Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter or margarine softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Cheesecake Swirl

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350° F and lightly grease a 13 by 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Cream the butter and sugar; beat in eggs and vanilla. Add cocoa, then the flour and salt. Beat well then pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan.
  • Mix the cheesecake swirl ingredients until creamy and dollop mixture over brownie batter.
  • Carefully cut through the batter using a sharp knife to make swirls. Not too much because it will look messy.
  • Bake in the pre-heated oven for 25-30 minutes or until edges look crisp and center is barely set.

Notes

To make dark brownies use half dark and half unsweetened cocoa powder for the amount of cocoa called for. 1/4 cup is equivalent to 4 TBSP.
Bake brownies for no more than 25 minutes for fudgy brownies.
