I learned to bake and cook from my mother. I grew up in a family of 12 and we all had chores to do - mine was to help prepare the meals. The more I cooked, the more I enjoyed it. Now it's my favorite hobby.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1-1/2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • CREAM CHEESE MIXTURE:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the water, butter and chocolate; cook and stir over low heat until smooth. Cool.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Add eggs and sour cream; beat on low speed just until combined. Stir in chocolate mixture until smooth.
  3. In another bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla; set aside. Spread chocolate batter into a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Drop cream cheese mixture by tablespoonfuls over batter; cut through the batter with a knife to swirl. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.
  4. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.
