St. Paddy’s Day Brownies

by Laura

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.

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.
