Chocolate Chip Swirl Brownies

Half fudge brownie, half velvety cream cream, and topped with chocolate chips, these brownies are a easy fun treat! 

Full time 45 minutes
Makes 16 brownies

You will need:

For Brownie Base 
2 eggs
1 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 cup sifted all purpose flour
1/2 cup vegetable oil 
1/3 cup baking powdered coco
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder

For Cream Cheese Swirl
1 egg
4 oz cream cheese, softened 
3 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla

In addition
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Let us begin:

Preheat oven to 350' and line a 8 x 8 basking pan with aluminum foil. Lightly spray aluminum foil with cooking spray and set aside.

In a large bowl whisk together sugar, flour, coco powder, salt, and baking powder.

Add in eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla. Stir well to create a nice even mixture. Set aside for a moment.

In a small bowl cream the cream cheese until smooth and lump free.

Add in egg, sugar, and vanilla. Stir well to create a nice even mixture. Set aside for a moment.

Working with the brownie base first, pour 1/2-2/3 into your prepared pan and even out with a spatula.

Spoon in large drops of cream cheese mixture onto the top of brownie base. Use roughly 3/4. Do not fully cover it and do not worry if you leave a trail while working, that will make it better.

Spoon remaining brownie base over the top, again you will not fully cover the previous layer. The more it swirls together the better the out come.

Spoon remaining cream chesse mixture over the top, same as before do not fully cover.

Spread chocolate chips across the top.

Bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until center feels set and an inserted tooth pick 1 1/2" from edge comes out clean.

Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes in pan.

Pull gently up on aluminum foil to remove brownies from pan.

Carefully remove aluminum foil.

Slice into 16 even squares.

Serve and Cheers!
