Great recipe and a great way to dress up a box of brownie mix by adding the quick addition of a creamy cheesecake type mixture. So simple and so delicious - what more could you ask for from such an easy recipe? I made sure that the cream cheese and egg were at room temp. just as you do with cheesecakes and added a cup of mini chocolate chips to make this even more decadent. This definitely takes regular brownies to another level of deliciousness with only a few ingredients. Have a cold glass of milk on hand 'cause you're gonna need it! Read More

I've made these boxed brownie cheesecake things a couple of times in the past and each time I did I swore "Never again." I apparently have a short memory because I tried them again. What did I think would be different? Once again I didn't like these at all; in fact I didn't keep them. Too gooshy. "Never again." Read More

An easy comfort dessert. I've made variations of cream cheese brownies before but I like that this version has a little vanilla. To get a better swirl effect it's easier to layer most of the brownie batter pour the cream cheese mixture over that and then layer the remaining brownie batter over the top before swirling.

These taste ok. It s a easy and quick process. I used the knife to make swirls however it did not work. Most of the cream cheese was on top. Next time I will mix everything together. Read More

I followed the recipe except to use regular chocolate chips instead of chunks. I didn't think they were anything wonderful but the folks at DH's work ate them up. I'll probably make them again for the same reason. Read More
