Marbled Cream Cheese Brownie Squares Recipe

I love brownies and I love them made in all kinds of different ways! I will eat chocolate brownies, cream cheese brownies and even blondies when the opportunity presents itself. When I am looking for a decadent and fancy brownie to serve at one of my family gatherings, I love to make this recipe for marbled cream cheese brownie squares.

Marbled Cream Cheese Brownie Squares Recipe

3/4 cup butter, softened
4 squares unsweetened chocolate
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
8 oz. block cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 10" square baking dish or brownie pan.

In a large mixing bowl beat together the softened cream cheese and the granulated sugar until smooth and creamy. Beat in the large egg and blend in the 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour. Set aside.

In a large saucepan over low heat melt the butter and the chocolate squares until creamy. Remove from heat and let cool for 3 minutes. Beat in the granulated sugar and the large eggs until well blended. Stir in the milk and then blend in the 1 cup of all-purpose flour.

Spread half of the brownie batter into the base of your prepared baking dish. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the top, running a knife through it to give it that marbled look. Pour the remaining chocolate brownie over the top, run knife through the batter & layers again to give it that marbled look.

Place baking dish into the preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 30 to 33 minutes or until done. Remove and let cool on a wire rack before cutting them into squares. Store squares in an airtight container.

Optional: You can place a sliced almond or a half of a pecan on top of each square for an elegant presentation.
