Cream Cheese Brownies

My Grandma Travis makes THE BEST desserts.
I don't know where she gets her recipes.
She's magic...just like most Grandma's!
I know that I don't ask questions,
i'm usually too busy savoring the delicious-ness of her cooking!
This recipe is a good one, and very high in her rotation!
Serving size is usually EXTRA LARGE!
Cream Cheese Brownies
1 box german chocolate cake mix
(cake mix made as directed on box)
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 bag chocolate chips...(use the Ghiradelli brand)
Preheat oven to 325*

Make cake mix as directed on know,
eggs, oil and water.
Pour into greased jelly roll pan.
Next, combine cream cheese, egg and sugar.
Mix until smooth.
Place by small spoonfuls throughout cake mix.

Run a knife through the cake mix to make a swirl pattern.

Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes.

When they come out, sprinkle 1/2 bag of chocolate chips on top of warm cake.

1 tbsp butter
3 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
powdered sugar.
In a bowl, combine the milk and butter, and melt in the microwave.
Combine with vanilla and add powdered sugar.
Mix until it can drip off the spoon as a thick mixture.
(Don't you love Grandma's and their ability to just MAKE frosting...without a recipe?)

Drizzle white frosting over cake.
(My cake was a little too warm still, and it melted my frosting...
oh well!)


  1. I trust Grandma Travis's recipes 100%! She IS magic. I hope one day it will rub off on me!

  2. I'm so excited to have this at Mom's house tonight. Thanks for sharing.
