Sometimes my creativity machine gets dusty from disuse and needs a little jump-start.

I'm not the kind of person who is immensely imaginative in everything she does, far from it. I'm not artistic or crafty, but on occasion, if I'm properly inspired, I can be very clever.

Nestlé Toll House is launching a new product line that is not only premium but also highly versatile and capable of triggering lots of unique ideas. They've come up with Chocolate Baking Mix with Butterfinger Baking Bits, Brownies & More Chocolate Baking Mix with Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, Cookie Baking Mix with Butterfinger Baking Bits, and Cookie Baking Mix with Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, and each mix is extremely customizable and fun. Toll House has a knack for continually inspiring people to bake their best!

A miniature bag of chocolate morsels comes in the box!

These mixes (which I found at Target) contain no artificial flavors or colors and all offer up many possibilities. A full cup of morsels or baking bits unlocks all sorts of chocolate desserts, from cookie-crusted pies to brownie-bottomed cheesecakes. You can easily add your own special touch! If you have the proper capabilities, be sure to take advantage of the Ibotta offer here.

If you're on the hunt for a rich and delicious dessert that uses just a few straightforward ingredients, these brownies are what you seek. There is a POWERFUL chocolate flavor in the brownies, thanks to a boost from the chocolate chips in the batter. The cream cheese adds a delicious tang, and there's nothing quite like the creamy, luscious taste of caramel, especially when paired with chocolate. These brownies are foolproof and fantastic!

Caramel Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies
(printable recipe)
Serves 16
Ingredients: Directions:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch square pan or 9-inch pie pan and set aside.
In small bowl, beat together the cream cheese, egg, granulated sugar, and vanilla with electric mixer on low speed until smooth; set aside.
Prepare the brownies as instructed on the box, stirring together the mix, egg, oil, and water in a large bowl until blended. Stir in 2/3 cup of morsels as well.
Scrape brownie batter evenly into the prepared pan and smooth the top a bit.
Pour the cream cheese mixture on top of the brownie batter.
Drop spoonfuls of caramel sauce on top of the cream cheese.
Carefully swirl everything together using a knife or skewer.
Bake 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and sprinkle on the remaining 1/3 cup of morsels.
Bake an additional 20-30 minutes, or until a toothpick placed in the center comes out with a few crumbs attached.
Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting.
