Yummy Cheesecake Brownies

I really need something chocolatey this week.  I was trying to figure out how I could make a yummy dessert and use up what I had in my fridge and pantry.

Brownie mix? Check!  Eggs?  Check!  
Fat-free sour cream?  Oh Ya!

Cheesecake Brownies
adapted from allrecipes

Brownie mix
*Prepare according to package*
**To make it healthier, use no sugar added apple sauce instead of oil**

For the topping:
9 ounces softened cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg


Prepare the brownie mix as directed by manufacturer. Preheat oven to temperature indicated on box. Grease a 9x13 inch pan.

Spread the brownie batter evenly into the prepared pan. Using an electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese, egg and sugar until smooth. Dollop the cream cheese mixture on top of the brownie batter. Swirl together using a knife or skewer.

Bake according to manufacturer's instructions. Brownies will be done when a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool in the pan, then cut into bars and serve.
