Cream Cheese Brownies

Last week when Dad came over, he brought with him a recipe card that had come to him in the mail.  It was of these absolutely delicious looking cream cheese brownies.  Since we had a Super Bowl gathering here last night, I knew I wanted to make them.  Despite the many directions, it was actually rather easy to make.  And they were just as good as they looked!

Brownie Layer:
1 C chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
1/2 C unsalted butter
1 1/4 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs
1/2 C flour
1/4 tsp salt

Cream Cheese Layer:
8 oz. cream cheese
1/4 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
1/4 C chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 325*. Line a 9"x13" baking pan with foil and spray foil with non-stick spay.

Using a double boiler (basically have a pot with an inch of water and then a heat tolerant bowl resting on top of the boiling water without touching the water), melt chocolate chips and butter.  Remove from heat and stir in sugar and vanilla.

Mix in eggs one at a time; stir in flour and salt.

Set aside 1/4 C of mixture.

Pour mixture evely into pan.

Mix cream cheese in mixer until smooth, add sugar, vanilla, and egg.  Spread evenly over brownie layer. 

Add dollops of remaining brownie mixture over the cream cheese layer and swirl. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Cool in refrigerator for 1 hour before cutting.
