  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ White Cake Mix
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon chocolate extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk or water, plus 2 more tablespoons
  • 1 teaspoon Betty Crocker™ gel food color Neon Pink
  • 1 block (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1
    Gather your ingredients, and preheat oven to 325°F.
  • 2
    Line a 9x13-inch pan with non-stick tin foil or with parchment paper and spray with baking spray. Combine cake mix, melted butter, egg, chocolate extract, 2 tablespoons milk and pink food coloring in a mixing bowl. Stir until combined.
  • 3
    Reserve 1/2 cup of batter, then pour the rest into prepared pan.
  • 4
    Spread batter in a thin layer in bottom of pan. Stir the remaining 2 tablespoons milk into reserved batter, thinning it out.
  • 5
    Stir together cream cheese and sugar (or pulse in a food processor). Add egg and vanilla extract and stir until smooth. Pour cheesecake filling over the brownie batter.
  • 6
    Drizzle the reserved pink batter over cheesecake, then swirl using a fork or knife.
  • 7
    Bake uncovered for 18 minutes. Remove and cover pan with tin foil. Return to oven for 6-8 more minutes. The center will still jiggle slightly and will firm up as it cools.
  • 8
    Cool at room temperature for about an hour, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • 9
    When ready to serve, cut into 24 squares. Store any extras in refrigerator.

More About This Recipe

  • Add a punch of color to your dessert table with a plate full of these brightly colored pink blondies topped with swirls of creamy cheesecake. They look as sweet as they taste and would be perfect for a baby shower, Valentine's Day a girl's birthday party, or a breast cancer awareness event. The pink blondies are simple to make using a Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ Cake Mix. You can make a traditionally flavored blondie by using a white cake mix, but if you want to punch up the flavor a bit, you can use a strawberry cake mix instead.
