These are so good, I even paid the carpet cleaner in brownies! Seriously, it seemed to work well! HA!
Without further adieu let's get to the recipe. These are so easy, and to be honest, they get even better the more chilled they are! I loved them a couple hours after I made them but after they were in the fridge overnight, they were *in my best opera voice* AMMAAZZZzZIINNNGG!
You will need:
Any brownie mix, prepared and baked
in a 9x13 pan
4 8oz. bricks of cream cheese, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla (or more, teehee)
Food coloring (optional)
pastry bag or Ziploc bag.
Prepare your brownies as directed. Bake them completely and let them sit while you prepare the cheesecake filling.
In a bowl mix cream cheese, eggs, sugar, flour and vanilla. Mix with a hand mixer until it is completely smooth and creamy. Easy, right?
Now, remove 1/2-3/4 cup of the batter and put it into a separate bowl. Add food color and mix completely. You can do more than one color. If you choose to use 2 or more colors, use 1/4-1/3 cup for each color. Put each color in either a pastry bag, or a Ziploc bag that you cut the tip off of.
Spread cheesecake batter over the brownies.
Take your colored batter and make "poka bots" all over the top! It is fun just TELLING you about it!
Bake at 325 degree's for 30-40 minutes. Don't bake it until it is browned, just until the middle isn't wiggly and jiggly anymore! The "dots" will not spread, they will stay in tact and not run together, it is so cool!
Let cool completely before you cut them. It makes a huge difference in my opinion. If you have time, cover and refrigerate.
I think these would be awesome for parties. You can coordinate the colors with party decorations, etc.
