Semi-Homemade: Cream Cheese Brownies

Yesterday, it seemed the entire family had a sweet tooth.  Because we are moving, I am trying to use up as much of our pantry as I can.  I had a box of fudge brownies (you know the most awesome one with the fudge packet) and had some cream cheese in my freezer.  Cream cheese brownies sounded so good.  I would have added walnuts but I have a few that don't love nuts...darn it!  The brownies were so good and totally cured our sweet tooth.

Cream Cheese Brownies

1 package Fudge Brownies
2 eggs
2 tbsp water
1/2 melted butter
1 cup walnuts or nut of your choice (optional)
1-8 oz package cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat over to 350 degrees.  In a 8x8 baking pan, butter bottom and sides.  Prepare brownie mix with eggs, water and melted butter.  In a separate bowl, prepare cream cheese, sugar and vanilla.  Stir until smooth.   Pour half of the brownie mix in the pan.  Spread the mix until the bottom of the pan is completely covered.  Pour the cream cheese mix on top covering the brownie mix.  Pour the remainder of the brownie mix on top of the cream cheese. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes.  Allow brownies to cool before cutting.

Eat and enjoy!
