Goat Cheese Swirl Brownies

Yes, I am posting twice today.

I know this is a little overkill, but I made more brownies, yes, also overkill, but I am very happy with these decisions.

There has been a lot going on lately which is why I was unable to post yesterday, and I probably will be missing for a while in the next few days.  Thus, I am posting twice today, while I can.  First, camp is taking over my life.  I have been so busy, but I have been having a really great time and I am actually really happy! This summer has gone great so far! Also, cute food shows up at camp too!

Anna made these for snack on Pirate Day!

Second, my computer is basically in hospice care and could die at any moment.  So, I purchased a new computer yesterday (yikes there goes all my money) and I now have to get it set up.  This means I will be computer-less for a day.  I am totally freaked out about this, but I supposed I'll find a way to survive.

And third, I've been keeping up with my half-marathon training, seeing all my friends, and of course keeping up on this blog! Plus, it's Brownie Marathon! And, so I have yet another brownie recipe to share.  I decided to make something adorable for the little picnic on the beach I am having tonight with my friends.  I found a recipe for Goat Cheese Swirled Brownies and I thought it would be a great way to try something new and stick with my brownie theme! Plus, I decided to make my brownies 4th of July themed! Check 'em out :)

Goat Cheese Swirled Brownies (adapted from My Fancy Pantry)

Your favorite brownie recipe (I made Ghiradelli brownies)
1 cup dark chocolate chips
8 oz goat cheese
2 tbsp 1/3 less fat cream cheese
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp flour
1 egg
red and blue food color
1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease and line a 13 by 9 inch pan with parchment paper.

2. Make the brownies according to the box and mix in the dark chocolate chips. Pour half the batter into the prepared pan and set the rest off to the side.

3. Beat the goat cheese, cream cheese, honey, flour, and egg until smooth and creamy.  Divide the mixture into three small bowls.  Color one with blue, one with red, and leave the other alone.  Drop spoonfuls of the goat cheese mixtures into the pan with the brownie batter. Spoon the rest of the batter on top and then, using a toothpick or knife, swirl the goat cheese into the batter.  Bake for about 30 minutes. Let cool.

Enjoy :)
