"This recipe came about purely by luck. A few years back, I had to make a last minute dessert for a party. I had wanted to make cheesecake but I did not have graham cracker crumbs. I did have a package of brownie mix and frosting. They were a hit at the party and I have made them ever since."

VERY GOOD, but very sweet and rich! try omitting the frosting and cut the cheesecake topping into the brownie with a knife before cooking to give it a swirled effect. Or try adding chocolate chi...
