Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies

The commitment of making a cheesecake can often seem daunting—the long bake time and the time required for it to cool and set are sometimes more than end result is worth. Cream cheese swirl brownies are a quick and delicious alternative, with chocolate encompassing the cheesecake! The light texture of these brownies balances perfectly with the delicate swirls of cream cheese, resulting in a dessert you'll want to make simply because you have a little spare time on your hands.
