Spiderweb Brownies

You can't go wrong with brownies and cheesecake! Put it all in a round pan and pipe the cheesecake on top in the shape of a spiderweb and now you have a delicious and fun Halloween treat! Enjoy!

Spiderweb Brownies
Recipe idea from King Arthur Flour


1/2 cup butter, softened
2 oz unsweetened chocolate
2/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Cream Cheese Mixture:

4 oz cream cheese, softened
2 TBSP sugar
1 TBSP flour
1 egg yolk
1/2 tsp orange extract

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 8" round cake pan or springform pan.

Melt butter and chocolate together in double boiler. Remove from heat and mix in sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients just until combined. Pour into prepared pan.

Beat together cream cheese, sugar, and flour. Add in yolk and extract. Put mixture into piping bag and pipe circles about 1" apart starting from the center. Once circles are drawn, take a knife and run it through the circles. Trace the lines with remaining cream cheese mixture.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until brownies pull away from the side of the pan.

I'm not much of a Halloween person but this is really cute and easy. Now that I'm thinking about it, how about doing it for a birthday writing the honoree's name with the cream cheese. OK, now I'm thinking of all kinds of things. Thx for getting me started....
