Red, White, & Blue - Red Velvet Cream Cheese Brownies

I have seen brownies made from cake mix before, but never tried it myself. I saw a recipe for red velvet brownies online, but I didn't have all the ingredients I needed. I saw that Bakerella made brownies from a chocolate cake mix, so I tweaked that recipe a little for the red velvet box of cake mix I had in my pantry.

1 pkg Red Velvet Cake Mix
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
8 tbsp water

Cream Cheese Topping (Bakerella's Recipe):
1 8 oz. pkg cream cheese (softened)
2 eggs
1 lb confectioner’s sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

I dyed some of the cream cheese topping blue before I swirled it on top. It kind of baked into the brownie in some places, so there are parts where the cream cheese is sandwiched between the brownie. The verdict? YUM!
