In the Kitchen: Zebra Brownies

We're back to the best part of any meal this week, dessert! An easy, delicious twist on the classic brownie, cream cheese lovers get your aprons on because you are going to love this one. You will find a link to a printable recipe card at the end of this post.

Prep Time: 20 min | Bake time: 30 min | Serves 24

Filling Ingredients:
2 pkgs cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg

Brownie Ingredients:
22.5 oz pkg fudge brownie mix
1/3 cup very hot water
1/3 cup oil
1 egg

Heat oven to 350°. Generously grease the bottom only of a 13x19 pan.

In a small bowl, blend all filling ingredients.

Beat at medium speed until smooth, about 1 minute. Set aside. But I first recommend a little taste test :)

In a large bowl, combine all brownie ingredients, beat 50 strokes with a spoon.

Spread half of the brownie batter in prepared pan. Spoon cream cheese mixture over batter, speading to cover.

Place spoonfuls of remaining batter on top of cream cheese and marble with a butter knife.

Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool and refrigerate for about one hour before serving.

If you have even the tiniest lack of self control, I recommend you turn your eyes away from the brownies and forget you ever saw them, because I dare you to eat just one! Otherwise, eat up and enjoy! I'd love to hear what you think if you give this yummy treat a try.

I would have absolutely no control just eating one piece! I would love to make but I don't know what fudge brownie mix is? Is it an American product? Looks mouth watering.
