Brownie Cheesecake Bars Brownie Cheesecake Bars
Makes 24-36 brownies

Preheat oven to 350 degF. Prepare brownie mix as package directs, stir in nuts. Spread into a well greased 13x9 inch baking pan. In mixer bowl, beat cheese, margarine, and cornstarch until fluffy. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk, then egg and vanilla until smooth. Pour evenly over brownie batter. (FYI: mer baked the brownies first then rebaked it w/ cheesecake topping because she misread the directions. It worked fine.) Bake 35-40 minutes or until top is slightly browned. Cool; chill. Garnish as desired. Cut into bars. Store covered in refridgerator.

mer's variations: Turns out you can make just the cheesecake topping part.

  • Bake it separately (about 25-35 minutes?). We topped it with canned cherry pie filling, yum.
  • Or, bake a chocolate cake mix (thin, and I cut the top off to make it flat on top), after it's done, pour the cheesecake batter on top, bake some more. We also topped it with cherry pie filling. This was a pretty good combo.
