Red Velvet Cookie Dough Cheesecake Brownies

February 12, 2013Teresa

Red Velvet Cookie Dough Cheesecake Brownies are to die for! Here’s one more red velvet recipe before Valentine’s Day! These decadent brownies are incredibly easy since they use boxed Duncan Hines Red Velvet cake mixes.

There’s a delicious cheesecake filling in the middle and the red velvet topping is topped with more chocolaty flavor with the addition of lots of white chocolate chips! These brownies rock! Red Velvet Cookie Dough Cheesecake Brownies are so delightful, so scrumptious, so sweet, so chocolaty delicious!

These festive and beautiful brownies are an elegant dessert for holiday baking, Valentine’s Day, or special occasions like anniversaries, birthdays, bridal and baby showers, or on those days when you just want comfort food.

The rich cheesecake filling is thick and sweet, and the white chocolate chips add additional punch to this great recipe. If you choose, you can swap out the white chocolate chips for semi-sweet chocolate chips or red M&M’s (which I used the first time I made this recipe).

The idea for this recipe comes from my favorite recipe exchange person, Mimi Pownall. Her Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars are fantastic. I have used that recipe with all kinds of assorted cookie doughs and combinations of chips. No matter the combination, each time the recipe comes out melt-in-your-mouth good.

If you’re looking for a thrilling Valentine’s dessert that’s super easy to make because you start with boxed cake mix, yet has all the taste of a “from scratch” dessert then look no farther. These super-duper Red Velvet Cookie Dough Cheesecake Brownies will get Valentine’s day off to a great start! Consider giving these amazing goodies a try. Your family will be so pleased that you did!

When I initially posted this recipe in February 2013, I was still using an iPhone for a camera so my pictures weren’t particularly clear. As a result, I’ve been remaking all my first year blog recipes where I used the iPhone.

I remade this recipe (February 2016) for my husband to take as gifts to friends. I retook the pictures and these turned out a little bit better. Red Velvet Cookie Dough Cheesecake Brownies are as mouthwatering as you could possibly want. Make them yourself and you’ll see!

Recipe Notes

NOTE:  I've always made the cookie dough part with a full cup of oil, however, one individual thought this was too oily. You can decrease the oil to 1/2 cup and substitute 1/2 cup water for the remaining part of the cookie dough.

NOTE: This recipe calls for two full boxes of Red Velvet Cake Mix--not one.
