To make Brownies:

  2. Stir in flour, cake flour, cocoa, and salt until mixed together. Fold in chocolate chips. 

  3. Spread brownie batter into a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Set aside.

Cream Cheese Cheesecake Swirl:

  2. Drop cream cheese mixture, by the spoonful, onto the batter in the pan.  Using a sharp knife, make a swirl pattern with the cream cheese swirl. 

  3. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for at least 1 hour to set up.
