Blueberry Cream Cheese Filled Chocolate Brownies

OK................. so this is my new creation. Blueberry Cream Cheese Filled Chocolate Brownies. Yummo!!!!!! They are moist and rich, with that gorgeous tang of blueberry heaven. Enjoy!!!!

Ingredients for the Brownie Part

  • 125 grams of Butter
  • 250 grams of Dark Chocolate
  • 2 cups of Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of Vanilla Extract
  • 4 large Eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of Plain Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Salt

Ingredients for the Cream Cheese Filling Part

  • 375 grams of Cream Cheese Softened
  • 1/2 cup of Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of Vanilla Extract
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1/2 tub of frozen Blueberries

Make the Cream Cheese filling first. Blend the cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla extract in a free standing mixer until smooth and creamy. Then add half the blueberries and blend some more. This should break the blueberries down a bit and start oozing out the juices, so that you get that luscious purple colour. When that is done, stir through the remaining blueberries so that they stay whole in the mix. Add more blueberries at this stage if you wish, I did. Set mix aside.

To make the brownie mix. Blend eggs, sugar and vanilla extract in a free standing mixture until light and fluffy. Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the chocolate, stir over a low heat until smooth and glossy. Beat chocolate butter mixture into the egg mixture. Lastly stir in the flour and salt. You should have a gorgeous sweet chocolate mixture.

Next it is all about the layering. Put half the chocolate mixture into a lined slice pan and spread out evenly. Then add all your cream cheese filling across the top of the chocolate mixture, spread that out to make a nice even layer. Then add the last of the chocolate mixture on top. Spread out evenly. Don't panic if you find the cream cheese filling is mixing a little with the chocolate mixture. Then bake in an oven for 40 minutes. Turn off the oven and allow them to cool completely in the oven. Lastly dust with some icing sugar and your done. They are really yummy.

I hope you guys enjoy them, we did.
