    Fudgy Cheescake Swirl Brownies

    Suzanne Schmidt from FREMONT, NE

    I fixed these for a baby shower and they went over well. They are easy to make but I did feel they were just a bit dry.

    13x9 pan nice size brownie

    Marianne Mason from HOMER GLEN, IL

    Im always looking for recipes that go in a 13x9 pan, so that there will be enough for everyone. These are great but they went so fast, that a 13x9 pan still wasnt enough.

    simply good!

    Rose Carney from ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL

    This recipe is great if you want to turn a simple treat into a special dessert. The addition of the cream cheese layer makes this dessert good enough for special occasions!

    Good and Easy

    denise martin from ALEXANDRIA, OH

    My seven year old wants to learn how to bake so we downloaded this recipe. Very good and very easy. She and the family were very happy with the results of her first baking experience.

    Just Scrumptious

    Wanda Sharp from CANTON, MS

    I made this recipe using a brownie mix and I add the cheesecake topping and it was just delicious. They were just wonderful. My mom called and told me to remind her to slap me next time she sees me because those brownies were some kind of good. My sister tried them ust as I had taken them out of the oven and she had to pack her some to take home.

    I made these brownies that combine my favorite two desserts (brownies and cheescake) and my family ate them in a matter of minutes!

  •  Star(s)

    Very good!

    P Cordaro from WILLOWICK, OH

    These are very moist and delicious. I put some chocolate cream cheese frosting on top and everyone loved them. Put them out at work and they were gone in about 15 minutes. I highly recommend them!

    Boy, Are These Good!

    Pamela Daugherty from West Alexandria, OH

    I used a brownie mix, but put the cheesecake swirl into them. Took them to a church picnic this afternoon and brought home an empty container. Everyone loved them! They are so delicious. I'll be making these again soon.

    reminded of a favorite resturant

    TAMMY JOHNSON from ARLINGTON, TX

    These brownies remind me of a resturant I visited in Nebraska. I have tried many box mixes but they nevr turned out like my favorite missed dessert, zebra bars. Easy to make, and complements will fly.

    Fudgy Cheesecake Swirl Brownies

    Chehphaik Tan from BROKEN ARROW, OK

    I like it using only 1 package of 8 oz cream cheese, not like other cheesecake required 3 or more. Easy to make and everybody love it. Yummy!

    Easy & delicious!

    C Maker from MOUNT AIRY, MD

    I love to bake but as a mom of two young children, I can't always bake elaborately as I would like. This recipe was easy to follow, clean up was a breeze, and the brownies were absolutely delicious! I will definitely keep this recipe in my repertoire!

  •  Star(s)

    Very nice

    Sharlene Birkland from STEILACOOM, WA

    This is a great recipe; I doctored it up a little by adding a TB of orange zest and a TB of Grand Marnier to the cheesecake mix and the whole batch was gone in a couple of hours!

    Cheesecake Brownies

    Nicole Hess from Manheim, PA

    These brownies are very good. They are great for when you want chocolate but not something that is really rich. These brownies are a very good mixture between cream cheese and chocolate. I would definitely make them again since they were good and simple to make!

  •  Star(s)

    Very moist brownies.

    Koren Greenidge from KINGSHILL, VI

    I have tried boxed mixes for brownies, and they always come out dry. This recipecame out alot more moist that the ones I've made before. I guess I'll just have to adjust the time they come out of the oven.

    good cheesecake bownies

    Crystal Jones from Suitland, MD

    This was my first time making cheesecake brownies and they were pretty good. They were very moist though. But I believe that these brownies are supposed to be that way. The best part: you don't need to drink any milk with it!

    Tried Them Again with changes

    Shanna Davis from Whitewater, CO

    I tried making these brownies again. This time I cut back on the amount of butter and chocolate. They came out much better and were quite good. Quite possibly a necessary adjustment for higher altitudes.

  •  Star(s)

    Good but..........

    Shanna Davis from Whitewater, CO

    These brownies were good fresh out of the oven but they were awful the next day. They became gummy and very dense and I threw them out. I don't think I would make these again unless they were to be eaten right away such as for a party or other gathering. They just don't hold over well.

    They were ok

    LaShawn Struggs from Pensacola, FL

    I have made better chessecake brownies before and to me they were not sweet enough, maybe I swirled the cheese to much I doubt It. No I wouldn't make these again.

  •  Star(s)

    Very good!

    Crystal Fencke from Chicago, IL

    Liked the chocolate and cream cheese flavor marriage. And they were fun to make--enjoyed the swirling. I'd make them again--I made them for church and received lots of compliments and a request for the recipe. Thanks again Nestle!

    It doesn't matter why I make these brownies - for our family, for church, school, potluck dinner, etc. They are gone quickly. A friend asks me to bring these every time we have dinner at her house. A great treat.

    Yummy brownies

    Marcia Reid from Bethesda, MD

    These are sooo good. I have tried other brownies of this type but this is the best by far. Not difficult and taste really scrumptious. Of course, not good for dieting.
