You know when you want a piece of chocolate cheesecake, but not a big giant chunk…well a really small square of these chocolate and cheesy brownies really does the trick. Easy to make, chocolate…what could be better?
- 6 squares semi-sweet chocolate
- ½ cup butter
- 3 eggs
- ¾ cup white sugar
- ½ cup all purpose flour
- ½ tsp. salt
- ¼ tsp. baking powder
- 1 cup softened cream cheese
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9” square baking pan.
In a heavy saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate and butter.
Remove saucepan from heat.
With a wooden spoon, beat in 2 eggs and ½ cup sugar until well blended.
Stir in flour, salt and baking soda.
Pour the batter into baking pan and set aside.
In a small bowl with a mixer at medium speed, beat the cream cheese, vanilla, 3 tablespoons sugar and 1 egg until smooth, occasionally scraping the bowl with a rubber spatula.
Spoon the cream cheese mixture over the batter in the baking pan. With spatula cut and twist through batter a few times to obtain a swirled effect. Bake brownies 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean.
Cool brownies in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
