Scream! Cheese Swirl Brownies

Scream Cheese Swirl Brownies Recipe

I've told y'all how I'm a Hamburger Helper/Stouffer's Lasagna kind of cook. Well this Betty Crocker Recipe is seriously right up my alley. Yes it uses a box mix (the HORROR!) but it gives it a new twist. PLUS, it is great for the Holiday, you could change the colors for any other Holiday (pastel colors for Easter, Red/ Pink for Valentine's, Red/ Green for Christmas) but also it isn't scary. And I have a munchkin who is a little sensitive so finding recipes that went with Halloween, were easy to make, AND weren't scary was a hard task. And cream cheese makes everything yummier.

What You Need:
4oz each cream cheese, softened (from 8 oz package)
1 egg
3 tablespoons sugar
4 drops red food color
4 drops yellow food color
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 box (1 lb 2.4 oz) Betty Crocker® Original Supreme Premium brownie mix
Water, vegetable oil and egg called for on brownie mix box

What You Do:
1 - Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom only of 9-inch square pan with shortening or cooking spray. In small bowl, beat filling ingredients with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Set aside.

2 - Make brownie batter as directed on box. Spread 3/4 of brownie batter in pan. Spoon filling by tablespoonfuls evenly onto brownie batter. Spoon remaining brownie batter over filling. For marbled design, pull knife through batter and filling in wide curves; turn pan and repeat, if desired.

3 - Bake 40 to 44 minutes or until toothpick inserted 1 inch from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool completely at room temperature, about 1 1/2 hours. Refrigerate at least 1 hour until chilled. For brownies, cut with plastic knife into 4 rows by 4 rows. Store covered in refrigerator.
