~ Marbled Cream Cheese Brownies ~
6 oz bittersweet chocolate, coarsely broken
3 oz unsweetened chocolate, coarsely broken
16 oz cream cheese, softened
2 cups sugar, divided
4 large eggs, room temperature
1 T vanilla extract, divided
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 t salt
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Line a 13x9 inch baking pan with aluminum foil so that the foil
extends 2 inches beyond the sides of the pan. Lightly butter
the bottom and sides of the foil. Heat the chocolates in a
microwave oven on high for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring halfway
through cooking, until melted. Let stand at room temperature
for 10 minutes. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and
1/3 cup of the sugar on medium speed until smooth. Beat in
one of the eggs and 1 teaspoon of the vanilla extract. In
another large bowl, beat the butter and remaining 1 2/3 cups
of sugar until combined. One at a time, add the remaining
3 eggs, beating well after each addition. Blend in the
melted chocolate and the remaining 2 teaspoons of vanilla
extract. On low speed, mix in the flour and salt, just until
combined. Scrape all but 1 cup of the chocolate batter into
the prepared pan and smooth the top with a rubber spatula.
Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the batter.
Spoon the reserved chocolate batter over the cream cheese
mixture. Pull a table knife through the layers of the
batter in a zigzag fashion to create a marbleized effect.
Bake for 35 - 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted
in the center comes out slightly moist. Cool in the pan.
Then, using the two ends of the foil as handles, lift out
of the pan. Cut into bars.
