Red Velvet Cheesecake Swirl Brownies Recipe

Next add in the sugar and mix well with a spatula.

Follow that with the vanilla, cocoa powder, salt, vinegar and red food colouring. Add a little colouring at a time until you achieve a similar shade to the picture below. You will need a fair amount but remember that it will always lighten in colour when baked. Also, you can always add more but you can’t take it out. Mix well until everything is evenly combined.
