This has too much chocolate for the cream cheese mixture. The chocolate took over the cake and the cake comes out very thin. I would not make this again. The brownie crust was good, used half of a family size package and baked for 12 minutes .
I have followed this recipe to the letter = and the brownie base turns into a "RADIAL TIRE" that can't be cut or chewed. I tried melting the milk chocolate chips - set them in a pyrex cup in a bowl of water and microwaved them slowly -- but the chocolate seized up. Coupled with the brownie base - disaster. I even tried baking the base for only 14 minutes instead of 15 - but got the same results. The filling did not set up well either....... so I had "soup on a tire".. What is going wrong??? Embarrassing - I took it to a church potluck, and noticed how many left it on the plate. I probably won't be asked to bring anything to the next potluck!!
Glad I read the reviews before making this recipe. I didn't pay attention to the size of brownie mix and had mixed up a regular 13 x 9 size box mix. I just used part of it for the cheesecake and the rest I baked in a pie pan. Very easy to make and tasty.
I would like to make this recipe but noticed it calls for an 8 oz brownie mix. I did see a 10 oz. package at the store....by reading others comments it seems like they are using a large box of brownie mix. Seems like that would be way too much.
Excellent dessert that's easy to make. If I need a big batch for a crowd I use a 9x13 pan and use a bigger box of brownie mix, then double the filling. Once it's cool, I just cut into bars for easy finger food.
