Absolutely awesome. needs to be more Peanut buttery though. Here's what I did......Before pouring cheesecake mixture in, divide in 1/2. Melt 3/4 cup peanut butter (maybe thats a lot, but I like peanut butter so screw it), and mix with 1/2 cheesecake batter. Pour regular batter in, then pour peanut butter cheescake batter over that. When its baked and cut open, you can see the different layers of cheescake as well, so its a bit more attractive too.
Will make again. Rock.
I was very disappointed with how hard the brownie layer came out. But the cheesecake was delicious.
This cheesecake was really good but when making it again I will make a few changes: First of all... you DO NOT have to bake the brownie ahead of time. I was skeptical but SO glad that I didn't bake it first because it would have come out way too overdone. I used a regular box brownie mix and poured half into the springform pan then I layered all my other ingredients right over the uncooked brownie-- it came out perfect! I also took the advice of some other reviewers and added 1/3 cup peanut butter to half the cheesecake batter and then layered it-- i would definitely do that again. What I didn't like was the peanut butter and chocolate chip layer above the brownie. To me-- cheesecake is supposed to be rich and creamy and I didn't enjoy having to bite through hard chips. What I might do next time is melt the chips first and then swirl them together, OR layer reese's peanut butter cups on top of the brownie... Another thing I did differently was melt some creamy peanut butter to drizzle over the top vs. using the chips... The peanut butter melted so much easier and tasted/looked great on top with the melted chocolate chips and was very easy to drizzle. Overall the cheesecake had a great taste and was very attractive... just like I said-- the hard/crunchy chips on the bottom just threw me off a little as far as the texture-- try it with layering reese's peanut butter cups and let me know how it comes out!
SO rich, SO yummy, SO easy! I made this to take as dessert to a friend's house, and we all LOVED it! I took the suggestion of an earlier review and used a packaged brownie mix just to save time, and baked it about 8 minutes short of being done. Then I continued with the recipe and it turned out great. The brownie was moist, the cheesecake was fabulous... the only thing I might do differently next time is to use only half of the brownie mix- using the whole mix made a really thick brownie "crust".
Make sure to have ice cold glasses of milk ready! YUM!
MMMMMM this was so good. I was short on time, so i used brownie mix from the box. I didnt bake this at all before i put the cheesecake on top and it came out just perfect. I also added 1/4 cup of peanutbutter to the cheesecake mix and it was awesome!! I am so making this again!!!!
This was an outstanding recipe. Easy to make and well liked. I made it for the first time to share on Christmas Day. It was a hit. I will make it again in the future. The brownie was a little hard, but I will not bake it as long next time.
I always read the reviews before I make a recipe from allrecipes.com and I am really glad I did this time as well! This was a yummy cheesecake altho I do wish it had more of a chocolate and peanut butter taste to it. I tasted the filling and the brownie the most. This was probably the nicest looking cheesecake I have ever made - it had NO cracks! I now know that is from overbaking. Definitely you'll want to use the boxed brownie mix and just half of it. Also, don't cook it all the way, maybe just til firm. I think the next time I make this recipe I will chop up some of the chips and mix them in to the cheesecake mixture, or better yet, how do you think some chopped recess peanut butter cups would work in the mix? YUM!
This was a great cheesecake. I also used a boxed brownie mix and only baked it for about 10 minutes prior to adding the chessecake filling and it came out perfect. There was nothing left but the plate!!
