Swirled Cheesecake Brownies


It's about time I give you a dessert don't you think?  I made these brownies yesterday fully intending to bring them to my in-laws today for their anniversary, but like many times before the husband and little man FOUND THEM after dinner and well, the rest is history.

There were some left, but I didn't feel like dragging half a pan an hour and a half away.....story of my life.

But let me tell you....these are divine.  Do I dare say some of the best brownies I've ever made?  I'll let you be the judge.

I was tempted to add some fresh strawberries to this batter, because you know, I have them coming out of my ears {5 batches of homemade jam down!} but I'm glad I didn't,  Just leave well enough alone, right?
But it would taste good with fresh strawberries swirled into this batter.
I can't make up my mind.


Make these!

Don't delay!

Tell me to stop shouting!

Enough.  Here you go.
