While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

Sweet swirls of joy - February 10 is National Cream Cheese Brownie Day!

It's a true love story when rich fudgy brownies meet tangy cream cheese. You have the whole day to bliss out over this complete perfection, and marvel at how they ever existed without one another.

There's an art to making a dense, fudge-like brownie with a cheesecake-esque filling and swirling the two together in perfect harmony. The key? First, it's softening your cream cheese before beating it with the other ingredients. And then it's all about the art of the dollop.

Dollop your cream cheese mixture over the brownie batter in the pan, then dollop that already-dolloped palette with more brownie batter. Get artsy with your paring knife and swirl them in a super groovy design - and yes, we approve of hiding your initials somewhere in the batter, you Picasso you.

We know you'll be itching to smash your face into a giant square, but let these babies cool before you go all Mad Max on them. Then, enjoy the true magic that is fudge and cheesecake, all in one convenient (and make-your-eyes-roll-back-in-your-head) bite.
