Cream cheese brownies

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

4 eggs

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.

  1. I remember making something similar to this with with my best-friend and it tasted so good. But I’m guessing this is going to taste better with the added frosting.

  2. I’ve said it before and I will say it again – no-one but no-one bakes better than a good American! And I’m English and I live in France. So take that very seriously 😀
