Cinnamon Swirl Brownies

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

I woke up this morning with chocolate on my mind! I made this cute Valentine’s day cards with a picture of my adorable baby girl. I wanted to hand them out to friends and family with something sweet. Cinnamon swirled brownies it is!!

I half chose this recipe because I had s box of brownie mix in my pantry, and little time to do much else. The swirl on top of these brownies is made from sour cream mixture. Which by the way is so good!!!! I wanted to make some extra to dip my fruit in.

You will place spoonfuls of the sour cream mixture on top of your brownie batter, and swirl in the mixture with a skewer or knife. I then topped the entire thing with cinnamon sugar. Above is a picture before it was baked.

Give this recipe a try next time you are wanting a box of brownies!!! It’s a great way to change it up.
