Kahlua Brownies

A few weeks ago, when it was still getting dark early in the evening, I was quietly sitting at home alone. The little lady was in bed, the husband was at work still, and I was curled up on the couch reading. All of a sudden, my brother burst in the house laden with grocery bags. “I brought stuff to make white russians!”, he proclaimed! “But we need brownies! You should make some brownies!”.

I agreed this was a remarkably awesome idea, but alas, the pantry was all out of brownie mix. My brother got very sad, but I decided it was high time I make some homemade brownies. Out came the iPhone, and within minutes I found the perfect brownie recipe to go with our white Russians – Kahula Brownies!!

These brownies were easy to make. Working with my brother, we had them in the oven in no time flat. The hardest part was waiting for them to come out of the oven and cool down enough to eat one! They were a great brownie, too. These are nice and cakey, and the kahlua definitely sneaks through. My favorite part was the cream cheese layer in the middle! YUM!

Kahlua Cream Cheese Brownies (
2 (3 oz.) pkg. of cream cheese softened
3 eggs
1 1/2 Cups sugar
1 1/4 cups flour
6 Tablespoons Butter
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 teaspoon Baking powder
1/4-teaspoon salt
3/4 cup Kahlua
1/4 cup Vodka


Cream together cream cheese, 1 egg, 1/4-cup sugar, Vodka, 2 Tablespoons flour and 2 Tablespoons soft butter, set a side.
In a separate bowl sift remaining flour, sugar, cocoa, salt, baking powder.
Stir in remaining butter and 1/2 cup Kahlua, add 1 egg at a time and mix well.
Pour half cocoa mixture in a buttered and lightly floured 9″ baking pan.
Add cream cheese mixture and cut lightly with a knife, then add remaining cocoa mixture.
Bake at 325 degrees for about 30 minutes. When cool brush with 1/4 cup of remaining Kahlua.

    Kahlua and cream cheese sound like an amazing combination for brownies! I was craving a brownie today, but the bakery was sold out. Now I really want one! So, will you go back to boxed brownies now??
