Easy Cream Cheese Brownies

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Pam-I-Am

This makes a big 13x9 pan of brownies, using a brownie box mix. Super easy and looks gormet when you are done! (Be sure to buy the box mix that says that it makes a 13x9 recipe or you'll have problems.) The mix I use is by Betty Crocker.

Loved this recipe. I added a pinch of instant coffee to enhance the flavor of the brownies. I also added 1/2 tsp of vanilla and 1/2 tsp almond extract to the cream cheese mixture. These brownies came out rich and moist!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Brownie

  • 566.99 g package fudge brownie mix (13x9 size)
  • 59.14 ml water (or what mix calls for)
  • 78.07 ml oil (or what your mix calls for)
  • 2 eggs (or what your mix calls for)
  • Topping

  • 226.79 g package cream cheese
  • 78.07 ml sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2.46 ml vanilla

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
  2. Prepare the brownie mix according to package directions (water, oil, eggs).
  3. Pour into a greased 13x9-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 dolups over the whole pan, leaving some brownie showing inbetween.
  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 over work it.
  8. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Cool; cut into squares. (These will also freeze well).
