These brownies are so good. I followed the recipe except used 8oz cream cheese and added a little more vanilla as others suggested. This recipe is a keeper!

I'd meant to say: I used 8-oz. cream cheese and 1/2 cup butter, 1 package of brownie mix for 13x9x2" size pan! See the rest of my review below! This recipe still ranks as a 5* rating in my opinion!

I made these delicious brownies to take to a pot luck dinner and they were a hit. I followed a couple of tips other reviewers mentioned by adding a little more vanilla to the cheesecake mixture and only using 1 1/2 cups brownie batter in the bottom of the baking dish. Perfect. The frosting was a little messy but so good and chocolately. Everyone loved them. I will be preparing these brownies again.

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!

These are very good. The are not a thick brownie but a lot of flavor packed in each bite.
