  • In a double boiler, melt chocolate over low heat with 3 tablespoons of butter. Set aside to cool. In a medium bowl, mix together 2 of the eggs and sugar until thick. Stir in baking powder, salt and 1/2 cup of flour. Blend in cooled chocolate, nuts and vanilla extract. Set aside.

  • In a separate bowl, cream 2 tablespoons of butter with the cream cheese. Gradually stir in 1/4 cup of sugar. Blend in one egg,1 tablespoon of flour, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract.

  • Spread half of the chocolate batter in a pan. Layer on all of the cream cheese batter. Spoon on the remaining chocolate batter in spots. Zigzag through batter with a knife to create a marbling effect.

  • Bake 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven. Let cool on wire rack before cutting into squares.

My fiancé and his friends love this recipe for cream-cheese brownies. Every time they come over, they always ask for it! I don't put in the Walnuts, and I don't marble the brownies either: I put one layer of chocolate, then one layer of cream cheese topped off with the rest of the chocolate. I thne sprinkle chocolate chips over the top before baking. If you use dark chocolate, you will want to add a bit more sugar to the recipe or else it will not be as sweet. Enjoy! Read More

okay -- I am usually really good at sorting what the problem is when something goes wrong (with baking anyway). the taste of the brownies was good but the consistency was off... I even baked it longer and it did not cook very well. I have not had this problem before so I am stumped /: Read More

I used baking cocoa with oil instead of melted chocolate and only one egg instead of two in the chocolate batter.-- although the batter was really thick the end product was delicious! Read More

I substituted orange juice and orange zest in the brownie mix. I also used orange juice in the cream cheese layer instead of vanilla. They were delicious! Read More

The only change I made was to use unsweetened chocolate in place of the German chocolate. I still found the end result a bit too sweet for my tastes. Read More
