Chunky Cheesecake Brownies


These are positively sinful. I don’t know how else to describe them. They’re probably so calorie-packed that they’re clogging my arteries as I type, but let me tell you, it would be worth it. They’re almost more fudgy than cake-like, which makes them melt-in-your-mouth delicious.

The directions seem complicated, but they’re not. Just read through the recipe a few times before making. I promise they’re easy to make. And I promise that you will love them.

Chunky Cheesecake Brownies

Yield: 16

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 8 or 9 inch square baking pan.
  2. Combine cream cheese with ¼ cup sugar and 1 egg in a mixing bowl; beat until smooth. Stir 1 cup chocolate chips into the cream cheese mixture. Set aside.
  3. Fill a saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Turn the heat off, and set a heatproof mixing bowl over the water. In the mixing bowl, combine butter with the remaining cup of chocolate chips; stir until just melted and blended together. Stir in the remaining ½ cup sugar and 2 eggs, then sift together flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into chocolate until evenly blended.
  4. Pour half of the batter into the prepared baking pan. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the chocolate layer. Top with remaining chocolate mixture (this doesn't need to completely cover the cream cheese layer). Using a knife, swirl the top chocolate layer into the cream cheese to make a marble pattern.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until top is crinkled and edges pull away from sides of the pan. Cool thoroughly. Cut into squares. Store in the refrigerator or freeze.
