St. Patty’s Day Brownies
1 box brownie mix plus ingredients listed on the package, prepared according to box directions
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
½ cup sugar
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp vanilla
green food coloring (I used 12 drops)
optional: mint flavoring added to brownie mix or frosting!
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray using the Kitchen Spritzer. (or cover dish with parchment paper to easily remove after cooking)
Pour prepared brownie batter into the prepared 9 x 13 inch dish.
2. In a bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar together until well blended. Beat in the egg, flour, vanilla, and food coloring until well blended and smooth. Drop cream cheese mixture by tablespoonfuls evenly on top of batter. With knife, cut through mixture a few times to marble.
3. Bake as directed on brownie mix box or until toothpick inserted in center comes out almost clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour and cut into squares. Store in refrigerator.
