Now I have to confess that these are a version of my popular Low Carb Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies, which I made for my book Low Carb Chocolate Recipes. But other than the addition of orange food dye to the cheesecake layer, I've improved the recipe a little, and changed the yield.

But the combination of the soft and creamy cheesecake layer over the chocolate brownie layer is still a fantastic one – and definitely worth trying!

How to Make Halloween Brownies

Cream together some butter and a low carb sweetener in a stand mixer. I use Lakanto (get 20% off if you use coupon code SAFTC!) but something like Swerve would work well too. Add almond flour, eggs, unsweetened cocoa powder and baking powder. Low Carb Halloween Brownies - a tasty treat for the whole family! Low carb and keto recipe.

Beat until smooth. Pour into an 8×8″ square tin lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

In a second stand mixer bowl (if you have one), whisk together some softened cream cheese, more sweetener, another egg and some vanilla extract. If you don't have two bowls then you could clean out the first stand mixer bowl, or use a hand mixer for the cheesecake layer. 

Add some orange food dye (I love gel food coloring), and stir well, until you reach a good color. It will darken as it bakes as you can see from my photos.

Spoon the mixture on top of the chocolate brownie layer. Use a skewer or toothpick to gently swirl the layers together.

Bake in a preheated oven for around 20-25 minutes or until the cheesecake topping is firm. Transfer the brownies to a cooling rack and let cool, then cut into 9 squares.
