Ready in 45 minutes
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."
Preheat oven to 350?
You will be making two mixtures for this recipe. The first batter will be with chocolate and the second will be with cream cheese.
Melt chocolate and butter on low heat, set aside to cool.
Combine eggs, sugar and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder and salt. Mix till smooth and add cooled chocolate and butter.
With mixer, mix cream cheese , sugar, eggs, flour and vanilla in seperate bowl.
You now have two seperate mixtures. Pour half of chocolate batter into 9 x 13 greased pan.
Pour all of cream cheese mixture evenly over first chocolate layer. Pour remaining chocolate batter evenly over cream cheese batter. With a knife, slice through all layers of batter several times to marbilize brownie mix.
Bake at 350? for 35-40 minutes.

lyndsaybedgood-livingston 11m agoThese are ok ... Everyone who has raving reviews tweaked the original recipe somehow. When I bake something the very first time I always follow the recipe then I make my substitutions. On that note, following the recipe exactly when I layered the batters, the brownie batter sunk to the bottom. It didn't marble like it should have, it all mixed together. The final result had some marbling but not like the pictures. It's a lot dryer than other brownies I have made. Definitely won't be making this again. You want to make delicious brownies, make the Reese peanut butter cup ones. Those are moist and delicious!
Moonshine10 1y agobest brownies ever!
halenicole 1y agoYumm! I increased the cream cheese to 8 ounces and the chocolate to 12 ounces. Also increased the cook time to 45 min. Very good.

ees55 1y agoThese 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.
reno127 1y agoThey 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.
elizabeth_sca 1y agoI added some more chocolate and are so creamy, I'll do them again with the recipe as is. Any way they're delicious
lillyn25 1y agoI 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
