These sour cream swirl brownies will make any day good or bad; better.
I can’t remember if it was a Saturday or Sunday but, I remember that it was snowing hard outside and I did not want to go anywhere. I was trying to think what we could make to eat for the day and maybe the next day too. My mom and I were sitting at the kitchen table watching the snow fall outside and also watching Food Network’s “The Kitchen” on TV. I think it was a Valentine’s themed episode?? I’m not sure… Although there were probably a few recipes I would’ve liked to try; Sunny Anderson’s recipe was RIGHT. ON. TIME!!! First, it was a chocolate recipe. I love chocolate. Second, it was BROWNIES!!!! Who doesn’t love Brownies?!?! Third, it started with a mix ANNND, I had a mix in my pantry. BOOM. I was in!…. Oh, and Sunny added in some goodies too. Bring it on Michigan Snow Storm #259 of 2018! (haha)……. I’m ready.
It doesn’t matter if it’s snowing outside or not. Stock up on your favorite brownie mix (I’ll show you my favorite in a bit) and a few other items; so when the craving strikes you will be ready for this belly full of greatness. It’s quick and easy to whip up in a moments notice. This is one you will be thanking me for a long time. And that’s just for the sour cream mixture that goes into the brownies. I want to eat it just like ice cream. Just wait, you’ll see.
Sunny’s Sour Cream Swirl Brownies
One 18-ounce box brownie mix (plus the required eggs, oil, & water)
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon sugar
2 drops vanilla extract
Spray a 9×9 baking pan with pan spray or shortening. Line the baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper if desired. This will allow easy removal of the brownies after baking. Pre-heat oven to the temperature stated on the box. Prepare the brownie batter according to the package directions, then transfer to a prepared 9×9 square baking dish. Do not bake.
In a small bowl , stir together the sour cream, brown sugar, cinnamon sugar and vanilla. Drop the sour cream mixture randomly around the top of brownie batter. Using a toothpick, skewer or, butter knife drag the sour cream mixture randomly through the brownie batter to make streaks and swirls throughout.
Bake according to the package directions. Cool completely if you can wait. Remove from pan if desired. Slice into serving size portions.
This brownie mix is my most favorite. I keep at least 2 boxes on hand all the time.
You can prepare you pan this way with foil and pan spray; or just with pan spray.
Mix together the eggs, oil and, sugar in a large bowl.
Stir in the brownie mix and chocolate syrup to the mix; if using.
Pour brownie mixture into the prepared pan. Hold on!! Do not bake yet!
In a small bowl, mix together sour cream, brown sugar, cinnamon sugar &, vanilla.
This sour cream mixture is heaven. I will now desire this on top on everything.
Dollop the sour cream mixture randomly all over the brownie batter using a soup or cereal spoon.
Use a butter knife to make swirls through the brownie batter.
Bake the brownie batter for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean when tested.
Let brownies cool completely and remove from pan.
Slice into desired serving size and enjoy.
