Marble Squares

This recipe is from my friend - Tammy!  Tammy is a lunch buddy, a scrapbooking friend, etc.  Tammy doesn't love to cook but this is one of her "go-to" recipes, and we all love it at my house.  I had all of the ingredients on hand so I made it for the 4th of July.  I think you will add it to your "Go-To" recipes!


MARBLE SQUARES

1  8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg

Combine softened cream cheese with sugar until well mixed.  Add egg and blend well.

1/2 cup margarine (I used butter)
3/4 cup water
1 1/2 squares unsweetened chocolate
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream (all I had was light)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
6 oz pkg semi sweet chocolate chips

Combine margarine, water and chocolate squares in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil.  Remove from heat.  Stir in combined flour and sugar.  Add eggs, sour cream, soda and salt.  Mix well.

Pour into greased and floured 15 1/3 x 10 1/2 jelly roll pan.  Spoon cheese mixture over chocolate batter.  Cut through batter with a knife several times for marble effect.  Sprinkle with chocolate chips.  Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
