This is a simple recipe that is quick to put together and very tasty too. Use a good quality brownie mix and this will impress people without much effort.
I made this for work the other day and put it in a 9" springform pan. I baked the brownie for 25 min, drizzled with carmel and pecans and then put the cheesecake mixture over top and baked for 60 min. It came out perfect and was so delicious. It is a very easy recipe to make.
These are the best! Often requested and never lasting long. I have been making them since finding the recipe in the Kraft magazine. I popped on here to get the recipe. I make my brownies from scratch and found that baking the brownie portion about 2/3 of the total time is perfect. Thanks for the putting the recipe up here.
