Double Chocolate Cream Cheese Brownies

Let us introduce you to our friend Val, owner and boss lady of Crust Club, and revolutionary dinner club- you can order your meals + dessert to bake in your own oven. She’s a genius in the kitchen, using her proven recipes to sell over 200,000 meals and still counting. She has her classic chicken pot-pie, but has expanded to desserts, hand pies and so much more.

Val’s real passion is creating food, with simple ingredients and quick methods, to get dinner on the table and into hungry bellies. While her crust club recipes are locked up tight, she is so willing and happy to share her equally delicious and satisfying recipes she’s not selling with the rest of the world. But they come with the Crust Club guarantee of goodness.

We were thrilled when she agreed to share her Double Chocolate Cream Cheese Brownies with us. We think you’ll love the simplicity of ingredients with the complexity of great flavor and texture. And we believe every brownie should have at least two kinds of chocolate, so this is a total win in our books!

Look at these beauties! The magic of the swirl never gets old…
