From the Book Ready For Dessert by David Lebovitz


6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces

4 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped

2/3 cup sugar

2 large eggs, at room temperature

1/2 cup flour

1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup chocolate chips

8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

1 large egg yolk

5 tablespoons sugar

1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Line a 9-inch or 8-inch square pan with foil, making sure it goes up all four sides. Use two sheets if necessary. Mist with non-stick spray or grease lightly.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

3. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and beat in the 2/3 cup sugar, then the eggs.

4. Mix in the flour, cocoa powder and salt, then the vanilla and chocolate chips. Spread evenly in the prepared pan.

5. In a separate bowl, beat together the cream cheese, the yolk, 5 tablespoons of sugar, and vanilla until smooth.

6. Distribute the cream cheese mixture in eight dollops across the top of the brownie mixture, then take a dull knife or spatula and swirl the cream cheese mixture with the chocolate batter.
