Cheesecake Marble Brownies

This cheesecake marble brownie recipe is just a DREAM! Homemade brownie batter topped with cheesecake, is so epic. In this recipe, there is a marble swirl; but if you wanted to do a double layer with brownie and do a full cheesecake layer, that would absolutely be delicious as well.

I absolutely love prepping this head, making prior to bring to a party (or just to save for myself as dessert after dinner!) Such a special treat.

Steps to make these marble brownies

Step 1

Take out your cream cheese to get to room temperature. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2

Make your cheesecake. First, in a stand mixer or hand mixer (or just whisked by hand). Second, mix together softened cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract and 1 egg until mixed throughout and there are no lumps. Then, set aside.

Step 3

Next, make your brownie mixture. In a bowl, add your cubed cold butter, and add in your sugar. Then, melt in the microwave in segments until melted throughout.

Step 4

After that, once melted and hot, add in your chopped chocolate and mix until melted and mixed together.

Step 5

Next, add in your eggs, egg yolk and vanilla extract, whisk until combined.

Step 6

Toss in your dry ingredients of cocoa powder, espresso/coffee powder and flour with a pinch of salt. Whisk until fully combined. Next, keep whisking until there are no lumps and everything is really smooth together.

Step 7

Line a 9×9 pan with parchment on all sides. Pour in your brownie mixture, smooth out to make sure it’s evenly in the pan.

Step 8

If you want a full cheesecake layer on top of your brownie mixture, you can do a full cheesecake layer and save aside about 1/4th cup brownie mixture.

Step 9

From here, do a full cheesecake layer, and swirl a layer with a few dollops of the reserved brownie mixture on top to get a layer of cheesecake, and then a chocolate swirl on top for a stronger cheesecake bite!

Step 10

If looking for the marble look, take a few tablespoons and add a few dollops of cheesecake batter around the brownie top. Take a toothpick or knife and create swirls throughout the batter.

Step 11

Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. To sum up, you’ll know it’s done when you insert a toothpick and it comes out clean, without any batter on it. Cool the brownies and slice into your desired size squares and serve!
