“If I want to go all out and make a really superb, gourmet cream cheese brownie, I pull out this recipe. It comes via the Chocolatier Magazine, approximately around the year 1999.  You can taste the pure high quality of the chocolate.   It is to die for!  My chocoholic husband Bill thinks he died and went to chocolate heaven with one bite of this exceptional confection!

I suggest making the bars small since these are very rich. So heavenly!  Savor each bite and enjoy!”

6 ounces bittersweet baking chocolate, coarsely broken
3 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, coarsely broken
