It's richer than a Godiva chocolate.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These are the richest brownies you'll ever put into your mouth! The brownie base is dense, chewy and chocolaty. Alone it's great. But add the cheesecake layer with little bitty chocolate chips and you have the best of both worlds - brownies and cheesecake. Make sure to grab a glass of milk... you'll need it to wash this rich brownie down. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
