Cheesecake Layer:


 Preheat oven to 350 º. Line an 8×8-inch pan with nonstick foil and set aside.
To make brownies, add  the melted butter to a large bowl and mix in the sugar, vanilla, cocoa powder, and food coloring. Whisk in the eggs.
Fold in the flour until combined. Spread in the pan and reserve 1/4 cup of the batter for the swirl.

To make the cream cheese layer, beat together the cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla in a medium bowl.

Gently spread the cream cheese layer on top of the brownie batter in the pan. Dollop the remaining brownie batter over the cream cheese layer.

Bake the brownies for 30 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely. Chill and then cut into bars.
