Fudge Brownies With Cream Cheese White Chocolate Topping

Dec 21, 2020 | Food, Sweets

This is a re-post:  We are day 14 into The 24 Days Before Christmas and Instead of doing a cookie tray, I thought I would put together a list of links to all of the sweet recipe posts I’ve done.  If you are like me and my family, we love having something sweet after dinner especially for the holidays.  I’ve referred back to this Fudge Brownie With Cream Cheese White Chocolate Topping recipe many times as I love the richness of this brownie with the mixture of cream cheese and white chocolate.  I’ve also included updated links to more dessert recipes for you to try if you like!  Want a direct link to all of my “sweets” just click on the link HERE!  You can also purchase my digital Sit, Stay, Eat 3 cookbook with more of sweet recipes.  A portion of the proceeds go to Joey’s P.A.W., a non-profit raising money for animals in need of wheelchairs and prosthetics.
Happy Monday everyone!!!!  My little family of four had a wonderful relaxing weekend.  The presents are bought, wrapped, and under the tree.  The trees were lit, the fireplace and candles were burning, and I made these delicious fudge brownies with a cream cheese white chocolate topping.  I took a shortcut and made a box of Duncan Hines Fudge Brownies but I turned it up a notch by adding a mixture of cream cheese, white chocolate, and walnuts.

I used an 8 x 8 pan, mixed up the brownies and while they were baking in the oven, I blended with a mixer cream cheese, white chocolate morsels, vanilla and sugar together.  As the brownies were cooking, I sprinkled a handful of chopped walnuts on top and then used a knife to blend them into the batter.  This recipe is super sweet.  Layer on a decorative plate for the holidays or wrap them up in candy bags for a sweet dessert to send off with your guests to take home and enjoy later.  These would also be great Christmas morning with a cup of coffee while everyone is opening up gifts!

  • Bowls
  • Mixer
  • Spoons
  • 8 x 8 baking pan


  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate morsels I used Guiaradelli
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 handful chopped walnuts
  • 1 box Duncan Hines Fudge Brownies follow instructions for baking


  • Mix batter according to instructions on box and bake accordingly
  • While brownies are baking, melt white chocolate in microwave until creamy
  • Mix cream cheese, white chocolate, sugar, vanilla together and pour over brownie batter
  • With a knife, swirl cream cheese mixture into batter
  • Bake in oven. Half way through, add walnuts on top and blend into batter with a knife
  • Serve warm


The walnuts add a nutty flavor to the batter.  Leave some on top so they get toasted.
I chose to make my brownie batter using the instructions for a fudge brownie instead of a cake brownie.
