Cheesecake Brownies from Table for Seven

A large majority of recipes that are in my possession come from my mom. This one included. She gave this to me many years ago and it remains a family favorite to this day.

Ingredients Needed:

  • Chocolate chips
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Flour + Baking soda
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Vanilla
  • Cream cheese

Can I Use My Own Brownie Recipe?

  • Yes. If desired, you can use your own favorite brownie recipe or a boxed version. Make sure whichever you choose, is for a 9 x 13 baking pan. This way, it will match up with the cream cheese addition.

Recipe Notes:

  • Store any leftover brownies in the refrigerator.
  • When adding the cream cheese, be sure just to swirl it into the batter…not completely mix.
