Swirled Creamy Fudge Pie

I love making the usual favorite desserts in this household, one of those being Hot Fudge Pie, but every now and then i like to experiment, change things up.

Get creative. 

For this particular dessert i took the hot fudge pie, and decided to add a cream cheese base and swirl to get the look you see here. I was immediately pleased with the look of the pie, but a little nervous about the taste.
Despite the fact that it was my first time swirling, and there's always things to improve on first tries, i felt this pie was a great addition to my dessert file and wanted to share. I hope you enjoy the creamy, fudgey flavor of the filling with the crisp, buttery and flaky pie crust.

Preheat oven to 350. Grease pie dish and roll out pie crust.
Beat the cream cheese, and sugar together with a mixer. Add in the eggs, one at a time, and mix.
Add the vanilla and mix.
Add in half the flour and mix, followed by the milk then the rest of the flour.
Melt the butter, add in the chocolate and stir. Microwave for 10-20 seconds or until chocolate is melted.
Pour cream cheese mixture into pie crust followed by the chocolate. Swirl gently using a small spatula until you get the desired look.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick placed in the center comes out clean.
