4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, melted
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar, divided
3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Butter a 9x9” baking pan or line with parchment paper. With mixer, beat butter and 3/4 cup of the sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in 2 eggs, one at a time. Stir in the melted chocolate then slowly mix in 3/4 cup of flour and salt. Reserve 1/2 cup of the batter and spread the rest in the prepared pan.
- Mix cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 egg, vanilla and 1 tbsp flour until smooth. Spread over chocolate batter and, afterwards, dollop the reserve chocolate batter onto the cream cheese surface. Draw a knife through the dollops to create a swirled pattern. Bake 50 minutes or until done.
- Allow to cool 30 minutes prior to slicing into squares.
