My bf loves brownies but he also loves cheesecake.........so when I saw this recipe I had to make it. It combines the best of both!
BLACK AND WHITE CHEESECAKE BROWNIES MAKES 16 2 1/4IN. BROWNIES
1 12oz pkg.(2c.) semi sweet chocolate mini bits, divided
1/4c. butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3c. all purpose flour
1 8oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
2tb. butter, softened
1tb. all purpose flour
1/2tsp. almond extract
3/4c. semi sweet mini chocolate bits reserved from the above 12oz.pkg.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt over hot (not boiling) water, 1 1/4c. semi sweet bits; stir till smooth. Set aside. In large bowl, combine sugar and butter; beat till creamy. Add eggs, vanilla and salt; mix well. Spread into foil lined 9in. square baking pan.
In large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar and butter; beat till creamy. Add eggs, milk, flour and almond extract; beat well. Stir in remaining mini 3/4c mini bits. Pour over brownie base. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 min. Cool completely; cut into squares.
The only thing I did different was I didn't add all those mini bits to the cheesecake layer. I felt it would be way too much chocolate. I just sprinkled a few on top to decorate before baking. They were awesome!
