Why Cream Cheese Brownies Recipe?

There was a show about growing up Superman, Lois Lane, and Clark Kent. We loved it! Mom and Dad taped it on Sunday night so we could watch it on Monday. While he was recording on ol’ VCR (which looks old now) we were making dessert and enjoying it. This was the first time I’ve “marbled” anything, and this satisfying swirl and swirl have sold me forever on this classic dessert.

What makes the swirl so beautiful? If the candy is rolled up, I have to eat it. I just know it’s going to be heaven and I can’t resist it. Have you tried cheesecake bars with raspberry and lemon flavor? Angels sing when they bite into one of those bars!
