Ingredients

brownie

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate melted (use a Ghiradelli baking bar)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 6 Tbsp (3/4 stick) butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

cheesecake layer

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 (8) oz package regular cream cheese softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 8 Oreo cookies chopped coarsely

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8 baking pan with foil so that there is enough to pull the brownies out once they are done. Butter or spray lightly with baking spray. Set aside.
  • Over a double broiler, melt butter, sugar and chocolate. Whisk until smooth. Let mixture cool on counter for 5 minutes. Pour into the bowl of a stand mixer. Add vanilla and one egg, mix, then add the other egg, mix until incorporated.
  • In a small mixing bowl whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. With mixing speed on low, gradually add the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Remove bowl from stand and fold in chocolate chips. Set aside.
  • For the cheesecake batter, in a medium size mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, salt and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Add egg, then mix until just combined. Gently fold in chopped Oreos.
  • To assemble, pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan. Place in oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and carefully pour the cheesecake batter on top, gently spread to create an even layer. (to create the look above, place additional crushed Oreos on top of the batter) Place in oven and bake for an additional 30-35 minutes or until the cheesecake is set and is slightly golden brown around the edges.
  • Remove from oven and let cool in pan for 45 minutes before chilling in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours. When ready to serve, remove from pan using the foil overhang. Peel foil from brownies, cut and serve.

-Makes approximately 9 large brownies or 12 standard size brownies
