How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Line bottom of 13x9-inch baking pan with parchment paper, extending paper over pan edges. Set aside.

I just made this today and it turned out amazing! I substituted 12 TBSP cacao powder for the chocolate for added health benefit. The flavor was divine. The layers came out fantastic! Definitely a keeper!!

A cafe I worked at made these and they sold like crazy! We changed a couple things: Put a tablespoon of cocoa powder in the brownie mixture for extra chocolatey-ness. Double the cream cheese topping and put on top of the brownie mixture and swirl in in. And top with a sprinkle of chocolate chips. PS: They are really good right out of the freezer...mmmm
