Although another dozen of these would have been lovely, I made a pan of homemade Cream Cheese Brownies for my honey for Valentine's Day.
I dug out my large Wilton heart cookie cutter to make them a little extra special for that day.
Adding a simple cream cheese layer really dresses up ordinary brownies.
So, here's what you do!
CREAM CHEESE BROWNIES
Prepare your favorite brownie batter. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan.
In a small bowl, beat together until smooth:
1 8-oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Spoon cream cheese mixture over brownie batter. I like to spoon 3 long sections, lengthwise.
Then, using a knife, drag back and forth, creating a swirl effect:
Sprinkle with semisweet chocolate chips (as much or as little as you like) ;-)
Bake, according to brownie directions. Be careful not to let the cream cheese layer brown.
