Sour Cream Marbled Brownies

I baked these brownies out of necessity.  I had a large tub of sour cream that I needed to use so why not add it to some brownies and see what comes out.  Well, what came out was pretty darn tasty and my family and friends were very happy for my little experiment.  These brownies are not your "crumby-cakey" style brownie.  Instead these sour cream brownies are very fudgy and rich. 

1 box of Brownie Mix made per box instructions
1 cup of  sour cream

For the Swirl:
1/2 cup sour cream
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbs of all purpose flour

Make the brownie mix with the 1 cup of sour cream and pour into a greased 9x13 pan.

Dollop the sour cream swirl over the brownie mixture.

Make swirls with a butter knife.

Bake according to brownie box instructions or until knife comes clean.  Allow to cool and then cut into squares.  Enjoy.

  1. Who knew??? They look wonderful and who doesn't like fudgy and rich?! =o)

  2. Hi Erin, I was just as surprised with how the sour cream and brownies worked together. My hubby and sister both said these were their favorite brownies. I guess I have no excuse to stock up on sour cream now. lol. : ) Thanks for stopping by my blog. Ramona

  3. Yum, they look and sound delicious!

  4. Awesome brownies! Bet the sour cream swirl gave a nice tang to contrast with the sweet chocolate.

  5. Leslie- Thanks for checking out the brownies on my site. I hope you try them and enjoy. : )

  6. Adriana- I think I got too excited with all the swirling and I swirled it too much because I muted the sour cream contrast. Next time I will just swirl it a little and the contrast will be more pronounced. Thanks for checking out the recipe. : )

  7. *Drools* I want one RIGHT NOW!! They look incredible! So moist and fudgy...

  8. Kimberly- LOL! "Drools"... That was funny. If I could I would send you one through the computer screen, but my family cleaned me out of them. Thanks for visiting and checking out the recipe. Hope you try it. : )

  9. Insanely simple! I need to try this recipe after I get off this stupid diet...

  10. Love how simple but delicious this recipe is! Yum!

  11. Yum! I like doctored up and improved box recipes.

  12. Trying these at my facility to use up brownie mix and sour cream we need to use before it expires. Can't wait to taste them!

  13. How cute is this idea! I absolutely love it! Thanks so much for sharing. I am your newest follower!

  14. Can't wait to try this recipe! Always wanted to try a boxed mix with sour cream but never sure if it was a substitute for the oil. Will follow directions on box and add the cup of sour cream. Sounds incredibly easy. Don't know why I was so skiddish!!
