From Wish Magazine: Chocolate Cranberry “Moose” Brownies

Source: Wish Magazine (now defunct), March 2007

3/4 cup margarine, softened, plus 1tbsp for greasing pan
2 cups frozen cranberries
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup cranberry or orange juice (I used fresh squeezed orange)
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
6 eggs
1 cup chopped bittersweet (dark) chocolate, melted
1/3 cup chopped semi-sweet chocolate, melted
3/4 cup plain cream cheese, softened
1/4 tsp orange zest

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Grease and line bottom and sides of a 9- x 13-inch cake pan with parchment paper.
  3. In a small pot, combine cranberries, 1/4 cup sugar and juice. Simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes or until cranberries begin to pop.
  4. Strain cranberries, let cool and reserve 1/4 cup cooking liquid.
  5. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together, set aside.
  6. Beat 1 cup sugar with butter until fluffy. Continue to beat and add 3 eggs. Add melted chocolate and mix well. Use a spatula to fold in flour mixture. Spread into prepared pan. Spoon prepared cranberries evenly over top.
  7. In a small clean bowl, beat cream cheese with remaining 1/4 cup sugar until fluffy. Beat in remaining 3 eggs. Add orange zest and reserved cranberry liquid and mix well. Pour over chocolate and cranberries and gently swirl mixture with a knife.
  8. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool.
  9. Chill before removing from pan and cut into 1-inch squares.

I used an 8″ square pan and it took an hour to bake and set.
