Welcome to the best recipe ever for a red velvet and brownie lover! These gorgeous red squares are sure to impress anyone. If you prefer a bit more of that cream cheese icing flavor your can also just do a full layer of cream cheese icing instead of the drizzle, but I absolutely love the look of the drizzle – it is just to pretty with the red brownie shining through.
