Beat together the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and egg yolk until smooth.
Stir in red food colouring, a drop at a time, until it reaches the desired shade. Leave this to one side while you prepare the brownie mix.
Preheat oven: 180°C / 160°C (fan) / Gas Mark 4 / 350°F
Melt the butter and dark chocolate in the microwave (no more than 30secs at a time) and stir until smooth.
Beat the eggs and sugar together until light and fluffy, then pour in the slightly cooled chocolate mix, stirring together until combined.
Sieve in the flour and cocoa powder, gently folding into the mix until just smooth, before stirring in the Baileys and vinegar, mixing till even throughout.
Pour ¾ of the brownie mix into a lined 8inch square tin and spread evenly in the pan before dolloping spoonfuls of the cheesecake mix spaced out on top.
Spoon the remaining brownie mix on top and swirl together with a knife or skewer.
Bake for 25-30mins until the top is lightly cracked, with only a slight wobble in the middle. Allow the brownies to cool before cutting into squares.
