These cream cheese swirl brownies, also called cheesecake brownies are stunning to look at and just brilliant tasting, sure to wow anyone who takes a bite!
With brownies being a well represented delegation in the somewhat meagre dessert section of this blog, you might realise that they are my favourite things to bake for family and friends. Not as much for myself, because, well, they are decadent. They make you lose any dietary resolve you may have. There’s no Pause button here. One brownie leads to another, and soon you are totally overcome by the guilt of consuming as many calories as a small country
There’s one thing I usually consider before sinking my teeth into something totally sinful
“Is it going to be worth it?”
This brownie ticks all the boxes as far as culinary debauchery goes
And to top all of it, cream cheese!
I don’t bring to you a healthy or low cal brownie here, but you bite into one small piece, and I can promise you it is going to be worth it. You bake this for your family or friends this festive season, and they will remember this for a long long time. It is THAT good
And yes, the marbled effect makes it quite a stunning piece of dessert
