How To Make cheesecake peanut butter brownies w/ graham crust

  • 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.
  • It's almost too pretty to cut into, but you'll be glad you did!

    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! :)
