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!!
OZ...this one is a keeper!!! I made them last night using a springfoam pan and mine turned out beautifully. We are making another pan tonight to serve at a party we are having tomorrow... WHAT A GREAT RECIPE...just enough chocolate, not too sweet and a perfect texture... THANKS for sharing!
