THE BEST PAN FOR BROWNIES

We find that a metal (aluminum) 8″x8″ pan produces the best brownies. Moist on the inside and crunchy on the top.

Simply grease the pan then pour in the chocolate batter.

Warning: Try and resist eating all the batter! It’s a challenge!

Pour into an 8" x 8" lightly greased pan.

The cheesecake portion of the brownies comes together in a stand mixer or in a bowl with a hand mixer.

Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature.

HOW TO MARBLE THE CHEESECAKE

Once the chocolate has been poured into the pan, it’s time to add in the cheesecake.

Use a knife to swirl the cheesecake into the chocolate.

As it bakes, it will marble perfectly.
