Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons reduced-calorie stick margarine, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 (8-ounce) block 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup "measures-like-sugar" calorie-free sweetener
  • 3 tablespoons 1% low-fat milk

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Beat sugar and margarine with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg, egg white, and vanilla; beat well. Gradually add flour and cocoa, beating well. Pour into an 8-inch square pan coated with cooking spray.

Beat cream cheese and sweetener with a mixer at high speed until smooth. Add milk; beat well. Pour cream cheese mixture over chocolate mixture; swirl together using the tip of a knife to create a marbled effect.

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Cut into squares.

Tip: Don't use reduced-calorie or fat-free tub margarine in this recipe because those products contain water, which will make the brownies gummy.
