Cream Cheese Brownies-EASY Secret Recipe

Updated on July 21, 2014

Aunt Barb's Secret

Every time our family has a gathering, party or holiday, Aunt Barb is sure to bring a tray of her delicious Cream Cheese Brownies. If you are watching calories, you cannot even get within two feet of these. The aroma will bring you in. The children fight over them. The men grab two at a time and the ladies always "split one" and sneak back for more.

After a little prying, Barb graciously gave up her secret recipe. Enjoy!!
