I love chocolate, I love cream cheese….chocolate cream cheese? Oh yes, I will! Philadelphia Cream cheese recently added Chocolate to its line of flavoured cream cheeses. I couldn’t wait to try it! Also, with Chocolate Philly you get the dairy goodness of Philly plus the deliciousness of pure milk chocolate – with half the sugar and calories (per 1 tbsp. serving) of other chocolate spreads.
I am not a huge breakfast person so my mind went straight to my favorite part of any meal….dessert. I made Chocolate Cream Cheese Blondies. Now if you MUST have a breakfast idea….just serve these with milk and a side of fruit and call it good. They are delicious squared and you MUST MAKE THEM RIGHT NOW! Sorry for yelling but they are that good. Trust me.
