Reviews for Cheesecake Brownie Squares
"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."
"easy to make and were moist and tender. Made the recipe as directed."
"Hi, is there a "from scratch" way to do the choc frosting and fudge brownie mix to get the result you are sharing? I dont....use instants...."
"awesome! everyone loved these. will make 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!"
"i loved them. they were gone in minutes at my home. we ate the entire pan in less then 20 minutes"
"These are very good. The are not a thick brownie but a lot of flavor packed in each bite."
"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!"
"Every time I make these brownies, they go quickly. I make vanilla frosting to put on half of them instead of chocolate and leave the others plain."
"Left off the forsting as it was too much and covered the taste of the cheesecake portion. I also used 8 oz cream cheese (1 brick). Thought they tasted even better the next day!"

"i make these all the time they are so good please try them u want be sorry every one loves themmmmm"
"Too rich, six our of eight who tried it didn't like it. I would prefer regular brownies with frosting."
"These are the best brownies and I make them frequently. Does anyone know if they have to be refridgerated? I always store them in the fridge, but are they okay to set out for awhile because of the cream cheese?"
"Delicious! The entire family loved it! Next time I make it I will only spread 1 1/2 cups of brownie on bottom of pan though."

"My family was in a panic because I misplaced the magazine and couldn't find the recipe. I was looking under cream cheese brownies. My husband searced the magazine racks at numerous stores trying to find the recipe. Finally, while cleaning, it showed up. Everyone who has tried one loves them. I make them over and over..."

"I made this once and am about to make it again. My family loved it so much my poor husband never even got to try one because our four children and I ate them all. 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! :)"
