Top-ranked recipe named "Cream Cheese Brownies"

Share it:

These brownies need to be baked so a knife inserted comes out clean.

The brownies will be moist. Preparation time is approximately 30-45 minutes.

"These brownies are amazing and so simple! From the taste, you would think the recipe would call for mega ingredients. I read the reviews and made a couple adjustments. I used a whole bag of Ghirardelli Chocolate Baking Chips (semi-sweet), which was only about 1/2 cup more than the recipe called for and I used the entire block of Philadelphia Cream Cheese, which was only 2 more ounces than what was called for in the recipe. Again, they were awesome! Thanks for sharing this wonderful secret."

These turned out very well... on the fluffy side for a brownie, and the contrast was nice between the sweet cream cheese swirl and the brownie itself. The actual chocolate flavor wasn't very strong, but they were delicious nonetheless.

They turned out so soft and perfect. It was so easy to do and everyone loved them. Will definently make again. Also I used the whole 12oz bag of chocolates and full bar of cream cheese.

I am the one who posted this recipe and I did try adding the additional chocolate and cream cheese that Msljeff had suggested. I did not have good luck as it changed the consistency of the batters and they did not set up as I would like. The original recipe was given to me 31 years ago by a couple of Italian sisters. The recipe had been in their family for many years. I do think each person should go with their personal preference, but I continue to stay with the original recipe. Enjoy! lillyn25

Omg yum! Made this the first time and used honey for the first batter so good! The guy at my favorite sandwich shop loved the brownies too. Might just become a new addition to their desert line up! :). Thank you so much. Making a second batch now <3
