1/1 Photo of Sinful Cheesecake Brownies
minnie chef's Note:
This is my favorite brownie recipe, period. Super-chocolatey brownie swirled with twice the cream cheese of other marbled brownies. Chocolate chips are optional, but give the brownie more texture. I use the Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate bar and Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips. From David Lebovitz (check his website for more fantastic recipes!)

Units: US | Metric
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
- 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate or 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1Line a 9-inch (23cm) square pan with foil, making sure it goes up all four sides. Use two sheets if necessary. Mist with non-stick spray or grease lightly.
- 2Preheat oven to 350 degrees (180C).
- 3In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and beat in the 2/3 cup (130g) sugar, then the eggs.
- 4Mix in the flour, cocoa powder and salt, then the vanilla and chocolate chips. Spread evenly in the prepared pan.
- 5In a separate bowl, beat together the cream cheese, the yolk, 5 tablespoons (75g) of sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
- 6Distribute the cream cheese mixture in eight dollops across the top of the brownie mixture, then take a dull knife or spatula and swirl the cream cheese mixture with the chocolate batter.
- 7Bake for 35 minutes, or until the batter in the center of the pan feels just set.
- 8Let cool, then lift out the foil and peel it away. Cut the brownies into squares.
- 9Storage: These will keep in an airtight container for a couple of days. They also freeze well, too.
