Red Velvet Cream Cheese Brownies

I have a confession: I love red velvet everything! It’s that chocolatey taste that just melts in my mouth so good! I can put red velvet on everything! Next to red velvet, I love cheesecake, so this recipe is just in time! The key to making this healthy is to cut the brownies into the one-inch sizes to keep your portions down. Take a look below:
