Now, for the brownies part. Sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

If you’re not using chocolate chips for the brownie part, chop the chocolate.

In a microwave-safe bowl, place butter and chocolate. Heat in the microwave on medium until most of the chocolate is melted.

Don’t overheat the chocolate, the remaining lumps will melt when you give it a good stir – but you must do it as soon as you get it out of the microwave! Sorry, didn’t mean to yell, just don’t let it cool in lumps. :)

Use a spoon to top with remaining chocolate batter – you don’t have to cover the cream cheese mixture completely.
