Mary Helen and Lori’s Cheesecake Brownies

Cheesecake Mixture

  • 1 (8 ounce package of cream cheese, softened)
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

Brownie Mixture

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup all purpose gluten free flour (we use King Arthur)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. In a mixing bowl combine cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 egg and beat until smooth.
  3. Stir in one cup white chocolate chips until well combined.  Set aside.
  4. On the stove, fill a saucepan with water and bring to a boil.  Turn off heat and set a heat proof mixing bowl over the water.  In the mixing bowl, combine butter and milk and chocolate chips;  stir until it is just melted and blended together.  Mix in the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and 2 eggs.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix your flour, baking powder, and salt;  stir into your chocolate mixture until evenly blended.
  6. Pour half of the brownie batter into a greased 9×9 baking pan.  Spread the cream cheese mixture over the chocolate layer.  Top with remaining chocolate mixtures.  Swirl the top chocolate layer into cream cheese with a butter knife to create a marble look.
  7. Bake at 350 for around 30 minutes, or until top is crinkled and center is cooked through.
  8. Let cool and enjoy!
