Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies Recipe

Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies Recipe

I'm a chocolate lover, and this treat has satisfied my cravings many times. No one guesses the brownies are light because their chewy texture and rich chocolate taste can't be beat. My family requests them often, and I'm happy to oblige. —Heidi Johnson Worland, Wyoming
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 3 large eggs, divided use
  • 6 tablespoons reduced-fat butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Separate two eggs, putting each white in a separate bowl (discard yolks or save for another use); set aside. In a small bowl, beat butter and 3/4 cup sugar until crumbly. Beat in the whole egg, one egg white and vanilla until well combined. Combine flour and cocoa; gradually add to egg mixture until blended. Pour into a 9-in. square baking pan coated with cooking spray; set aside.
  • 2. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and remaining sugar until smooth. Beat in the second egg white. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls over the batter; cut through batter with a knife to swirl.
  • 3. Bake 25-30 minutes or until set and edges pull away from sides of pan. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 1 dozen.

"Great recipe, I think next time I will double to brownie batter but not the cream cheese and use a larger pan. Defiantly worth making"

"Made these brownies with my kids for fiances bday and we all really enjoyed them. They are very soft and good warm too. I enjoyed them best after keeping them in the fridge overnight and then letting them sit out to become room temperature. (Very moist). My kids enjoyed them best warm out of the oven. I ended up using regular butter and cream cheese( not low fat) and they were good. ( what I had on hand) Next time I'll try with low fat ingredients. Also only had an 8x8 pan so that's what I used. I just cooked them like 10 min longer. Still came out fine"
