No recipe image available.A two-layered brownie bar, the first layer is a chewy chocolate brownie, which is topped with a vanilla-flavored cheesecake layer.

Recipe Ingredients:

Chocolate Brownie Layer:
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 (1-ounce) square baking chocolate
2 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Cheesecake Layer:
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cooking Directions:

  1. For Chocolate Brownie Layer: Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
  2. Melt butter in a small saucepan; remove from heat and add chocolate. Let stand a few minutes and then stir until chocolate is melted.
  3. With an electric mixer, beat eggs and salt until frothy. Gradually add sugar, beating about 2 minutes until pale yellow and thick.
  4. Stir in chocolate mixture, then flour, mixing to blend.
  5. Spread batter evenly into prepared baking pan.
  6. For Cheesecake Layer: With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar and eggs until smooth. Blend in flour, then water and vanilla.
  7. Pour cheesecake mixture over chocolate layer.
  8. Bake 30 to 40 minutes, until top is set but not browned. A wooden pick inserted in the center should come out slightly sticky. (Overbaking will cause brownies to be dry.) Cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into 2-inch squares.

Makes 16 brownies.
