Fudgy Cream Cheese Surprise Brownies

The Recipe:

2 sticks unsalted butter, each cut into thirds
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, broken into pieces
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, broken into pieces
4 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/3 c. sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

One 13x9x2-inch pan, buttered

Set the rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.

Combine cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla in a medium bowl, beat until smooth and set aside.

Combine the butter and chocolate in a heat proof bowl and microwave in intervals of 30 seconds or so, until melted (stir in between heatings).

Whisk eggs together in a large bowl, then whisk in the salt, sugars, and vanilla. Stir in the chocolate and butter mixture, then fold in the flour.

Pour batter into prepared pan and spread evenly, dollop large spoonfuls of the cream cheese mixture on top of the batter, draw a thin knife through the batter to swirl. Bake for about 45 minutes, until top has formed a shiny crust. Cool in pan, or enjoy hot from the oven.
