Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies


Fudgy brownie, sweet creamy cheese, raspberry jam and fresh raspberries. Sounds like a perfect treat for your Valentine, and for you! These ultra rich brownies can be cut in small pieces so that there are enough to share. And although they're "fancy" they are easy to whip up. Make the loved ones in your life super happy with these yummy treats this weekend!

Start by making the cream cheese filling. Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, 1 egg, and sugar


on medium speed until smooth. In a separate large bowl, combine the brownie mix, oil, water, almond extract


and remaining 2 eggs. Stir well with a sturdy wooden spoon until all ingredients are incorporated.

Spread half of brownie batter into an 8 or 9" pan that is lined with greased foil. Spread cream cheese mixture over the top


and dollop with raspberry jam.


Spoon remaining brownie batter on top. Using a knife, swirl to create a marble texture.


Gently press raspberries in the batter.


Bake for about 45 minutes or until brownies are puffy and edges are set. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature. Refrigerate for a couple hours so that the brownies set completely. Then, use the foil to remove the brownies from the pan. Carefully peel back the foil and cut into squares.


Happy Valentine's Day!
