Marbled Brownies

Kitchen Tested
  • Yield 20 to 25 pieces

The cream cheese in these low-fat brownies gives them a lighter chocolate flavor.


6 tablespoons margarine, softened
1 cup sugar, divided
1 large egg
2 large egg whites, divided
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 (8-ounce) package fat-free cream cheese, softened


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.  Coat a 9-inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and dust with flour.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat margarine and 3/4 cup sugar until creamy.  Add egg and 1 egg white, blending well.
  3. In a measuring cup, combine flour and cocoa.  Gradually add flour mixture to margarine mixture.  Add vanilla.
  4. In another mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and remaining sugar until creamy.  Add remaining egg white and continue to beat until well mixed.  Pour two-thirds of the chocolate batter into bottom of baking pan.  Spread cream cheese batter over, and then spread with remaining chocolate batter.  Swirl a table knife through batter, making a marbleized effect.  Bake 30 minutes, or until top of brownie springs back when touched.  Let cool 20 minutes on a wire rack before cutting to give the cream cheese time to set.
