For Brownie Base

Combine AP flour, cocoa powder and salt and sift into a mixing bowl. Then add both sugars and espresso powder. In a separate bowl, mix together eggs and vanilla extract.

Using the double boiler method, melt the butter and chocolate over boiling water in a mixing bowl. Once melted, whisk in the sugars and espresso powder. Then add the eggs and vanilla extract. Finally mix in the AP flour, cocoa powder and salt.

Line a 9x9 baking pan with parchment paper. Spread the brownie base down evenly. Then use a large spoon and drop dollops of the cheesecake mix and blackberry jam over top of brownie base. Using a pairing knife or toothpick, create a marble look over the top of the brownie base. Gently tap bottom to ensure its spread evenly.

Heat oven to 325 F and bake for 25-35 minutes, until cake tester or toothpick comes out clean. Portion into 2”x2” squares.
