Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with heavy foil, extending foil over edges of the pan. Butter the foil; set pan aside.

  • In a heavy large saucepan, heat 1 cup butter and the chocolates over low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Set aside to cool slightly. In a medium bowl, stir together 4 eggs, the 3/4 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar and 2 teaspoon vanilla. Stir into warm chocolate mixture; cool to room temperature.

  • In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Fold flour mixture into chocolate mixture. Spread the batter in the prepared pan.

  • In a mixing bowl, beat together cream cheese, the remaining 1/4 cup sugar, 1 egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla until smooth. Dollop mixture over brownie batter in pan. Swirl with the tip of a table knife.

  • Bake in a 350° oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until brownies appear shiny, begin to crack on top and appear set. (Do not overbake.) Cool completely in pan on a wire rack; then cut into bars. (For cleaner cuts, you can chill brownies in pan in refrigerator for several hours. Use foil to lift chilled brownies out of pan before cutting.)
