Brownies with Cream Cheese Swirls

mmmmm these were yummo!! I love brownies and cream cheese! Here's my good old Saucepan brownie recipe that I have on here already, but I saw a cooking show where they added a cream cheese mixture to their brownies... so I tried it with mine.. and it was awesome!
Sauce Pan Brownies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line and 8x8 or 9x9 inch square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving about 3 inches hanging over each side for handles.

Melt in saucepan:
1 stick of butter
2 - 1 ounce squares of unsweetened chocolate

Remove from heat and add:
1 cup of sugar
Stir; then add:
2 eggs, one at a time, stir after adding each one

Then stir in:
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Then add:
3/4 cups flour
dash of salt

Set aside.

Prepare cream cheese mixture:
Whisk 4 ounces softened cream cheese with 2 Tablespoons softened butter until creamy and smooth.
Add 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1 egg, and 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour. Stir to combine.

Pour a little less than half the chocolate mixture in prepared baking pan. Spread to cover the bottom of the pan. Then alternatley spoon the cream cheese mixture and the rest of the chocolate mixture into the pan. Then with the tip of a knife run through batter to swirl. I go in one direction and then go through one more time in a different direction so you get a marble look.
Bake in oven for about 25 minutes or until brownies are set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached. Cool for about 30 minutes. Then using the parchment handles lift out of pan and cool completely. Then cut into squares and serve!! Yumm!
