  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine margarine, water and cocoa. Bring to a boil, and remove from heat. Combine the flour and 2 cups sugar; stir into the cocoa mixture until well blended, then stir in the eggs, sour cream, baking soda and salt. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese and 1/3 cup sugar until smooth. Spoon the cream cheese mixture over the batter in the pan. Swirl with a knife for a marbled effect. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until brownies start to pull away from the sides. Cool and cut into bars.

I'm rating my mom's version 5 stars. It differs in three ways: you use 1 1/2 oz unsweetened chocolate squares, which is then melted with the margarine and water. Secondly, you combine all the dr...

It's impossible to swirl the thick mixture of cream cheese and sugar. Maybe I didn't let it soften enough, but I did beat it for a very long time and it was still too stiff. Also, the recipe cal...

A family favorite for years! Yes, these are definitely more cake like than your traditional brownies (that's why they're not called brownies), and no, I don't think they're super chocolaty, but...

This recipe, although a lot more time consuming then some other dessert recipes is my absolute favorite. My mother in law has been making them for years. These are not brownies, to call them tha...

This was GREAT!! You MUST use an electric mixer for this recipe. You need to take the time to beat the creamcheese and sugar until it is smooth. Makes all the difference. It creates mushy,gooey ...

Who was daring enough to rate this recipe 1*? It surely is quite tangy, but what would you expect in a recipe containing sour cream and cream cheese. These bars are super moist, not that rich, a...

Brownies are my curse, I can never get them right. This recipe sounded interesting but didn't quite work either. I wouldn’t discard it though, because I think with some modifications it can be v...

I wasn't super impressed with these brownies. I thought they weren't chocolatey enough for our tastes. Don't get me wrong, they were good, but for us, i don't think i'll be making them again.

Super moist and the spots of chocolate with cream cheese are so yummy! Make sure you get the cream cheese soft enough, I put mine in the microwave for a little bit before I mixed it with the su...
