This was my second attempt at cheesecake, and was it great! I wrote in my last cheesecake post, that I totally disregarded the springform pan listed in the recipe, and almost had a huge mess in the oven because of it! Come to find out..Brandon’s grandparents are frequent readers of my site:) and surprised me with a new springform pan! I couldn’t wait to try this recipe:

Brownie Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

originally from allrecipes.com

  • 1 (19.5 ounce) box of Pillsbury Classic Traditional Fudge Brownies
  • 3 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (14 ounce) can of Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 3 large eggs (+ 2 more for the brownies)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • Whipped topping, or other favorite garnish

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9 inch springform pan.
  2. Mix brownies as directed on the package, and spread evenly in pan. Bake for 35 minutes, or until set.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Slowly beat in the sweetened condensed milk. Add the eggs and vanilla, mix well. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
  4. Reduce oven heat to 300 degrees.
  5. Pour cheesecake mix evenly on top of cooked brownies. Bake 50 minutes, or until set. Cool completely, then remove the sides to the springform pan. Garnish as desired. Store covered in the refrigerator.

A couple of things I noticed with mine: the brownies were a little hard towards the edge.. I probably would have reduced the cooking time a couple of minutes. The cheesecake on the other hand, I almost had to double its cooking time. But it was worth it! It took nearly 2 hours to cool, but I then garnished it with cool whip, and more mini chocolate chips. Everyone loved it. Thank you Memaw and Pawpaw for the pan!
