2 Bite Brownies With Cream Cheese Filling
This one is easy - it uses a brownie mix and a package of cream cheese! I made mine a bit lighter by substituting Egg Beaters for the 2 eggs, and low fat cream cheese, and applesauce for the oil. They turned out fantastic, so feel free to experiment with lower calorie or lower fat options.
eggs (or 1/2 cup egg beaters)
oil (or applesauce)
package cream cheese (or neufchatel)
Place cream cheese package in freezer for 30-45 minutes before beginning to firm it up. That makes it easier to cut.
When very firm, cut the cream cheese into 36 cubes, as shown.
Preheat oven to 350°. Spray mini-muffin pans with cooking or baking spray.
Combine the brownie mix, eggs (or Egg Beaters), water, and oil (or applesauce). Beat 50 strokes until well blended.
Fill mini-muffin cups about 2/3 full with batter. Place a cube of cream cheese in the middle of each brownie and press until it touches the bottom.
Bake at 350° for 23 - 25 minutes. Cool in pan for 5 minutes, then remove brownies to rack to cool completely.
