What does a foodie do when she has insomnia? Update her blog with her newest recipe of course! ;)

(Recipe from | photo from me!)


1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

[NOTES: I used strawberry cream cheese instead. YUMMERS!]


> Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch square baking pan.
> Combine cream cheese with 1/4 cup sugar and 1 egg in a mixing bowl; beat until smooth. Stir 1 cup chocolate chips into the cream cheese mixture. Set aside.
> Fill a saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Turn the heat off, and set a heatproof mixing bowl over the water.
> In the mixing bowl, combine butter with the remaining cup of chocolate chips; stir until just melted and blended together.
> Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and 2 eggs, then sift together flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into chocolate until evenly blended.
> Pour half of the batter into the prepared baking pan. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the chocolate layer.
> Top with remaining chocolate mixture. Using a knife, swirl the top chocolate layer into the cream cheese to make a marble pattern.
> Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes, or until top is crinkled and edges pull away from sides of the pan. Cool thoroughly. Cut into 12 to 16 squares. Store in the refrigerator or freeze.


Husband rating: A+
He really liked them esp the strawberry chocolate combo! SCORE!

Wifey rating: A
It was a little gooey for my tastes. Not sure if I needed to bake it longer or b/c of the chocolate chips. Maybe I’ll reduce the amt of chocolate chips that go into the cream cheese mixture next time. *shrugs*
