Jeweled Brownie Cheesecake

Kim Biegacki


Chocolate brownie & cheesecake lovers: This one has your name written on it. It is one rich & decadent dessert. If you are craving something sweet make sure to save this one. It is also very rich with chocolate flavors. My family really enjoyed it. The original recipe comes from a 24 yr old M & M cookbook. I changed several things. I wanted more cheesecake in the middle so I had to alter the cream cheese. I also added a little sugar and another egg. Oh, & changed the amount of M & M's but overall it's more balanced with chocolate & cheesecake. Do you get me? LOL
I hope you enjoy.
