Ms Sarah was supposed to have a sleepover at Grammie’s, but Grumpie was sick
Along came plan “b”.
A tea party with just us girls, down to the paper lace doilies!
What to serve at our tea party? We decided brownies, but plain old brownies simply wouldn’t do – they weren’t “special” enough! So, a creative spin on them (because I had a box or two of brownie mix in my stockpile and it was aging…) – Marble Brownies!
Start with a box of regular brownie mix…and make it just like the package says — complete to putting it into a greased 9×13 pan.
Now you need:
1 package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
Beat the cream cheese until creamy. Add sugar, egg, and vanilla: mix well. Crop by tablespoons over the brownie batter.
This is where you let the munchkin help! Let them do the “important” job of swirling the two colors into a fun pattern.
Artistic, isn’t it?
Bake at 35-40 minutes until cream cheese mixture is lightly browned.Cool completely before cutting (if you can wait that long…)Cut into appropriate sizes for a four year old…and pop onto a paper lace doily.
Now let the tea party begin!
