Melt butter. Beat in 1 cup of sugar and 1 egg until well blended. Stir in flour, salt, cocoa, nuts and 1/2 tsp vanilla. Pour into greased 3 quart crockpot. With a mixer at low speed, beat cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 egg and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract until just mixed, at medium speed, beat 2 minutes. Drop dollops on top of batter. Using the tip of a knife, lightly score the top surface to mix the cream cheese mixture in slightly. Cover and cook on High for 2 hours.
I adapted this from a traditional recipe and was really hoping that it would turn out, as I was in dire need of chocolate. It turned out awesome and I just love the moistness of the brownies. No frosting is needed with the cream cheese dollops. I will be making these again soon, maybe tomorrow. If you want to make these in the oven, place in a square baking dish and bake 40 minutes at 350. 4 1/2 stars.
