Cream Cheese Brownie Cups
These Cream Cheese Brownie Cups are much like my Brownie Bites. I start with a brownie mix. Occasionally when I’m pressed for time, I use short-cut methods to cook and bake. There is nothing wrong with using a boxed mix.
As well, some people don’t like to cook or bake, but at times they’re asked to contribute to a school party or such. This is a quick and simple recipe for those times. If you have a blue-ribbon-award-winning brownie recipe, of course, you can use it instead of a mix.
This is the type of brownie mix I use for this recipe. Be sure to get the brownie mix that makes enough for a 9×13 inch pan. (A lot of the mixes are for an 8×8 pan.) Then you’ll need ingredients that it is called for on the package for the fudgy brownies. Most mixes will have a fudgy mix or a ‘cake-like’ mix, I used the recipe for the fudge mix.
Cream Cheese Brownie Cups
For the cream cheese mixture, you’ll need 4-ounces of room temperature cream cheese, 1 large egg, and 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Be sure to allow the cream cheese and egg to come to room temperature.
If you prefer, you can swirl the cream cheese mixture with the brownie mixture to get a marbled effect.
To do this, you will pour the brownie mixture into the cupcake liner, then top with the cream cheese mixture. Use a wooden pick and insert it into the cupcake about an inch and swirl around to combine the mixtures.

*One thing I wish I had done with these brownies is to use a toothpick and swirl the cream cheese mixture with the brownie mixture. You would simple pour the brownie mixture into the cupcake liner, then top with the cream cheese mixture. Use a wooden pick and insert it into the cupcake about an inch and swirl around to combine the mixtures.©CallMePMc.com All images & content are copyright protected.
