I made these for the Cooking Tribute to Mirj and they were delicious. I did swirl the cheesecake mixture into the brownie (to hide it from my picky son) and I also used a bigger pan (don't have 9x9) but it all came out just fine anyway. Picky son even loved them!

These came out very good and they were pretty easy, too. Even my son, who hates cheesecake, went for these. I was unsure if I should swirl the cheese mixture into the batter, because this is the only way I've ever seen this type of brownie done. Since the recipe did not say to swirl, I didn't. I think I may try it next time, though, because although these are quite tasty, the top almost looks like macaroni and cheese. The cheese mixture got a little brown and when I took them out of the oven (after only 30 minutes), my husband said "I thought you were making brownies!" I used a large brownie mix (for a 9x13 pan) and made it in a 8x10 pan (I do not own a 9 x 9 square pan). I was not sure what size brownie mix, but when I saw the cooking time, I figured it was the larger package cooked in a small pan to produce a thicker brownie. All in all, I was happy the way these turned out, but I am still not sure if I prepared them correctly!

Very yummy. These were a hit with everyone who tried a piece. I swirled the cheescake mixture into the brownie mix, as did Robin W. I used a Pampered Chef 9" square baker. (Finally, I've found a recipe that works perfect with this odd-sized 9" x 9" pan.) A great way to use up all those brownie mixes I have in my freezer!
