Apricot Cream Cheese Chocolate Brownies Recipe at
Place the dried apricots in a bowl and pour over the brandy. Allow to stand for at least 1 hour.

Beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth, gradually add the sugar and continue beating until creamy. Add the egg and beat to combine. Stir in the apricots and brandy.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch square cake pan.

Heat the butter over low heat. When half-melted, add the chocolate and stir to combine. When the chocolate is melted, remove from heat and set aside.

Beat the eggs until light and foamy, gradually add the sugar and beat until pale and thickened. Fold in the chocolate and butter mixture, the vanilla and sifted dry ingredients. Pour two-thirds of the chocolate mixture into the prepared pan. Pour the Apricot Cream Cheese on top. Spoon on the remaining chocolate mixture. Using a skewer, swirl the Apricot Cream Cheese through the chocolate mixture.

Bake until a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out barely moist, about 35-40 minutes. Cool completely in the pan before turning out and slicing to serve.

Serve with whipped cream or ice cream

Absolutely excellent! Used orange liquer instead of brandy. Added extremely finely grated orange peel and confectioner's sugar to the whipped cream and decorated with candied orange zest (fine orange zest covered with granulated sugar for a few hours) and a few small pieces of dark chocolate. Guests were awe struck! Definitely a repeat recipe.
