  • Brownies:
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon red food coloring
  • 3/4 teaspoon white vinegar I used white balsamic because that's what I had!
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Cream Cheese Filling:
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8" square baking pan with cooking spray.

Prepare the Brownies:

  • Beat the eggs with a fork in a small bowl; Set aside. Place the melted butter in a large bowl. Whisk in each of the following ingredients separately, and in order: 1 cup sugar, vanilla, cocoa powder, salt, red food coloring, and vinegar. Whisk in the eggs until incorporated, then fold in the flour. Reserve 4 tablespoons of the brownie batter and set aside. Pour the rest into the prepared pan and spread evenly.

Prepare the Cream Cheese Filling:

  • Beat the cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla in a medium bowl until smooth.
  • Spoon the filling over the brownie batter in large dollops. Spoon the reserved brownie batter over the top of the cream cheese filling, and sprinkle the chocolate chips over that. Using a knife, swirl the cream cheese and brownie batter together in a circular motion to combine the layers. Bake on the center rack of your oven for 28-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting into squares. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
