Chocolate Cream Cheese Brownies

These are delicious! Very rich, cut small.

Brownie layer:
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup baking cocoa
3 eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla
Heaping cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking powder

Mix butter and sugar well. Add sugar, cocoa, mix well. Add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla. Stop mixer. Add flour, salt and baking powder. Mix slowly until well mixed. Pour into lined pan and set aside.

Cheesecake layer:
3 oz unsweetened chocolate
4 oz semisweet chocolate
8 ounces very soft cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
2 eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt

Melt chocolate. Mix room temperature cream cheese and sour cream. Make sure there are no lumps. Add eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt. Add melted chocolate. Scrape bowl often so there are no lumps. Spread over brownie layer. It did not cover completely - it went almost to the edges.

Preheat oven to 350 F (330 if convection). Cover 9x13 pan with foil and spray.

Bake 40-45 minutes. Cool completely. Remove brownies with foil to cutting board. Cut off edges and save for another day. Cut small pieces. Arrange on platter, cover with saran wrap. Refrigerate.
