Fudgy Cream Cheese Brownies

There is just something about chocolate and Mondays. I eat it as a reward for all of the hard work I have coming at me in the week ahead.  Nah….Who am I kidding? The truth is I eat it because it’s Monday. (I’ll eat it because its Tuesday tomorrow too.)

This recipe is perfect for anyone that needs a rich and fudgy treat. Plus it’s extremely easy and who doesn’t like a brownie?

Fudgy Cream Cheese Brownies

Ingredients

Chocolate Batter
  • 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1⁄4 tsp. salt
  • 4 semi-sweet chocolate baking squares
  • 3 tbsps. butter
  • 2   large eggs
  • 3⁄4 cup sugar
  • tsp. vanilla
Cream Cheese Batter
  • 1 regular size package Philadelphia® cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tbsps. butter
  • tsp. vanilla
  • 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
Topping (after bake)
  • 4 Hershey® Milk Chocolate bars broken in pieces (optional for the recipe, but you can always stash them for a secret chocolate binge) ijs
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350°

For The Chocolate Batter

  • Beat eggs until foamy then very slowly add sugar while continue beating at medium speed of electric mixer until thick and sunny yellow color, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Add vanilla and chocolate mixture and mix well.
  • Add flour slowly and mix well.

For The Cream Cheese Batter

  • Beat cream cheese with butter, vanilla, sugar and egg until well blended.
  • Layer approx. 1/2 of the chocolate batter in a greased and floured, or baking sprayed 8-inch square pan.
  • Drop Cream Cheese Batter in large dollops and spread carefully over your chocolate batter (No need to perfection here, plan on it looking a little messy. (it tastes the same J)
  • Then top with dollops of remaining chocolate batter.
  • Now you have options; you may swirl with knife through your layers to marble or you can just lightly spread over cream cheese batter and not aim for perfection.
  • Bake at (350ºF) for 30 to 35 minutes or until brownies pull away from the sides of your pan.

Last Step: Topping (and it can be optional if you like the marbled tops of your brownies)

  • Sprinkle broken milk chocolate bars over the top of brownies after they come out of the oven. Wait 5 minutes and then spread.
  • Cool on wire rack
  • Now eat or hide ALL of them before anybody else gets home. :)

Enjoy!
