National Cream Cheese Brownies Day-With a Twist!

Cream Cheese Brownies

It’s another amazing food holiday today! Today is National Cream Cheese Brownies Day! To celebrate, I am sharing a recipe for Goat Cheese Swirled Brownies.  I know this may sound strange, but these were so good! I made them for the 4th of July over the summer and so I used red white, and blue colors, but since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I would recommend pink!  This would be a great dessert to share with a loved one or bring to a Valentine’s Day party.  My girlfriends and I always get together on Valentine’s Day and this would be the perfect thing to make for dessert.  In fact, I might go and whip up a batch right now! Yum!

3. Beat the goat cheese, cream cheese, honey, flour, and egg until smooth and creamy.  Divide the mixture into three small bowls.  Color one with blue, one with red, and leave the other alone.  Drop spoonfuls of the goat cheese mixtures into the pan with the brownie batter. Spoon the rest of the batter on top and then, using a toothpick or knife, swirl the goat cheese into the batter.  Bake for about 30 minutes. Let cool.
