Marble Squares

I took these to our Sunday School picnic and when offered one, my friend Tammy said, "Oh, I know what these are! I like these!" Nice and moist, not too chocolatey and not too sweet. Just right, if you ask me.

3/4 cup water
1/2 cup margarine or butter
1/4 cup cocoa
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sour cream
1 8-oz package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
handful or two semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Combine water, margarine and cocoa in saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring to combine. Remove from heat. Stir in combined flour, 2 cups sugar, baking soda and salt. Add 2 beaten eggs and sour cream; mix well. Pour into greased and flour 15x10x1 inch jelly roll pan.

Combine cream cheese and 1/3 cup sugar, mixing until well blended. Blend in 1 egg. Spoon over chocolate batter. Cut through batter with knife several times for marble effect. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack. Cut into squares.
