A little warmth for your cold day


BRRRR!! Today I woke up to snow--ick. And it wasn't the kind that flurried a bit and then melted away. No siree. It stayed. My dad even made me help him shovel the sidewalks. (Downside of being as old as I am and STILL living at home.) So this afternoon my mom made something warm to brighten our day--Best Ever Cream Cheese Brownies. (That's the upside of living at home!)

So here's the recipe to add some warmth to your cold day. If you didn't wake up to snow today, you will soon! *Except for those of you who are SMART and live in non-snowing states.*

Cream Cheese Brownies

2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
dash of salt
1/3 cup cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup melted butter

Topping:
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
8 oz cream cheese

Mix brownies and pour in a well greased 9 x 13 pan. Mix topping and and pour on. Run a knife through it give a marble effect. Top with semi-sweet chocolate chips and bake for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Yum.

get out of town and take a bus, these look amazingly delicious.

OK, snow? brrrrrrr. wanna do bridals in the snow? i'm up for anything. you'll prob. need some sort of hand warmer for your hands and face to get away from the red drippy look. you know i'm just an amateur right? but still happy and red punch to take them, in fact, ecstatic.

Thanks for the recipe!!! I was looking for this one. I am so glad that our snow came and melted...but then again living in an apartment someone else has to shovel.

These ARE to die for -- if you were wondering, but I can't take all of the credit. :)
I got them from Rochelle Williams --off of her blog.
Sorry about the snow. That happens sometimes in Idaho.:)
