Easy Cheesecake Brownies

I always thought cheesecake brownies would be impossibly difficult to make.  After all, they look kind of hard to make, plus the wouldn't charge so much for them at coffee houses and other such places if they weren't hard right?  *snicker*

Anyway, when going though my personal cookbook the other day, I discovered a recipe for cheesecake brownies that was unbelievably easy.  I had to try them right away!  They were immediately deemed a success, so here you are:

Easy Cheesecake Brownies

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
4 eggs
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2-1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350degrees.   Melt the butter in a large saucepan.  Remove from heat.  Stir in 2 cups sugar, cocoa powder, 1 tsp vanilla, 4 eggs, flours, baking powder, and salt.  Pour into a greased 9x13 baking pan and set aside.  Beat cream cheese with an electric mixture until smooth.  Beat in remaining sugar, egg, and vanilla until just blended.  Pour cream cheese mixture over brownie mixture.  Cut through several times with a knife for marble effect if desired and sprinkle with chocolate chips.  Bake about 40 minutes or until cream cheese mixture is lightly browned.  Let cool before cutting into squares.
