Makes 12 squares or 24 triangles

1 cup (240 g) of unsalted butter
4 oz (113 g) semi-sweet chocolate (or about ¾ cup of chocolate chips)
12 oz (339 g) bittersweet chocolate
1 cup (200 g) of sugar
1 ½ tsp (7.5 ml) vanilla extract
½ tsp (2.5 ml) instant coffee
3 eggs
1 cup (120 g) of flour
½ tsp (2.5 ml) salt
1 tsp (5 ml) baking soda
8 oz (226 g) cream cheese
¼ cup (25 g) powdered sugar
2 eggs
½ tsp (2.5 ml) vanilla
2 tbsp (15 g) flour

Preheat to 350F/176C.

Melt chocolate and butter in a pan on low. Add vanilla and instant coffee, stir to combine. Allow to cool slightly.

Add sugar, and eggs and beat together until smooth.

In a small bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt. Whisk to combine.

Add flour mixture to chocolate mixture (right in the pan) and whisk until smooth.

Transfer into a 13x 9 (32.5cm x 23cm) pan, lined with foil. Pour batter into pan (Reserving 1 cup of batter for the topping), and smooth with a spatula. Set aside.

Meanwhile, beat cream cheese and sugar until combined. Add egg, beat until mixed, add vanilla, beat again, and then add flour, beat until combined.

Pour cream cheese mixture over mixture until completely covered. Then with a spoon or mini ice cream scoop. Dollop brownie mixture every 1-2 inches (2-5cm) across the pan.

Then take a skewer or knife and run it through the dollops and cream cheese mixture horizontally and then vertically. And swirls will form.


Allow to cool and then place in the fridge for 1-2 hours or overnight is even better! They really firm up that way and become very fudgy and easy to cut. So if you can do overnight it’s worth the wait.

Cut into squares and then cut squares on the diagonal to form triangles.

    Do you think I should change temperature or baking time if I use 8X8 inch
    brownie pan?

  17. chaylitoots on May 20, 2016: (Reply)

  25. Eric Daux on May 20, 2016: (Reply)

    Beth I absolutely adore how you incorporated that you don’t need to add the
    coffee if you don’t drink it. On your last brownie video I asked if you
    needed it because I didn’t drink it. This really shows how much you care
    about your subscribers and their feedback!

  26. Liya Smiles on May 20, 2016: (Reply)

    Will definitely give it a try. It looks so darn good!!

  27. Richard Khusial on May 20, 2016: (Reply)

    Quick question, Do I spray the aluminum foil or the pan with non stick?

  28. Wanda Osborne on May 20, 2016: (Reply)

    thank you I’m. going to try..

  29. Notime on May 20, 2016: (Reply)

    Thanks Beth! I never knew how to make the cream cheese part. I may cheat
    and use a box brownie mix?

  30. FUNSTONTV Beauty on May 20, 2016: (Reply)

  31. Debbie Schneider on May 20, 2016: (Reply)

  32. Sandra C on May 20, 2016: (Reply)

    is there any way to fix the audio? i’m not sure if it’s just my computer,
    but the sound seems to only come thru one side/is uneven

  33. NiceCommentGuy on May 21, 2016: (Reply)

    Watching this at midnight, don’t do it

  34. Treat Factory on May 21, 2016: (Reply)

    my daughter she will love them. Thank you

  36. Amy Ellis on May 21, 2016: (Reply)

    Hi Beth! I love ALL your desserts. This one seems as fool proof as your
    other recipes. I continue to please with your snickerdoodles!
    I’m a HUGE smores fan. There seems to be some popularity to variations of
    desserts based around smores… do YOU have any? I’m sure that if you do it
    would immediately become my favorite.

  37. merilaine on May 21, 2016: (Reply)

    they look so tasty! I am new to baking so i don’t know much about it. but
    since I am also trying to eat more healthily, I was wondering if this
    recipe qualifies for that. or does the cream cheese make it too rich? I
    just want to find recipes for healthy, delicious treats.

  38. Pranesha Parkar on May 21, 2016: (Reply)

    I would eat that all by myself and wouldn’t even regret a thing ??

  39. Erika Erika on May 21, 2016: (Reply)

  41. tjantik anindya on May 21, 2016: (Reply)

    another great recipe. worth to try. thanks for sharing, Beth!

  42. doodles1331 on May 21, 2016: (Reply)

    Thanks for another great recipe – I love your videos ☺️ I was surprised by
    how you melted the butter and chocolate right in a saucepan though, since
    most other dessert videos I have seen in the past asks for a double boiler
    (or having a bowl sit on a saucepan of water) – are the chances of burning
    the chocolate high or is this just a myth?

  43. Kylie Roberts on May 21, 2016: (Reply)

    Hi Beth im a new subscriber. Love your style! I’m wondering if you have a
    recipe for sour cherry slice. I’ve bought one from a local market but I
    can’t work out how it’s made. It is like a chewy, cake like slice with sour
    cherries and slithered almonds on top. Absolutely divine!!!

  44. stephanie saunders on May 21, 2016: (Reply)

    looks incredible!

  45. sidney bilmen on May 21, 2016: (Reply)

    Hey, quick question, when you add the eggs into the brownie mixture in that
    is in the saucepan, doesn’t the eggs get cooked? I guess you have waited a
    bit for the mixture to cool right? Thank you!

  46. Jungkutie pabo on May 21, 2016: (Reply)

    They look so delicious and pretty! =)

  47. allmyjm on May 21, 2016: (Reply)

    Hi I was wondering if you can make a video on how to make awesome biscuits?
    And if you could tell me if Self- Rising flour is better than All Purpose.
    Thanks ?

  53. Afsah B on May 22, 2016: (Reply)
