Cheesecake Brownies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a small saucepan over low heat melt the butter, chocolate and cocoa powder. Transfer to a large bowl. Add sugar, eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla, flour, and cayenne. Using a hand-held electric mixer beat until well combined.

Spread batter into a buttered and floured 8 by 8-inch pan.

In a medium bowl add the cream cheese, sugar, egg yolk, 1 teaspoon vanilla and beat until thoroughly mixed.
