Found this on an old index card and not really sure who gave it to me, so cannot honestly give credit where credit is due, but these brownies are a nice change from the normal brownie and I hope you like them as well as I did.

Oz, I owe you a recipe from the football pool a few weeks ago. These are great! Not overly sweet but just right. I love the use of cream cheese with the brownies. I just hope I don't eat the whole pan! I will definitely making this again ;)

Thanks for a great treat Oz! This is a nice cakey brownie and I really liked the cream cheese topping! I may add a little more chocolate next time to increase that flavor, I love chocolate!!
