Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies

I made these while I was in Georgia visiting my bestie and man were they delicious! I've had cheesecake brownies before but never CHOCOLATE cheesecake brownies. So rich and so delicious. Definitely perfect for when a chocolate craving hits!

Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies
Recipe from Amanda's Cookin'

Brownie layer:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup baking cocoa
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Cheesecake layer:
2 oz unsweetened chocolate
2.5 oz semisweet chocolate
8 ounces very soft cream cheese
1 egg
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter or spray a 9x9 baking pan.

Melt the butter and using a wooden spoon, mix in the brown sugar and cocoa. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well. Add vanilla and mix to combine.

In another bowl, whisk together flour, salt and baking powder. Combine with butter mixture, and spread evenly in the baking dish. Set aside.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave. Place cream cheese, egg, sugar, vanilla and salt in a food processor and process until smooth. Add melted chocolate and process to combine.

Spread cheesecake mixture evenly over the brownie layer. Bake in preheated oven for about 40-45 minutes. Test with a toothpick – at most you should only get a few moist crumbs. Cool completely before cutting.

Store in a sealed container, preferably in the refrigerator. Excellent cold or at room temperature!

I imagine they would be worth the calories and the additional time working out just to have one piece!
