Oh my gosh! I so planned to bring you a different recipe today. Then, I made these.
Do you like ooey-gooey, rich, sweet desserts?
Pomegranate Cream Cheese Brownies. They may just be one of my new favorite treats.
It only took one bite before I started to moan and groan. They were simply the moistest brownies I’ve ever made.
Look at that moist center. It’s yummy-licious.
And this time, the first words he said were:
- Diet busting.
Don’t be surprised if they call your name.
They are seriously that good. And ssssoooo easy. You won’t believe it.
You want to know the secret? I’ll tell you. The secret ingredient is cream cheese and pomegranate jelly. All that great pomegranate flavor, none of those pesky seeds or pulling apart the pomgranate!
That’s it. It really is! It’s in the jelly. (And the cream cheese. Who doesn’t love cream cheese?)
They are moist, sweet and very gooey (p.s. the longer they sit, the gooey-er and sweeter they get!). The good news is, a small square (2×2) will be enough to satisfy your sweet tooth. A two-bite treat that is to faint over.
Wear your fat pants. You might need them. 🙂
