How to make Double Chocolate Cream Cheese Brownies
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease and 8 x 8 pan with non-stick spray. For even more non-stick power line the pan with parchment paper! In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir together the dry ingredients to combine well. In a second bowl, whip together the softened cream cheese, vanilla, eggs, water and oil with a hand mixer.
Then, add liquid ingredients and chocolate chips to dry ingredients. Mix just until combined. Do not over stir or the brownies can end up with a tougher texture. Pour the batter into the greased baking dish and bake for 35-45 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted into the middle comes out almost clean. Let the brownies cool and then slice.
These brownies will be gone pretty quickly but in case they are not… Store them in an airtight container or cover with plastic wrap and leave at room temperature. Or, in an airtight container they can be frozen for up to 2 months. When ready to eat, let defrost at room temperature.
