Baked Goods..."Red Velvet and Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies"

Over the Holiday Season I scored an amazing magazine filled with different kinds of treats that I couldn't wait to try out for myself. I love to bake and when I saw a recipe for Red Velvet and Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies...I just HAD to make it. Nothing screams delicious to me more than red velvet anything! The recipe was easy to follow and quick to bake so it was a great little dessert to give out as gifts and as an end to a terrific holiday meal. Here is the recipe below with a link to the magazine from Hoffman Media, that has even more scrumptious desserts to try!
