    Spoon filling mixture over brownie batter in pan. Cut through filling mixture and batter with knife several times for marbled design. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.

Expert Tips

  • We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the original.
  • To quickly soften the cream cheese, remove wrapper and place in microwavable bowl. Microwave on High for 10 to 15 seconds.
  • Miniature chocolate chips are a great substitute for regular chips. Because they're so small, you can use less but have just as much chocolate flavor.
  • For mocha brownies, stir in 1 teaspoon instant espresso or coffee granules with the brownie mix.
