Ingredients to Make Cream Cheese Brownies:
- 7 oz semisweet chocolate
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup espresso
- 2/3 cup butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 4 eggs
Cream Cheese Mixture:
- 3 tbsp orange juice
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 12 oz cream cheese, room temperature
- orange zest
- 1 egg
Step 1: Prepare the cream cheese
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a baking pan and line with parchment paper.
Using a hand mixer, whip cream cheese then add sugar, orange juice, and orange zest. Mix the egg until smooth and thick then set aside.
Step 2: Prepare the flour mixture
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt.
Step 3: Melt the chocolate
Combine and melt together the chocolate and butter in a double boiler or a medium bowl over a bain-marie. Stir occasionally until thick and smooth. Remove from heat and mix in the sugar.
Step 4: Add the eggs
Add the eggs one at a time and whisk until well-incorporated. Add 1/4 cup of espresso, 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mix well.
Step 5: Add the flour mixture
Slowly add your prepared flour mixture and mix until well combined.
Step 6: Pour the chocolate batter into the pan
Pour the chocolate batter into the prepared baking pan. Spread evenly until the parchment paper is completely covered. Reserve about ¾ cup of chocolate batter to use later.
Step 7: Pour the cream cheese
Pour the cream cheese on top of the chocolate batter and spread evenly.
Step 8: Create swirls
Scoop the remaining chocolate batter over the cream cheese and create swirls with a knife.
Step 9: Pop it in the oven
Pop your cream cheese brownies in the oven and bake for 20 to 35 minutes. Let the brownies cool. Cover and place it in the fridge for few hours or overnight.
Step 10: Slice, share, and enjoy!
