Red Velvet Cream Cheese Bars

red velvet bars
A few weeks ago, we had a “red” party for our personal progress night at church.Of course, that means you have to have a “red” treat! You can always see what treats are a hit and the ones that aren’t by if the girls ask for another one. This was a big hit! If your still wondering what you want to take to that Easter egg BBQ, stop wondering, this is what you should take!

  • Spray a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray and spread half of the cream cheese mixture in bottom of pan. Make sure to completely cover the bottom of the pan.
  • Then spread half of the red velvet brownie mixture over top of the cream cheese mixture. It won’t spread evenly, but you can dollop it onto the mixture and move it around slightly to cover the surface the best you can.
  • Pour and spread remaining cream cheese mixture over top of the red velvet brownie layer, and then remaining red velvet brownie mix. Using a knife swirl through all layers.
  • Don’t overdo it, but make sure you swirl the batter in 2 or 3 inch swirls throughout the pan.
  • Bake at 350° for about 40-45 minutes. Be sure mixture is set in the middle. Cook additional 5 or 10 minutes if necessary, depending on the heat of your oven.
