Enjoy this brownie recipe, after all, February is National Snack Food Month!




1 (20 ounce) packages fudge brownie mix ( 13×9 size)

1/4 cup water ( or what mix calls for)

1/3 cup oil ( or what your mix calls for)

2 eggs ( or what your mix calls for)



1 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese

1/3 cup sugar

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

Prepare the brownie mix according to package directions (water, oil, eggs).

Pour into a greased 13×9-inch baking pan.

Beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.

Add sugar and mix. Add vanilla and egg; mix until well-blended.

Place cheese mixture in dollops over the whole pan, leaving some brownie showing in between.

Cut or swirl through batter several times with a knife or fork for a marbled effect. It can be tricky to get a good marble effect so be careful not to over work it.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Cool; cut into squares. (These will also freeze well).
