Something chocolate and something cheesy

Just like the title, craving  for something chocolate and something easy cheesy 🙂

Found this brownies recipe on DELISH, completly “mouthwater”ed so then to the kitchen I went 🙂

Cream Cheese Layered Brownies


1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Cream Cheese Swirl
4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1 Tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan.

Make Swirl: Using electric mixer, beat cream cheese and 1 Tbsp butter in medium bowl until light and fluffy. Add 1/4 cup sugar and beat until well blended. Beat in egg, 1 Tbsp flour and 1/2 tsp vanilla. Set mixture aside.

Make Brownies: In a large saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup flour, salt, and baking powder.

Spread 2/3 of chocolate batter in prepared pan. Pour cream cheese mixture evenly over chocolate batter. Spoon remaining chocolate batter over top of cream cheese mixture. Using tip of knife, gently swirl through batter, forming marble design. Bake brownies until tester inserted into center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, about 30 minutes. Cool brownies in pan on rack. Cut into squares.
