Mohaffe's Mooshey Brownies

I have to admit, I have never made homemade brownies before in my life. I was always too intimidated to try it.  And making them from the box was so easy. I am so glad that my viewers asked for a brownie recipe.  It encouraged me to try something new.  I took them to a family dinner and asked everyone to be honest on what they thought of the brownies.  Everyone loved them and thought they were delicious. Some even said that they are the best brownies they have ever tasted!  I'd say we have a winner people!

I got this recipe from a friend of the family. I'm not sure where she got the name from.  I loved these brownies. I have to say the recipe looked a little complex at first but it was super easy to make.  There are a few steps to it, but don't let it intimidate you. They are actually really simple. I didn't add chocolate chips or nuts to mine. I don't think I will ever make brownies from a box again! I am sold on homemade brownies. The flavor is 10 times better than even the best boxed ones out there.

Mohaffe's Mooshey Brownies
2 C. Sugar
1 1/4 C. Flour
1/2 C. Cocoa
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp Baking Powder
set aside.

In another bowl combine:

2 cubes melted Butter
1 tsp. Vanilla
4 whipped eggs

Fold liquid mixture into the dry mixture until combined.  Mixture will be lumpy. (at this point you can also add in a bag of chocolate chips or nuts if you want.)  Pour into a 9 x 13 greased pan.

1 (8 oz) pkg Cream Cheese
1/2 c. Powdered Sugar
2 Tbsp. milk

Dot on top of brownie mixture, then swirl with knife.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 Minutes .

Tip: the best way to see if the brownies are done is to insert a toothpick into the center of the brownies. If it comes out clean. They are done.

Tip: to cut brownies, the best way is to use a cheap plastic knife. It gives it a nice smooth cut without making it crumble.
