Brownies from a boxed mix are great in a pinch, but brownies made from scratch are even better, and making them is a fun activity for the whole family. These fudgy brownies are full of chocolate and cinnamon flavor with a hint of coffee and marbled cream cheese. This easy-to-follow recipe will take you from dessert zero to brownie hero in no time, and you just might use it to become the queen of the next PTA bake sale fundraiser.

We love using the SoftScrape™ 6 Speed Hand Mixer with Case to make these marbled brownies. The special SoftScrape™ blades are designed to minimize the need to manually scrape the bowl with a spatula as you mix.
