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.

These chocolate chip brownies are so easy to make! They're loaded with chocolate chips and swirls of creamy cheesecake. The homemade brownie mix is the best!

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

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