Cheesecake Brownie Squares Recipe

Brownies are my grandson Noah's favorite, so we always make some when he comes to visit. These ooey-gooey brownies are a definite crowd-pleaser. —Barbara Banzhof, Muncy, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:36 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package fudge brownie mix (13-inch x 9-inch pan size)
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 can (16 ounces) chocolate frosting

Directions

  • 1. Prepare brownie mix batter according to package directions. Spread 2 cups into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish; set aside.
  • 2. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter, sugar, flour and vanilla until smooth. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Spread evenly over brownie batter. Top with remaining brownie batter. Cut through batter with a knife to swirl.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 28-32 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs (brownies may appear moist). Cool completely on a wire rack. Spread frosting over brownies. Yield: 3 dozen.

"Made as directed but used 8 oz. cream cheese. When cut many hours later, the brownie part was seriously undercooked. Taste was good. Cheesecake part could use more vanilla. May try again."

"I made these yesterday and they are excellent! I used 8 ozs. of cream cheese. I added one cup semisweet chocolate chips to the batter, so I didn't frost them. The brownies are 1-1/4" thick, very moist and tender. This recipe is a definite keeper!"

"The frosting would have been too much, so I left it off. They were also a little too gooey for me, so I'd bake a little longer next time. Overall, a great recipe, though!"

I'm going to frost them with the frosting, then put them in the fridge for a while to make them easier to cut and to firm up the frosting. I'd recommend this for anyone who loves chocolate! :)"
