Cream Cheese Brownies

Melanie Kibler


Brownie mix:

1 (20 ounce) package fudge brownie mix (13×9 size)

1/4 cup water (or what mix calls for)

1/3 cup oil (or what your mix calls for)

2 eggs (or what your mix calls for)


1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese

1/3 cup sugar

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Baking Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

  2. Prepare the brownie mix according to package directions (water, oil, eggs).

  3. Pour into a greased 13×9-inch baking pan.

  4. Beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.

  5. Add sugar and mix. Add vanilla and egg; mix until well-blended.

  6. Place cheese mixture in dollops over the whole pan, leaving some brownie showing in between. Sprinkle top of brownies with chocolate chips (if desired)

  7. Cut or swirl through batter several times with a knife or fork for a marbled effect. It can be tricky to get a good marble effect so be careful not to overwork it.

  8. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Cool; cut into squares. (These will also freeze well).
