Good Morning, ya'll & welcome to the PARTY!!!  
Ever wondered what the filling of a cheese blintz would taste like with a chewy chocolate-y brownie?  Well here ya go!!  Recently, while dining at my grandparents retirement home, we were served the BEST cheese blintzes we have ever put in our mouth, so I headed into the kitchen to try to recreate them.  I admit, I did not nail it on my first try, so I went for it again & this time, it was perfect.  And so I thought, what 2 flavor combos have I been trying to put together for years?  Well, cheese & chocolate of course!!!  So this dish was born.

1 box brownie mix, prepared according to package directions
1/2 cup cottage cheese (small curd), room temperature & strained
1/2 cup (4oz) cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt

In a small bowl, mix together the cottage cheese, cream cheese, honey, lemon zest, vanilla extract & season with salt.  Set aside.  Meanwhile, prepare your brownies according to the package directions.  Spray an 8x8 baking dish & preheat oven , according to what your brownies mix calls for.  Pour brownie batter into baking dish, then top with blintz mixture.  Take a spatula and gently swirl in the blintz mixture into the brownie mix.  Place in oven and bake according to box directions, however I had to add an addition 10 mins of cooking time to mine.  (instead of 45 mins, mine baked for 55 mins).  So, you may need to increase your baking time, as well.

Makes about 12 small brownies
