Caramel Cheesecake Swirled Brownies #chocolateparty

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes


  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup SCHARFFEN BERGER Natural Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1 8 oz block of cream cheese, at room temp.
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 12 caramels
  • 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temp.
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a 8X8 baking pan with foil and spray generously with cooking spray.
  2. In a double broiler or a large bowl that can sit on top of a saucepan melt 1 stick of butter and the chocolate chips. (You want the bowl to sit on top of the saucepan- the saucepan should have a little bit of water on low-medium heat. You do not want to bowl to touch the water) Cook until just melted. Using a dishtowel take the bowl off of the saucepan and whisk in the cocoa powder. Set aside for a few minutes to cool.
  3. While cooling, in the bowl of an electric mixer whip the cream cheese for 2 minutes. Add in egg, vanilla and sugar. Mix until fully combined 2 minutes. Set aside.
  4. In a small saucepan on medium-low cook caramels and heavy creamy until smooth. Set aside.
  5. In the chocolate mixture whisk in 1 1/4 cup sugar. Add eggs one at a time then vanilla and salt. Fold flour in, do not over mix. Pour 2/3 into a prepared pan. Scoop cheesecake mixture on top, and then scoop caramel on top. Drop spoonfuls of remaining brownie batter on top and use a knife to swirl it all together.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out with no wet batter. Let cool completely on a wire rack before slicing in.

I have a question when you add sugar you list 1- 1/4 cup, which do you mix this in(step 3 or 5)? you also have 1/3 cup listed.

Hi Cindy,

I am sorry that was a bit confusing the way I had it worded. I have changed it. The 1 1/4 cup of sugar gets mixed into the brownie batter and the 1/3 goes into the cheesecake batter :)

Thanks for letting me know! :)
