Chocolate Fudge Cream Cheese Brownies - 52 Cookies, Brownies and Bar recipes

Pin It Now!

Oh Boy do I love a good chocolate brownie!

These are OVER THE TOP good with that inner layer of Sweet Cream Cheese frosting built into the bars.

there is a trick, be sure everything has cooled completely before trying to plate them.  The appearance in the photos has a bit too much crumbling as I cut them.  But i assure you as they cooled, the cream cheese became more firm and these were hand holdable as brownies.

I started these at 6 AM for a 9 AM Delivery to our children's church worship hour (Babysitting time?) so I had to rush the slicing which caused the cracking.  But delivered in the trunk of our car with below freezing temperatures, by the time we hot the church, the bars were firm.

Actually, I like the look.  Like a little chocolate bonus plopped on top of a frosted brownie.

But enough of the explanation for the photos, in fact these were WONDERFUL!  EXTRA Chocolate-y and incredibly easy.  The chocolate part is a store bought cake mix upgrade (easy peasy).  The Cream Cheese "Frosting" center is the icing on the top (in the middle).

LOVE this idea, will probably revisit sometime soon to get a better look, but as far as taste... NOTHING BETTER for a CHOCOHOLIC!
