Cheesecake Swirl Brownies Recipe


Cheesecake Swirl Brownies are a dream come true for cheesecake and brownie lovers. What could be more decadent? This recipe lives up to the expectations, while being a snap to make. This easy dessert takes advantage of a boxed brownie mix to start, and you can use just about any brand or flavor you like.

Kick these brownies up a notch by adding your favorite nuts. They are rich enough on their own, but feel free to also top them off with a fudgy frosting.

Cheesecake Swirl Brownies Recipe

For the Brownie Layer:
1 package (about 19 ounces) brownie mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs at room temperature, divided use

For the Cheesecake Layer:
1/4 cup water
8 ounces cream cheese (1 large block), at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips (see Notes)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with nonstick foil.

For the Brownie Layer:
Using a large dinner fork, stir together brownie mix, oil, 1 of the eggs, and water just until combined. Pour into prepared pan, and smooth into an even layer.

For the Cheesecake Layer:
In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, vanilla, remaining 1 egg, sugar, and flour until well-combined. Drop by tablespoons evenly on top of the brownie layer. Use a butter knife to swirl the cheesecake mix into the brownie layer. Sprinkle the top evenly with chocolate chips.

Bake about 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with fudgy crumbs. Cool completely to room temperature. Cut into bars and serve. (These are very rich, so you might want to cut them smaller.)

Yield: 24 to 36 servings, depending on cut size

• You may use standard milk chocolate chips or semi-sweet. Also, you may substitute standard-sized chips.
