Ricotta cheese adds Italian flair to this fudgy treat. Brownie mix batter is layered with the cheese mixture then swirled for a pretty marbled look.

    Good, but not great. The ricotta didn't have much flavor and didn't add much to the brownies. They did, however, look nice and guests enjoyed them. I don't think I'll make these again when I have so many 5-star recipes to choose from.

    I really liked the brownies the next day after the flavors had a chance to meld in the fridge. I added a little more vanilla, a tiny bit of almond extract , and a handful of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips to the ricotta. I'll definitely make them again!
