  1. Based on the reviews indicating the brownie was too cake-like, I used a box mix as directed with the topping for this recipe. The cream cheese topping did not sink, but ended up more like it's own layer. Additionally, the bake time was a bit longer (like double), but they were very good. Ialso used only half the chips & that was plenty because it was quite sweet already with the 2 layers. Thanks for sharing!
  2. It wasn't as moist as I thought it would be. The cream cheese portion kind of sank and created craters on the brownie. It really is more of a cake-like brownie; I'm looking for something more fudge-like.
  3. I know why they won at the fair!! These are incredible! Very moist, both the cake and the cheesecake part. Good "as is" or topped with a scoop of ice cream. ;) My only 'criticism' would be with the name. We all thought it was more like a cake than a brownie. I wish I had known this before because when I make brownies, I always mix them by hand. I think these should be mixed with a mixer, or at least a whisk since the batter is very thin and was full of lumps when mixing it by hand. However, it turned out delicious and that's all that matters, right?? :) Thanks philocrates for sharing!


AND that is the end of this. If the phone doesn't ring? It's me. If you are looking to ask me a question? I'm not here. I won't answer. I do not assure you that the ingredients, amounts or even the directions in any recipe under my two accounts are correct due to the bad directional pointer in the database that is causing problems with the amounts or ingredients. I will also NOT assure you they are correct when the site claims they are fixed. Use at your own risk. They will be correct on my site. End of story. Sigh..
