These Marble Brownies ($4) are made for sharing. I try to finish them alone, and inevitably fail. They're huge, each slice at least five inches across. It's a fudgy brownie, perhaps too sweet, but brownies can handle that sort of thing. The cream cheese marbling is the best part; Grey Dog swirls it deep into the brownie, not just on the crust. It's all crunchy on top, but once you bite in you're rewarded with a rich, chocolatey mess. A glass of ice cold milk is the best pairing, but iced coffee also does the trick.
