @ 7:34 am

    I made these and they are great but wasn’t sure about te consistency? It seemed very sticky. I am not sure if the pan was to deep making them
    To thick or that is the way they are supposed to be.

    I’d be careful with the 3o min or until the middle no longer jiggles bit, I kept putting mine in for 5 more min because each time the middle still giggled and now they are a bit dry. They are still very good and I will make them again, but I’ll just trust them to set up a bit more after they cool and only bake for 30 min. Thanks!

    I took ages to make sure all the measurements and swirls were perfect… and then because your recipe doesn’t specify that your heat is in farenheit, I put it the highest I could in celsius to try and go up to 350 and it completely burnt. Valentines day present ruined. Lol.

    I made these tonight – I was only able to drag the knife through the top two layers, the bottom one was too dense. Is that how you did it?

    I haven’t tasted them yet, but they look pretty good. The cream cheese swirls got a little dark making them look a lot less appealing but I’m guessing won’t make them taste bad.
