    1 hr


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Beat cream cheese, 1/3 cup sugar, and 1 egg together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth.
  3. Mix water, cocoa powder, and butter together in a saucepan; heat over medium-low heat until melted, about 5 minutes.
  4. Combine flour, remaining 2 cups sugar, 2 eggs, sour cream, baking soda, vanilla extract, and salt in a large bowl. Beat chocolate mixture into flour mixture until batter is smooth; spread into the prepared baking dish. Spoon cream mixture over batter and run a knife through the cream cheese mixture to spread into a marbled pattern. Sprinkle butterscotch chips over top.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges have started to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 35 minutes.

  • Cook's Notes:
  • In the picture, the cream cheese is not as "swirly" as it could be, but you get the idea. I forgot to butter and flour the pan one time but had sprayed with Pam® - they came out fine but stuck a little more to the pan.

SOOOOOO DELICIOUS! This is more of a cake-like brownie, just just be aware. These little gems are so moist and full of flavor, as well as being perfectly chocolate-y. Hubby went CRAZY for these and he usually only gravitates towards plain ol' fudge-y brownies w/ no additions (though, he does LOVE butterscotch anything)! I will def be making these again and again~YUM, YUM, YUM!!!!!!!! Thanks for sharing. :)
