This is a recipe from my soon to be Mother in Law. It's a family favorite that I made for the first time with rave reviews. I've been told it was originally a Pillsbury Bake-Off recipe.

I didn't think it was possible to make cream cheese brownies any better, but this recipe does my adding the frosting. These were rich, very chocolatey, but not OVERLY sweet. Yum. I'll make these again.

I have made these before and they are fantastic! I don't make them that often or I would be rolling out the door. My kids don't like nuts to well and I leave them out and they still are just great!

WOW is the best way to describe these bars. Everyone loved them - I didn't get one when I made them to take to church! The cream cheese really makes these special and keeps them moist. The steps are many but easy. I refrigerated them after they cooled so the marshmallow/chocolate topping would set & cut better. Will make again and again - thanks for such a good recipe!
