This is my favorite recipe for brownies that I have used for many years. I add the cream cheese for extra flavor and texture.
1 cup butter softened not melted
2 cups white sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 level cup flour
1– 8 ounce package cream cheese
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Lightly grease and flour 9 X13 pan
Mix butter and sugar very well, add eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition. Turn mixer to low and add cocoa, flour and salt, mix until smooth, beat well until fluffy.
In a separate bowl mix cream cheese and sugar until smooth and well blended. Use a spoon to fold chocolate chips into cream cheese.
Spread basic chocolate batter into prepared pan.
Use a spoon to put cream cheese on batter in small amounts as seen in picture. Cream cheese mixture will be thick but I like to spread it out a little so that each area has some cream cheese.
Bake for approximately 25-30 minutes or until done in the middle.
Let cool and cut into squares. You can frost but they are delicious without frosting.
