I made these to take to a work Christmas lunch, and everyone loved them. The perfect mix of creaminess and sweet. Really loved the dark chocolate in them. Thanks for sharing!! Made for Zaar 123 Tag game.
I made these for a meeting, and they were a big hit. They're rich...you don't need big squares, but they are heavenly. The cream cheese and chocolate balance each other so neither is overpowering. I love them...
Oh Yum! These brownies are so good...ambrosia. The brownies are moist, tender, rich, chocolatey, silky, creamy and oh so delicious. Thank you so much for sharing this incredible treat. I will try to share but I need help, I can't seem to stop eating them.
