Marbled Cheesecake Brownies

I am responsible for bringing dessert to Christmas dinner this year. My boyfriend’s family loves cheesecake and I love anything chocolate. I decided to try to combine both of our favorites to help make this holiday that much more joyous.

Happy Holidays!

Marbled Cheesecake Brownies
3 Gals and a Kitchen

1 package brownie mix
3 egg whites
1 c water
1 c applesauce
1 package cream cheese
½ c sugar
1 c flour
½ tsp vanilla extract

Graham Cracker Crust
2 c graham cracker crumbs
½ c melted butter

Preheat oven to 350 and grease 13x9 baking pan with cooking spray. Pour the graham cracker crumbs into the baking pan and add melted butter. Mix well and press over the entire bottom of the pan. Bake in the oven for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix brownie mix, 2 egg whites, ½ c water, and applesauce until the mixture is smooth. Pour brownie mixture on top of the cooked graham cracker crust. Mix cream cheese, sugar, flour, ½ c water, and vanilla extract until well blended. Spoon cream cheese mixture over the brownie batter. Cut through the batter with a knife several times for a marble effect.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool completely before serving.

Serve with cool whip and cherries.
