Chocolate Cream Cheese Brownies

I will admit to a horrible weakness for a brownie. Rich, dense and full of chocolate flavor, they are almost impossible to resist.

Yes! I will spend the rest of my life dedicated to this worthwhile project!

Now this brownie is a true contender. With lots of butter and cream cheese you can’t go wrong!
