Mint Cheesecake Swirl Brownies
Not only are these decadent brownies over the top amazing on their own but then you add in the mint cheesecake swirl and it puts it over the edge. You won't even BELIEVE how good these things are and the best part is that they're easy to make! They're the perfect treat year-round but I'm making them for St. Patrick's Day so I'm adding a little green food coloring. Everyone will go crazy for this recipe.

Brownies
  1. 1 stick (1/2 cup) salted butter
  2. 8 ounces semi sweet chocolate
  3. 1 1/4 cup sugar
  4. 3 large eggs
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  6. 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  7. 1/4 teaspoon salt
Mint Cheesecake Swirl
  1. 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  2. 1/4 cup sugar
  3. 1 egg yolk
  4. 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  5. 2-3 drops green food coloring
  6. 2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat melt the butter and chocolate. Make sure to stir constantly so that the chocolate doesn't burn
  3. Once melted turn off the heat and set the chocolate aside to cool until room temperature, about 10 minutes or so
  4. In a bowl whisk together the eggs, sugar, and vanilla until combined. Add in the melted chocolate and stir again
  5. To the mixture add in the flour and salt and gently fold them in until completely combined
  6. Line the bottom and sides of an 11 x 7 inch baking pan with aluminum foil and then spray with non stick cooking spray
  7. Add all of the brownie mixture except 1/4 cup, spread evenly, and set aside
  8. In another bowl with an electric mixer beat together the softened cream cheese, sugar, egg yolk, and peppermint extract until smooth
  9. Add in 2 drops of green food coloring and mix well. If you want it more green than a mint green you can keep adding 1 drop of the food coloring until your desired green. Or you can omit this step!
  10. Mix in the mini chocolate chips until combined
  11. Dollop spoonfuls of the cheesecake mixture to the top and then add the remaining 1/4 cup of the brownie mixture over that
  12. Using a knife run through the layers, creating a swirl pattern
  13. Put the brownies into the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Take them out and let them cool before serving
  14. There you have the most decadent brownies of all time. Enjoy!
