Cheesecake Brownies

By Sinea Pies

Cheesecake brownies are a favorite easy-to-make dessert in our household. It satisfies two sweet-cravings at the same time! Cheesecake and chocolate. Can it get any better than that? (Maybe when it's slightly warmed up with some rich, creamy vanilla ice cream on the side!)

There are quite a few recipes out there for "marble brownies" or "cheesecake brownies" but this Duncan Hines version-- straight from their website and brownie mix boxes-- is one that I prefer. 
Any of the Duncan Hines brownie mixes work fine in this recipe.

Cheesecake Brownies Recipe
1 pkg Duncan Hines® Double Fudge Decadent Brownie Mix
1 (3 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
3 tbsp butter or margarine, softened
3 tbsp granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tbsp all-purpose flour
