Red Velvet Cheesecake Bars

I have a confession to make… Are you ready?

I don’t like red velvet cake.

I know, I know. I also kill puppies and laugh at funerals. Really, though, it’s that it isn’t chocolaty enough to be chocolate cake or vanilla-y to be vanilla. It’s tastes to me like…. sweet nothing. With cream cheese frosting, which is always delicious. However, it does seem to be the favorite cake of nearly everyone I know, so I know that I’m the exception. With one quick flash of red,  you can make best friends and devoted fans for life– so I was intrigued when I saw a recipe at Baking Bites for Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies. Faster and easier than making a multi-layer cake, super-pretty, and all the flair of red velvet– without such a wishy-washy taste– and cheesecake is a perfect riff on cream cheese frosting.

Ok, I admit it, I’m still not in love. But I’m the only one! My husband’s coworkers have requested them twice since I sent them in 2 weeks ago, his boss went out of his way to mention how much he liked them, and I feel like a rock star every time I pull something so effortlessly pretty out of the oven– after 15 minutes of work. So if you like red velvet cake– or want hordes of adoring fans– get to it.
