OK this is kind of a cheat recipe. Now you could go ahead and make your own brownies, but I used a box. It was delicious. I don’t feel bad.
The cream cheese swirl is smooth and tart. The thick chewy brownie is a dream.
The whole thing took all of like 30 minutes start to finish and would impress anyone who you felt worthy of sharing them with!
What you need,
1 box brownie mix, I used a Duncan Hines, Thick and Chewy
1 8oz pkg. cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Pinch of salt
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper and spray well with non-stick spray.
In a large bowl mix the brownies according to the package directions.
In a separate bowl, heat the cream cheese in the microwave for 30 seconds or so until it is smooth when you stir it.
Add the sour cream, flour, sugar, vanilla and salt. Stir to fully combine.
Pour ¾ of the brownie batter into the prepared pan and spread into an even layer. Scoop the cream cheese mixture on top and spread into an even layer on top of the brownie. Dollop the remaining brownie batter on the top, then use a knife to swirl the brownie mixture into the cream cheese.
Don’t overdo it, just a little bit.
Bake the brownies as suggested on the box.
Once they are done let them cool in the pan then using the parchment paper remove them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Cut into squares and stuff in your face. You can keep them in an airtight container for a couple days in the fridge or you can freeze them. You won’t need to do either of these things, they are amazing and you are gonna eat them all!
These brownies were delightful. I wish I had one or 3 of them right now!
