Expert Tips

  • Softening cream cheese is easy. Just microwave unwrapped cream cheese in a microwavable bowl on High for 15 to 20 seconds.
  • To make a pinker filling, add a few drops of red gel food color when making the cream cheese filling.
  • Using a plastic knife for fudgy, moist brownies makes cutting them easier.
