Chocolate. Cheesecake. Brownies. Yes, you read that right. They are 3 treats that I love on their own, so when I saw this recipe over at my friend Lizzy’s That Skinny Chick Can Bake! I knew these brownies would taste amazing. How awesome is it to combine three scrumptious desserts into one?? What you get is hard to describe, it has to be tasted. It is like an explosion of chocolate in your palate and the textures are so complex that your brain gets a bit confused (though I think that happens because they are so good that the brain stops working all together): the cheesecake layer is smooth and creamy and the brownie layer is moist and cakey. And it all tastes of… chocolate. Need I say more?? Yum! Thank you so much Lizzy for yet another fantastic recipe, you will always be the Queen of chocolate desserts to me! :-) Enjoy!
