Cream Cheese Brownies

My cream cheese brownies have three distinct layers because chocolate tastes best when its acidity is unaltered. However, you can swirl through all of the layers with a knife, if preferred, to create a marbled effect.

You can also add food coloring to the cream cheese filling, one drop at a time, to customize your brownies. Feel free to experiment with different colors, and with adding more or less nuts, etc.
