Fudge Brownies With Cream Cheese White Chocolate Topping

Dec 21, 2020 | Food, Sweets

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!

Look at this adorable gnome my friend got me for Christmas.  I think Maggie wants the brownie for a snack and that for a chew toy later!

  • 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.
