Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies

My most favorite dessert believe it or not, is cheesecake. I could eat the whole cake myself….well, not really, but sometimes I feel like I could. My second favorite dessert is anything to do with chocolate, so when you put the two together, wow……I am in heaven!!! This had a fluffy brownie bottom, cheesecake swirl, and chocolate topping, so yes, it was very rich, but very delicious!!


10 tbsp butter
3 oz ( 1/2 cup) milk chocolate chips
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
For the Cream Cheese Swirl:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1 large egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
2-3 Hershey bars


Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8×8 baking pan. In small saucepan over medium low heat, melt and mix together butter and chocolate chips. Allow to cool slightly. In a medium bowl, beat eggs and vanilla with the sugar. Add in melted chocolate and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, salt, and cocoa. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients being careful not to over-mix. Pour batter into greased pan.
For the cream cheese swirl, add cream cheese, sugar, salt, egg, and vanilla to a bowl. Pour on top of  brownie batter and using a knife, swirl the cream cheese into the brownie. Bake in a preheated oven for 60-70 minutes, or until brownie is set. Place Hershey bars on top of brownies and  place back into oven for an additional few minutes, until melted. *Turn oven off and place brownies back in to melt chocolate.
