4 (1 ounce) squares
German sweet chocolate
1 (3 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
This was a fantastic brownie recipe! I didn't have any German Chocolate Squares and used melted tollhouse chocolate chips instead and it turned out fine. They weren't too sweet and the cream cheese flavor mixed with the brownie was just delectable! They disappeared in my house in one night! A keeper!!!
These brownies were not very good. I like the idea of the cream cheese topping. But, I didn't care for the brownie base. The batter was very liquidy and then real fudgy after baking. I used 2/3 cup chocolate chips (4oz)to replace the baking chocolate, which is basically the same. But, I like a more cake like homemade brownie. Possibly using cocoa and oil like another reviewer it may have gotten more cake like. I had to take them out of the oven before the cheesecake topping got to browned. But, the brownie part seemed undercooked unless that was supposed to be the texture? Only about 3 brownies got eaten from the pan, which is not normal in my home. I am going to stick to the Mmmm Mmmm Brownies I found on this site. I can always modify them.
These are amazing... Totally amazing. The key is using the right pan. I tried an 8x8 glass pan and failed 3 times, they were either burned or not cooked in the center. Finally i turned to a 8x8 nonstick and voilla. Perfection. Make sure to greease and flour the pan. I added a bit more cream cheese (about half of a 250 g package). Bake at 350 for 37 minutes and then turn off the oven and leave them in for 10 or 15 more minutes. This insures they are cooked through while making sure the sides don't burn. Fantastic, thanks a bunch for sharing.
I have had alot of "flops" in my journey to be a better baker. But, after trying this recipe my confidence is renewed! These are just the best brownies ever! I only had 2 ounces of chocolate so I had to substitute the other 2 ounces with 6 tablespoons of baking cocoa powder and 3 tablespoons of oil, I also baked it for 5 min. less than the required time. But besides those minor changes I followed the directions exactly, and they came out great! I encourage anyone who reads this to go ahead and make it for yourself. If you love brownies and cheesecake you got to try this one! Thanks for the recipe
I bake these brownies when I want to impress someone because these look more sophisticated than regular brownies. I also like how these are not too thick or too sweet. Like many people who tried this recipe, I increased the amount of cream cheese to 4oz. Instead of saving half the chocolate batter, I saved only 2 to 3 tbsp of chocolate batter to spoon onto the cream cheese layer. I get better marble look this way.
These brownies are delicious. I used milk chocolate chips as a substitute for the sweet chocolate baking squares and microwaved them with the butter for 30 seconds to melt them....fast and easy. This is a very good recipe!
I brought these brownies to a party where there were several other desserts including brownies. These were gone first. Delicious. I followed the suggestion of another reviewer and made a bit extra of the cream cheese mixture. Other than that I followed the exact recipe. I baked them in a 9 x 9 pan so baked them for 25 minutes, turned off the oven and baked for another 5. Perfect.
Easy to follow instructions.
I really enjoyed this recipe...a new twist. I used 8oz cream cheese for a 9x13 pan which was a perfect amount. Other reviewers mention that it's more cake-like. I still think it's good. Maybe the cook who submitted it baked at a high altitude where cakes & brownies turn out flat.
