Chocolate Cheese Swirl Brownies

When I was little, this was a favourite family recipe that our mum would bake with us.

I always got the brownie bowl to mix, and my sister got the cream cheese filling bowl.

My family always gets compliments on these brownies.

They are amazing!

This is a Crisco recipe from the 90’s that has been adapted.



  • 1/3 cup of margarine
  • 1 package of cream cheese softened (250 g/8 oz)
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


  • 2/3 cup of margarine
  • 4 oz of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups of granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt


Preheat the oven to 350°F


Melt the butter and cream cheese, and cream together in a small bowl.

Add in the sugar and mix.

Beat in eggs, flour and vanilla.

Set aside the filling.


Melt the butter, and chocolate chips, and stir together.

This can be done in a saucepan on the stove, or in the microwave in a bowl. Stir in the sugar until combined.

Beat in the eggs and vanilla.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt.

Stir well until blended.

Spread 2/3 of the chocolate batter into a 9″ x 13″ floured, or lined (with parchment), baking tin.

Pour the cream cheese filling on top.

Add the 1/3 remaining brownie batter on top.

Using a knife, swirl the two mixtures, to create a marbled look.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
