raspberry cheesecake brownies

I'm not big on Valentine's Day, but I am a fan of themed desserts. While you could most certainly make this recipe whenever you wanted, I love the flavor combination of this delicious treat for this specific day.

And even better, this recipe is incredibly simple. Because I used a boxed brownie mix. Yes, you read that right - a boxed mix. You can judge me, but it's easy, saves time, and tastes delicious.

Ingredients:

Brownies:
Boxed brownie mix {... or your favorite brownie recipe}

Raspberry Cheesecake Filling:
1 8oz. package of cream cheese, room temperature
1/3 cup of raspberry jam {I used seedless}
1 large egg yolk
red food coloring {optional, I used 12 drops to achieve a bright pink color}

Directions:

1. Prepare the brownie mix according to the box - oven temperature and all.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together your cream cheese, raspberry jam, and egg yolk. Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature to prevent lumps in the mix!
3. Pour brownie mixture into a greased pan {I used a 13x9} and spread evenly. Then, pour raspberry cheesecake mixture on top. Marble these two together by cutting through with a butter knife.
4. Bake the brownies for 20-22 minutes.
5. Let these cool for about 15 minutes, cut, serve, and enjoy!
