Which cocoa powder should I use?

Cocoa has become a popular culinary item, and more cocoa powder keeps popping up in stores. This is because cocoa itself is a health food. Any of these options will work as long as they are pure, andAdd sugar, cocoa powder. Dutch process cocoa powder would also work. Sweet cocoa contains not only sugar, but also often some flavoring and sometimes dry milk solids. This recipe calls for the right amount of sugar — using sweetened cocoa would ruin the flavor, texture, and sweetness of these brownies.

Should I do it ahead of time?

Many people enjoy warm brownies. These will be nice warm, but to give the tops a chance to set, they’re best made ahead of time just enough to cool completely.

Does the cream cheese make the brownies too gooey?

Like cheesecake, the cream cheese in this recipe will set when baked. However, you can add an extra egg to the brownie batter if you like your brownies more cakey than fudgy.
