DIRECTIONS

  • Melt unsweetened chocolate and butter. Cool. Beat 2 eggs and 1 cup light brown sugar, about 4 minutes. Beat in melted chocolate mixture, vanilla, and semisweet finely chopped chocolate.
  • Add 1/2 cup flour and baking powder. Mix until just blended. Do not overbeat.
  • Spread 1 cup brownie batter over bottom of greased 9 inch springform pan.
  • Bake until firm, at 350 degrees, about 17 minutes.
  • Cool baked crust in freezer for about 15 minutes.
  • Blend cream cheese and 1/2 cup light brown sugar until smooth.
  • Add 3 eggs, one at a time, beating on low speed, and 1/2 cup sour cream. Add peanut butter and 1/4 cup flour.
  • Spread remaining brownie batter around the sides of the pan, sealing batter to brownie crust.
  • Pour in filling, which will not be as high as brownie batter.
  • Bake in a greased and floured 9 inch springform pan at 350 degrees, about 50 minutes or until brownie sides have fallen to form a ring around the filling.
  • Beat 3/4 cup sour cream and 3 teaspoons sugar. Spread on top of cheesecake to within 3/4 inch of edge.
  • Bake cheesecake 3 minutes more.
  • Cool.
  • Refrigerate overnight.
