This easy recipe can be prepared entirely with the use of a few mixing bowls, spatula and whisk with pantry ingredients. The results are a rich and decadent dessert for any occasion.

Notes: Make sure to use the regular cream cheese as opposed to whipped, which will not give you the same results. You could create a swirl at this stage with the cream cheese topping.

  • 2 tablespoons flour

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter and flour an 8 inch square brownie pan.

  4. Mix the ingredients for the cream cheese topping in a bowl and spread evenly on top of the brownie mixture. You can use a knife to create swirls at this point.
  5. Bake for 35 minutes. Cool brownies on a rack.
