Total Time

Prep: 25 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling


12-16 servings

This recipe features three kinds of chocolate--baking cocoa, hot fudge topping and chocolate chips! A small piece is all you need to round out a holiday dinner.


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup hot fudge ice cream topping
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • Milk chocolate or striped chocolate kisses, optional


  1. In a small bowl, cream butter and 1/2 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Combine the flour, cocoa and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Press into a greased 8-in. square baking dish; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and remaining sugar until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla; beat on low speed just until combined. Remove 1 cup to a small bowl; beat in fudge topping. Spread 1 cup over crust; spread with remaining cream cheese mixture.
  3. Stir melted chips into remaining fudge mixture; drop by teaspoonfuls over cream cheese layer. Cut through batter with a knife to swirl.
  4. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Garnish with kisses if desired. Store in the refrigerator.
