St. Paddy’s Day is all about the GREEN and this whole week, that is exactly what I have for you. I am sharing St. Paddy’s Day Brownies to start.
St. Patrick’s Day will be here before you know it and you will want something green to eat as part of the celebration. Today we begin with good old brownies that get an additional swirl of green colored cream cheese batter. They are simple yet festive.

St. Paddy’s Day Brownies
- 1 box Betty Crocker® fudge brownie mix plus eggs, water and oil listed on the package, prepared according to box directions
- 1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp vanilla
- green food coloring (I used 12 drops)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
- Pour prepared brownie batter into the prepared 9 x 13 inch dish.
- In a bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar together until well blended.
- Beat in the egg, flour, vanilla, and food coloring until well blended and smooth.
- Drop cream cheese mixture by tablespoonfuls evenly on top of batter.
- With knife, cut through mixture a few times to marble.
- Bake as directed on brownie mix box or until toothpick inserted in center comes out almost clean.
- Cool completely, about 1 hour and cut into squares. Store in refrigerator. Serves 15.
Should the tablespoon of vanilla been a teaspoon? My cream cheese mix was soupy, and I knew it should have been thicker. I baked it anyway and am hoping the brownies solidify as they cool. I’ve added a peanut butter mixture into brownies many times and never had this problem. Oh, well.
Yes, it is correct. It thickens after cooking and cooling. However, feel free to reduce the amount if you think it’s too much.

I’ve made these cream cheese brownies for years…recipe used to be on the Betty Crocker box….and they are the greatest! Add nuts and you’re golden. The green touch is fun for St. Paddies chocoholics.
My daughter was born on St Patty’s day. I will make this for dessert to end our St Patty dinner!!!
