3/4 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1-1/2 squares (1-1/2 oz.) unsweetened chocolate
2 cups all purpose flour
1-1/2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sour cream
CREAM CHEESE MIXTURE:
1 package (8-oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 Tbs. vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a small saucepan, combine the water, butter, and chocolate; cook and stir over low heat until smooth. Cool.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Add eggs and sour cream; beat on low just until combined. Stir in chocolate mixture until smooth.
In another bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla; set aside. Spread chocolate batter into a greased 15x10x1 inch baking pan. Drop cream cheese mixture by tablespoonfuls over batter; cut through the batter with a knife to swirl. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.
Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into 24 bars.
