Marbled Brownies

Posted by moderndaygourmet on August 31, 2007

Otherwise known as cream cheese brownies. They don’t put this recipe on the Duncan Hines boxes anymore. Why is that? Good thing I saved it way back when.

1 package brownie mix
2 packages (3 ounces each) cream cheese
5 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup sugar
5 eggs
2 tablespoons flour
¾ teaspoon vanilla

3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 ½ cups confectioners’ sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Soften the cream cheese and butter; beat together. Add the sugar, 2 eggs, flour and vanilla. Beat until smooth and set aside.

Empty brownie mix and flavor packet into medium size bowl. Add 2 tablespoons water and 3 eggs. Mix by hand about 50 strokes.

Pour half the brownie batter into a greased 9×13 pan; pour all the cream cheese over the brownie layer. Spoon the remaining brownie batter here and there over the cream cheese batter. Pull a knife through the batter in wide curves to create a swirled appearance.

Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until done. Cool and frost.

For icing, melt butter in a medium saucepan and stir in cocoa until dissolved. Add sugar, milk and vanilla. Stir until smooth. Add more milk if necessary to make a soft spreading consistency.
