Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies

June 10, 2010

It seems I cannot make it through a week without making brownies and I love variety.  These are rich, chewy and extremely gooey.  I do believe a fork is required.  This particular recipe also satisfies my cravings for cheese cake with very little time spent.  Please send me your brownie recipes!

Cream Cheese Brownies
