Chocolate Cream Cheese Brownies feature layer upon layer of chocolate deliciousness. A must for big-time chocolate lovers!
These Chocolate Cream Cheese Brownies are one thing I just cannot resist. All of those chocolate layers? Come on. Plus, it has two of my absolute favorite things: chocolate and cream cheese.
If you’re a chocolate fan, then you’re likely already a fan of brownies. But if you’re a really big chocolate fan, then these brownies are just the thing to satisfy your major chocolate cravings.
The brownies themselves get a big dose of chocolate from plenty of cocoa powder. These are definitely cake-like brownies. And while I usually prefer fudgy brownies, the texture works perfectly with the other layers.
Sandwiched between two layers of brownies is a rich chocolate cheesecake mixture. It starts with a simple ganache that is then combined with cream cheese. Using semisweet chocolate in the filling means that you don’t need to add any sugar. It won’t be overly sweet, which works as a great complement to the brownies and the topping.
Speaking of the topping, it really couldn’t be simpler. When the brownies are fresh out of the oven, just sprinkle semisweet chocolate over the top of the brownies, wait a few minutes, and just spread the melted chocolate. Add some sprinkles if you like, and that’s it! That kind of topping can tend to break apart when you’re cutting the brownies, so I highly recommend you use a sharp knife to make clean cuts.
The most important part, of course, is how they taste. They are so, so good and so, so rich. With all of that big chocolate flavor, you may want to cut them a little smaller than normal. They’ll offer a giant dose of chocolate in a small bite. And if all of you chocolate lovers still crave another bite, then go right ahead!
