18-ounce packagecream cheese, softened
1/2cupchocolate chips or chunks of choice
1/4cup (1/2 stick)unsalted butter
1/2cupchocolate chips or chunks
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease or line a standard 8"x8" baking pan and set aside (I used a silicone pan and did not grease it).
Make the cheesecake layer
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a medium sized bowl if using a handheld mixer, mix together the cream cheese, sugar and egg. Set aside.
Make the brownie layer
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In a large microwave safe bowl, melt the butter and chocolate chips. Add the sugar and eggs and mix well. Slowly add the dry ingredients and fold until everything just comes together.
Assemble the bars
Transfer about half of the brownie layer on the bottom of your prepared pan. Add the cheesecake layer and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips or chunks. Add the rest of the brownie batter on top and swirl the top with a butter knife or toothpick.
Bake in your preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown and start to pull away from the pan. Do not over bake the bars. Allow to cool completely (put it in the refrigerator after they have reached room temperature) before serving.
Bars should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and will keep for about a week.Source: Allrecipes.com
