  1. Not sure what went wrong with other reviewers but I made this recipe exactly to the recipes specs and it turned out brilliantly. There was definitely enough cheesecake filling to cover the top of the 8x13 pan I used and it turned out exactly like the photo provided. This was very well received by my - Read more ...
  2. Very disappointed with this recipe. Brownie batter was disproportionate to the cheesecake layer and as such was very thin. The cheesecake layer was also impossible to spread in a complete layer (despite softening) and came out clumpy. Overall the finished product was spongy and chewy; not at all the dense chocolate-y goodness that you expect - Read more ...
  3. I made this for my friend's bday and it was a big hit! Everyone loved it! I even made it a little healthier by using 1/3 fat free cream cheese! Excellent recipe! thanks!
  4. I am not going to lie I am far from a culinary genius however I find it difficult to believe that I screwed up this recipe so bad that my brownies bounced off the floor. The texture was rubbery and chewy. I would not make these again!!
  5. I loved these! I added a 1/2 block more of the cream cheese it was more flavorful...wonderful!
  6. I was not impressed with this. The cream cheese part was very difficult to spread it clumped more than anything and the brownie part came out with a VERY wierd chewy rather disgusting texture. I've never baked with applesauce before so I'm not sure if that's why but I have never had anything turn out - Read more ...
  7. These were okay but the brownie batter was a little runny & the cream cheese part was a little cakey. My kids loved them but I'd prefer using a different recipe.
  8. Made as directed needed something else? Little bland not brownieish enough for what we were looking for. Probably won't make again.
  9. LIGHT VERSION! I wasn't looking for it, since I would substitute the oil for applesauce, eggs for egg whites, and cream cheese for light cream cheese... but awesome! They're amazing. Made them for my girlfriend's birthday and she's trying to lose weight so I didn't want to sabotage her completely. Definitely give this a try... - Read more ...
