Hershey’s Cheesecake Brownies

It seems like it is a tradtion on Sunday’s to have brownies at my parents.   I’ve been wanting to try this new recipe that I found.  Why?  Well because it has cheesecake and a Hershey chocolate bar melted on top!  You can not go wrong EVER with that combo!  My family LOVED them and they turned out so yummy! 

Rating:  4 stars  Difficulty of Recipe: 3 stars
Things that I did differently:  For some reason my cheesecake didn’t swirl as well as the original recipe.  Either way they were still AWESOME!
Things I would change:  Nothing… maybe try swirling a little more.  Haha
Will I make this again?  Yes

  15. Yay! You were featured this week at Recipe Sharing Monday. Thanks so much for partying with us 🙂

  16. Is it ok to use another brand of unsweetened cocoa powder? (Hershey’s unfortunately isn’t available at the supermarkets near where i live 🙁 )

  17. OMG…those look so good!!!

  18. Your brownies look so good, but unfortunately mine didn’t turn out so well!

  19. They’re in my oven as we speak! They look delicious so far and I can’t wait to try them for myself! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  20. I’m I suppose to use a brownie Mix for these?

  21. These are fantastic–I will never make brownies from a box again. I might try them in a mini muffin pan with a kiss on top instead of the candy bar.

  22. V.V. McDaniel says:

    These look yummy and delicious.

  23. Have you ever doubled the recipe for a 9×13 pan. I need to serve more people than an 8×8 pan? These look divine for our party. Thanks.

  24. Can any one plz mention weight of butter instead of tbsp.. plz do so as it will be easier for me..

  25. Please clarify the following:
    “Beat ingredients together until smooth. Pour over brownie batter. Use sharp knife to swirl together”.
    Do this mean swirl the cream cheese into the brownie batter using a sharp knife?
    Also, any tips to make this recipe fail safe?
    Look forward to hearing back. I would like to make it for a function tomorrow night.
    Thank you!

  26. Extra special with melted chocolate topping. Totally yummy without it. I put in a 9×9 and worked well. I was worried would be too thin. I was wrong..

  27. When I try to print this out I get a 49.4c02 error on my printer. Anyone else run into this issue?
