I love brownies! I do like making them from scratch - here's my recipe - but sometimes even a good baker gets busy and can need a little help!
So I was really excited to receive the recipe for Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies from Betty Crocker! The recipe takes a boxed brownie mix and adds a simple extra layer of sweetened cream cheese - it only take a few minutes for this extra step - and turns it into an amazing, delicious dessert!
Here's the recipe:
CREAM CHEESE BROWNIES
4 oz cream cheese, softened (from 8 oz package)
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 box (1 lb 2.4 oz) Betty Crocker® Original Supreme Premium brownie mix
Water, vegetable oil and egg called for on brownie mix box
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350ºF (325ºF for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom only of 9-inch square pan with shortening or cooking spray. In small bowl, beat filling ingredients with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Set aside.
Make brownie batter as directed on box. Spread 3/4 of brownie batter in pan. Spoon filling by tablespoonfuls evenly onto brownie batter. Spoon remaining brownie batter over filling. Cut through mixture with knife several times for marbled design. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.
Bake 40 to 44 minutes or until toothpick inserted in brownie 1 inch from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours. For 16 brownies, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Store covered in refrigerator.
