My daughters chose to make this recipe for the We're Really Cooking Now challenge ZWT 4. They did almost all the work themselves, and I must say they did a fantastic job. The brownies were chewy, crunchy delicious. Loved the gooey cream cheese layer. I was out of pecans, so they substituted walnuts. Made for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe and the fun time we had cooking together making it!

Made & reviewed for ZWT 4 ~ Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! We are brownie addicts in this house & I have to admit that I make them at least twice a week. I wanted to try these as I've never made brownies with cream cheese & was interested to see how they turned out. These are so tasty & easy to make. The only thing that I will say is that they did not turn out the same texture as our regular brownies - but they are just as scrummy & disappeared just as fast! Thanks Ang for a yummy brownie recipe! :)
