Serves: 16


  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1⁄4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg, separated, with yolk reserved for brownie batter
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ Supreme Original Brownie Mix
  • 1⁄2 cup chocolate chips


  • Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom of 9”x9” pan with shortening or cooking spray. To make the filling, mix cream cheese and sugar in a small bowl, stirring with a spoon until smooth. Add flour, egg white and vanilla and mix until well blended. Set aside.
  • Make brownie batter as directed on box with the addition of reserved egg yolk. Reserve ½ cup brownie batter and set aside. Spread remaining batter in pan.
  • Spoon cream cheese filling evenly onto batter, one tablespoon at a time, to create 3 rows of 3 dollops each. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the reserved brownie batter into the center of each dollop of filling. Draw a knife through the dollops horizontally, then vertically to form a swirled design. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.
  • Bake 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted at least 2” from the side of the pan comes out almost clean. Cool 30 minutes on a cooling rack. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour. Slice into bars and store
