I’m basically in denial that the holidays are right around the corner…it seems like just yesterday I was complaining about the heat and cooling myself off with a margarita by the pool.  But with Thanksgiving just next week (!!), that means we’re entering full-on baking mode.

And also?  Full-on baking mode around my house means “Oh, I forgot to tell you we’re having a lunch potluck tomorrow…do we have something “quick” I can take?”

Yep, these Marbled Cheesecake Brownies!  They don’t require much work…but that’s a secret you can keep to yourself.

One of the first holiday baking items I buy when they hit the shelves are the big bags of red and green M&Ms® Brand Chocolate Candies.  Use a few for baking, eat a few…use a few for baking, eat the rest. 😉

I love how customizable these brownies are.  They’d be perfect for any holiday by changing the color of the M&Ms® Brand Chocolate Candies you put on top.

Marbled Cheesecake Brownies
 
Serves: makes 32 brownies
Ingredients
  • 1 box (8 oz.) reduced fat cream cheese
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ⅛ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 package brownie mix (choose directions for the cake-style brownies)
  • 1 cup M&M’S® Brand Chocolate Candies
Method
  1. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese with the sugar. Add the egg, milk and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the brownie mix according to the package directions. Spoon ⅔ of the brownie batter into a parchment-lined 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Spoon the reserved cream cheese mixture over the brownie batter. Now scrape the remaining brownie batter over the cream cheese mixture. Swirl the tip of a knife through the batter to make a marbled effect. Press M&M’S® Brand Chocolate Candies into the batter.
  3. Bake for 45-50 minutes in a preheated, 350-degree oven until slightly moist in the center. Cool completely before cutting into 1½-inch squares.
