That perfect balance of chocolate and cheesecake, what more can you ask for! I will tell you I was a bit concerned after making the brownies for the recipe. The 8x8 pan of brownies took longer to bake, by like 15 minutes. When we tasted the brownies as we cut and used the following day, they weren't "the best brownies I had ever had". HOWEVER... they are the perfect brownie for this recipe. They totally work for their intended purpose here.
