By Gloria Pitzer, as seen in… The Original 200 Plus Secret Recipes© Book (Secret RecipesTM, St. Clair, MI; June 1997, p. 18)


4 oz. Baker’s Chocolate, Sweet German

5 TB butter (separated in half)

3 oz. cream cheese

1 C. sugar

3 eggs

1 TB flour (+ 1/2 C. additional flour)

2 tsp. vanilla

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 C. chopped walnuts

1/2 tsp. almond or vanilla extract


Melt chocolate with half the butter [stirring until smooth] and set aside.

Cream rest of butter with cream cheese and 1/4 C. of the sugar. Add one of the eggs, 1 TB of the flour, and half of the vanilla; then set aside.

Beat until thick: the last 2 eggs, rest of sugar, baking powder, salt, and rest of flour.

Blend chocolate mixture into this, with nuts and rest of extract.

Spread half of this into a greased, 8-inch, square pan. Spread the cheese mixture over that and the rest of the chocolate mixture on top. Draw knife through mixture to marbleize it.

Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes or until set. Cool before cutting.
