Ingredients

1 box
brownie mix
3
eggs
1 pkg
cream cheese
1/4 c
peanut butter
A few Tbsp
sugar
1/4 c
water
1/2 c
vegetable oil
2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
marshmallows, mini (these can be left out if necessary, the brownies will just be less gooey)
1
sleeve of graham crackers(crumbled with 4 tbsp melted butter)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Allow the cream cheese and eggs to reach room temperature and preheat oven to 350 with oven on upper middle rack.The ideal brownie mix for this recipe is a family sized box, just because you get more ;)
2
Follow the directions preparing the batter as noted, ignore the baking directions on the box. To the batter, add the mini marshmallows and 1 tsp of vanilla extract and stir one last time.
3
Add the graham cracker crumble to the bottom in of a buttered and floured or sprayed, nonstick 13x9 cake pan; pour in the brownie batter, set off to the side to prepare cheesecake topping.
4
Whip the cream cheese until fluffy, about a 1 minute. Then add the remaining teaspoon of vanilla, the last egg and 2 tbsp sugar. Whip for another minute or so until all lumps are gone and it returns to it's fluffy texture.
5
Scoop the cheesecake mixture with a large spoon or piping bag and make 5 stripes of cheesecake, then microwave the peanut butter until liquid (about 15 seconds depending on your microwave).
6
Drizzle the PB lightly over top of the cheesecake and also right onto the brownie batter, swirl with a knife or the blunt end of a skewer.
7
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until cheesecake topping starts to lightly brown and center is barely gooey. Then let the brownies set for about 30 minutes prior to serving.

Tip: Have napkins and ice cold milk ready! :)
