Intense! These are a deliciously intense brownie/cheesecake hybrid. The bottom is brownie and it's topped with a thick, rich layer of cheesecake that has been sprinkled with chocolate chips, which sink to the middle during baking creating an almost solid middle layer of chocolate in between the brownie and cheesecake. A half-dozen eggs are needed for this craziness but it's well worth it. The recipe is from the Sweet Melissa cookbook and if you don't have it and love to bake you need it. I sent these with Doug last Monday for his project team and they really liked them. They were perfect with a cup of dark roast coffee.
