Fudgy Cream Cheese Brownies

It seems I was in the mood for chocolate yesterday.  So, here is a delicious brownie recipe that is better for you than most – it’s from Weight Watchers.  With ribbons of cream cheese swirled throughout, you will find that not only are these brownies scrumptious, but they are also surprisingly simple to make!

Fudgy Cream Cheese Brownies
(from Weight Watchers Magazine All Things Sweet cookbook)
3/4 cup sugar
6 tablespoons butter or reduced-calorie stick margarine, softened
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 8-ounce bar reduced fat cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 large egg white

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Beat 3/4 cup sugar and butter at medium speed until light and fluffy.  Add egg, 1 egg white, and vanilla and beat well.  Add flour and cocoa and beat well.  Pour batter into a 9-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray and set aside.

Beat cream cheese and 1/4 cup sugar at high speed until smooth.  Add 1 egg white and beat well.  Dollop cream cheese mixture over chocolate mixture and swirl together using the tip of a knife.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.  Let cool completely on a wire rack.  Cut into squares. Yields 16 brownies.

These brownies are wonderfully moist and rich.  Oozing with chocolaty goodness, they are so soft they nearly melt in your mouth.  This recipe is definitely a keeper!
Until next time,

    Wow! These brownies look SO good! I love that they are semi- healthy, too! With all the butter and sugar in my life, i could use a lighter brownie recipe. Especially one with cream cheese swirls :) thank you for the link up!

    Oh, dear! I just might have to try these, and since my hubby is not fond of cream cheese, that would leave the entire batch for me, right? Hmmmm……:-) Thank you for sharing this delectable treat with us!
