Cream Cheese Brownies

Mmm! I totally loved these! Sometimes I think homemade brownies don't turn out as good as a box mix, but these were delicious! This recipe is from a little booklet I have from Baker's Baking Chocolate. The brownie part was dense and rich, just how I love them! And the cream cheese layer was a nice touch.

Cream Cheese Brownies

4 squares unsweetened baking chocolate
3/4 C butter
2 1/2 C sugar
5 eggs
1 1/4 C flour
1 package cream cheese (8 oz)

Preheat oven to 350. Line a 13x9 pan with foil, leaving ends over the edge and grease.

Microwave chocolate and butter in a large bowl for 2 minutes, or until butter is melted. Stir until well blended. Add 2 cups of the sugar, mix well. Add 4 of the eggs and mix again. Stir in 1 cup of flour. Spread into prepared pan.

Beat cream cheese, the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar, the last egg and 1/4 C flour. Spoon over brownie mixture. Cut through cream cheese with a knife for a marble effect.

Bake 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with fudgy crumbs. Cool on a wire rack. Using edges of foil, life brownies out of pan and cut. Store leftovers in the fridge.
