Ingredients

  • 1 package fudge brownie mix (13x9-inch pan size)
  • 1/2 cup white baking chips
  • FILLING:
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1 ounce semisweet chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons whole milk

Directions

  • Prepare brownies according to package directions for cakelike brownies; fold in white chips. Spread half of the batter in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan.
  • In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg, flour and orange extract.
  • Carefully spread cream cheese mixture over batter. Drop remaining brownie batter by tablespoonfuls over cream cheese layer. Cut through batter with a knife to swirl.
  • Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean. Cool on a wire rack.
  • For frosting, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate and butter; stir until smooth. Cool slightly; stir in confectioners' sugar and enough milk to achieve spreading consistency. Frost brownies.
