Dark Chocolate Brownies with Clementine Cream Cheese Swirl
I’m not even joking when I tell you these Dark Chocolate Brownies with Clementine Cream Cheese Swirl will ROCK - YOUR - WORLD. The recipe is a mash-up of two recipes from The Brown Eyed Baker.
The Number One Brownie Recipe from her Top 10 Favorite Brownies List, and the Cream Cheese Filling from her Cream Cheese Brownie Recipe. The only change I made was to add the zest of two clementines to the cream cheese batter.
Seriously. Do yourself a favour and bake these bad boys STAT.
