I recently needed a quick dessert to take to a party, and although I typically make something from scratch I did not have time, so I improvised by using a box mix and embellishing. I know for those die hard bakers this is sacrilegious, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.
I mixed up a box of Ghirardelli dark chocolate with chips brownie mix as directed. Then in a separate bowl I made this cream cheese mixture.
Cream cheese mixture:
8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
¼ cup granulated sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
Assemble all ingredients in a bowl and whip until smooth.
Once I whipped this up, I layered the mixture in a pan sprayed with cooking spray, a layer of the brownie mix, and then I dotted the top with the cream cheese mixture, then another layer of brownie mix, and a little more cream cheese mixture, then I took a skewer and mixed it around.
