Chocolate Orange Cream Cheese Brownies

They aren't local, but they sure are good. Don't make these

Chocolate Orange Cream Cheese Brownies

325 F, about 30 min
Line 8x8” pan with foil

Brownie:

10 T butter
3/4 c plus 2 T cocoa
1 1/4 c sugar
1/4 t salt

Mix above ingredients in bowl and set in a skillet of barely simmering water until the butter is melted and it’s hot enough you wouldn’t want to keep your finger in it…

Remove from heat, cool to near room temp and add:

½ t vanilla
2 eggs one at a time
½ c flour
Beat 40 strokes

Cream cheese mix:

3 oz cream cheese room temp
2 T butter room temp

Beat until light then gradually add until light and fluffy:

¼ c sugar

Then add:

1 egg
1 tbsp flour
½ tsp vanilla
¼ tsp orange extract
zest of one large orange

Spoon the cream cheese mixture over the brownies and swirl if if you desire. It’ll mostly sit on the top of the brownies but I like it that way!

Bake, cool and try not to eat them all.
