I've made this twice in the past two weeks, both times to rave reviews. The first time -- in honor of St. Pat's Day -- I tinted it by adding a drop or two of green food coloring, and it made a *very* pretty contrast to the dark chocolate brownies (and would be great when paired with mint-flavored brownies!). The second time, I kept it plain, but added about 1/8 teaspoon of almond extract to the topping to further bring out the nutty flavor of that batch of brownies. Again, fantastic! My fiance and our roomie both love cream cheese, so this has become our new favorite brownie topping. It's heavenly paired with Recipe #32204 -- really decadent and yummy! Thanks for sharing!

I am a newlywed living in beautiful Virginia with my husband and 3 doggies. I'm a little on the hyper side and I am happiest playing hostess and cooking for a crowd! My kitchen is my domain and I find cooking to be very therapeutic. On a day off you might find me brewing a fresh pot of iced tea and hanging out in the kitchen either cleaning and organizing or tinkering with recipes! I rarely follow favorite recipes to a "T", preferring instead to allow my creative side to take over. I especially love the holidays because it gives me even more of an excuse to bake! In the summertime I love visiting my mom and stepdad in the VA Beach area. I love the ocean and I love to go shopping with my mom!
