Why You’ll Love These Brownies

Rich and decadent. You can’t get more decadent than thick chewy brownies with rich cheesecake swirl. The texture is so perfect and delicious.

Easy to make. I know it looks like there are a lot of steps, but I promise this recipe is easy to make! The recipe is also all done by hand so no need for fancy mixers.

Best of two desserts. I know I sometimes can decide what type of dessert I want, so I love recipes that infuse two together! It’s the best of both worlds.

How to Make These Brownies

Preheat oven to 350F and line a 8×8 square baking pan with parchment paper. Lining the pan with parchment paper allows you to easily remove the brownies from the pan.

Brownie Batter

Chop the bakers chocolate and place in a microwave safe bowl. Melt in the microwave by stopping and stirring the chocolate in 20 second increments. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl combine melted butter and sugar and whisk by hand until smooth.

Add in the eggs and vanilla. Vigorously mix for a good 2-3 minutes. Doing this breaks down the eggs and gives the brownies that shinny crackle top.

Pour in the melted chocolate and whisk until mixture is well combined.

Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Using a rubber spatula mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined. Do not over mix. Fold in the chocolate chips. Set aside.

Cheesecake Batter

In a medium sized bowl add the softened cream cheese, egg yolk, white sugar, and vanilla extract. Stir together until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Assembling the Brownies

Pour three quarters of the brownie mixture into the lined pan and spread evenly.

Spoon dollops of the cheesecake mixture over top of the brownie batter. Spoon dollops of the reaming brownie mixture in between the cheesecake batter.

Next, take a butter knife and gently trace lines horizontally and then vertically to swirl the batters together.

How to Slice Brownies

To get perfect brownie slices use a sharp knife and wipe it clean after each cut. You can make 16 brownies or 9 large brownies.

Storing The Brownies

Since these brownies have cheesecake in them they should be stored in the fridge in an airtight container. Brownies stay good for 3 days in the fridge. Before serving bring them to room temperature.
