Introduction: Cheesecake Marble Swirl Brownies

Every year, for our numerous family reunions, I always make two pans of Cheesecake Marble Swirl Brownies with my sisters and mom. This recipe has been in our family for four generations, and is a running tradition. The reason we like making these is because they’re fast, and easy to make. This easy recipe comes in handy when you’re running late and need to make a snack.
