Awesome idea and pretty too. I usually put 2/3 of the brownie batter into the pan first, then ALL of the cream cheese on top, then add remaining brownie batter. This way, it makes a nice swirl, and not too white on top. I sometimes use a 9-inch springform pan to make this then cut into pie wedges and garnish with fresh strawberry slices for an easy, attractive, elegant dessert.

I made this just as written, no modifications, additions, or otherwise messing around with the recipe. It's easy to mix together, turns out perfectly with no issues or problems whatsoever, and looks pretty. Having said that, however, the brownie part wasn't chocolatey enough and, because the cheesecake filling was swirled in, the flavor of that kind of got lost too. Unfortunately, this is only an average cheesecake brownie that I think would be worth trying again with a "from scratch" brownie batter.

OMG! These were sooo good! I used 2 pkgs of supreme brownie mix, because i love thick brownies. I added 1 tsp of vanilla to the cream cheese mixture, and 3 tbs of butter, and 1 tbs of flour, it really helps with the texture. Definately use parchement paper to line the pan to prevent sticking or tough edges. soo delicious, much easier this way and just as good as the "from scratch" method! thx!

Fabulous. And so easy! I made them in a 8x8" glass pan since we like our brownies thick. It did take quite a bit of extra time to cook them through, but they were well worth the wait! Definitely pour 2/3 of the brownie batter in the pan first, then the cheesecake, then drizzle the remaining batter on top before swirling with a knife. It makes for a much better marbled effect.

This was really good, and I am a from scratch type of person. I'm not sure what happened with the other people who said it was too runny. I cooked it 10 mins longer than the regular box directions, and I could have cooked it a little less than that. Two things: 1) Make sure and mix the cream cheese mixture until smooth and thick. I didn't soften the cream cheese before mixing. 2) I added 1/2t of vanilla to add a little more flavor.

This recipe is so easy and tasty. It really looks elegant too. I used a basic brownie mix and prepared it on the box per "cakelike" instructions. I added a tsp of vanilla to the cream cheese mixture for some extra flavor. I had no problem mixing it up even with the cream cheese right from the fridge. It's important to cook this in a preheated oven (I did it in a glass pan 350 degrees.) It was done when the toothpick came out clean and the top started to brown a bit. As an added touch I put chocolate chips on the top while it cooled. Don't try to cut it up until it is completely cooled. Wonderful quick easy recipe. Thanks Nat!

Tasty! Very quick and easy, goes on top of homemade brownies as easily as a mix. I find it actually tastes even better after you've let it refrigerate overnight--the topping tastes even more "cheesecakey." It can also be made into a fancy treat if you make it in two round pans, cut into wedges, and top with raspberries.

Very easy and good! I love how the brownie texture does change to more like a cheesecake, very moist! I would definitely pour 2/3 of brownie mix, then cream cheese mixture (using small dollops all over, even corners) then place remaining brownie mix on top before swirling with knife. Easy!!
