Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Brownies

Who said making brownies from scratch had to be hard? These take just over 30 minutes to make and are a fail-proof dessert recipe.

I love making these ahead of time for dinner guests. They also make great gifts for friends and teachers!


Ingredients for Homemade Brownie Mix

  • Butter
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Eggs
  • Sugar
  • Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt

Cheesecake Swirls

  • Cream Cheese- Completely softened for a smooth and creamy consistency. Use high quality.
  • Egg
  • Chocolate Chips

Using Boxed Brownie Mix

To use a box mix, simply prepare the brownies according to package instructions.

Pour half of the batter in the bottom of the 9 x 9 baking dish, then add the cheesecake layer, followed by the rest of the brownie mix.

PRO TIP: Make sure to let the brownies cool completely prior to cutting them for nice clean cuts.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened, softened
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Combine cream cheese with ¼ cup of the sugar along with 1 egg in a mixing bowl and beat until relatively smooth. Stir in 1 cup of chocolate chips and set aside.
  • In a heatproof mixing bowl, add the ¼ cup butter and 1 cup chocolate chips. Add some water to a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • Turn the heat off and set the mixing bowl on top. Mix until melted together, then add 2 eggs and ½ cup sugar. Sift in the flour, baking powder, and salt and stir until evenly blended.
  • Lightly grease a 9 x 9 " baking pan and pour half of the melted chocolate mixture on the bottom and spread evenly.
  • Add the cream cheese mixture (it’s okay if it doesn’t coat the bottom layer completely- it won’t look perfect now but it will later!)
  • Top with remaining chocolate mixture. Swirl it around with a knife to make it look NEAT- it gives it a marble pattern.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, until the top is slightly crinkled and edges are pulled away from the pan. Let cool completely prior to cutting.

Notes
