Ingredients

    Chewy Chocolatey Brownies

    • 1 cup melted butter
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 1 cup dark brown sugar
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 4 eggs, large
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup cocoa powder, special dark
    • 1 tablespoon instant espresso powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt

    Cheesecake swirl

    • 1 box Philadelphia cream cheese, sofened (8 oz block)
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 egg (room temp)
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    Directions

    Preheat oven to 350. Grease an 8x8 baking dish or line with parchment paper.
    In a small bowl, mix together all of the cheesecake swirl ingredients (cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract, egg). Mix well with a spatula until the batter is smooth. Set aside.

    In large bowl, mix together melted butter, oil, sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well, scraping the bottom and sides of the bowl as you go.
    Sift together the flour, salt, and dark cocoa powder. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, stirring carefully until just mixed. Be careful not to over-mix. Fold in 3/4 of the chocolate chunks.
    Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish, spreading evenly. Then top with final chocolate chunks. Pour the cheesecake batter over the brownie layer, distributing evenly across the pan. Using a knife or toothpick, swirl the two batters together.
    Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and place the pan onto cooling rack. Serve warm or refrigerated!
