If there’s anything better than brownies with a decadent cream cheese filling, topped with chocolate chips, I don’t think I want to know! The best part of this recipe is the base is your favorite brownie mix. Put that together and be prepared to take it to the next level (and be prepared that no one will believe you as they’re enjoying the brownies!)
4 ounces cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 box of your favorite brownie mix (I tend to use Ghirardelli Chocolate Supreme Brownie mix)
Water, oil, eggs per the mix instructions
3/4 cup chocolate chips (whatever is your favorite: milk chocolate, semi-sweet, or even dark all work)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 13×9 pan.
Beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until well blended. Set it aside.
Prepare the brownies as directed. Spread 3/4 of the mix into the pan. Using a tablespoon, spoon cream cheese filling evenly onto the batter. Spoon remaining brownie mix over the filling. Cut through mixture with a butter knife to make a marble design. Sprinkle with the chocolate chips.
Bake 33-37 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean that’s been inserted a couple inches from the edge.
If you have any left (you may not), store covered in the refrigerator.
