I swirled the cheese and chocolate batters with a knife, thinking that the chocolate would ooze up where the cheese batter was "cut" and swirled. But the cheese batter stayed mostly on top. I think it would work better if one did a bit of folding in with a rubber spatula. My family found these too sweet, even though I cut the sugar to 2 1/2 cups instead of 3 1/4. The contrasting flavors were good and I will try again, maybe using 1 3/4 cup sugar.

I changed this recipe quite a bit so my rating is based on my changes. I am very particular about my brownies: must use real unsweetened chocolate, fudgey but not too sweet. I used 1 1/2c sugar for the brownies and 1/4c for the cream cheese. I only added 1 cup of flour (self rising, as it was all I had) to prevent it overpowering the chocolate. I also substituted 1t. Mint extract for part of the vanilla. I also turned down the oven to 325f and baked for 20 minutes as my oven runs hot. They are not as gooey as I would like and I may reduce the number of eggs if I make this again.
