Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Brownies

Grab a glass a milk and meet me by the oven.  You will need the milk for these extra chocolaty super dense brownies.

There are two parts for these puppies.  For the cream cheese mixture, you will need

1 egg, beaten
1 block of cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup of caster sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips

In a mixer, combine the beaten egg and cream cheese together.  While that is mixing, add in the caster sugar and vanilla.  Once the cheese is light and fluffy, fold in the chocolate chips and set aside. Easy right?

For the brownie portion, you will need

4 ounces of bittersweet chocolate
1 stick of unsalted butter
3/4 cup of light brown sugar, packed
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup of all purpose flour

Now using a double boiler, melt down the chocolate and butter.  Once the two are melted, pull the bowl off the heat and set it to the side to cool a little.  This is important because you don't want to cook the eggs when you add them in.  But first, add in your brown sugar and stir until it is incorporated.

Now add in your eggs slooowly.  Seriously, don't rush this part.  Once the eggs are stirred in, fold in your flour and your mixture will start to thicken up instantly.

Now grab your greased baking pan.  For this recipe, you can use a smaller pan.  Mine is 9 x 6.

Add in 2/3 of your chocolate mixture.

Now dump in your cream cheese mixture, followed by the remaining chocolate mixture.

Grab a knife or toothpick and start swirling.

Bake the brownies at 325 degrees for about 35 minutes.  Let the brownies cool for a bit before cutting them into squares.  Oh!  And don't forget that glass of milk.  You will thank me later for it.
