Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownies

Chocolate and Peanut butter combination is my very favorite, add cheesecake and you got me hooked.  When I found this recipe I knew I just had to try it out.  It was delicious.  I thought it could use a little bit more peanut butter but hubby and everyone else thought they were perfect.


Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownies
Adapted from Pillsbury
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1 box brownie mix
Grease 9 x 13 pan. Make brownie mix as directed on box. Spread batter in pan and set aside.
Beat together until smooth:
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened ( I used the less fat version)
1 can (14 oz.)sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup peanut butter
Spoon mixture over top of the brownie mixture.  Spread evenly.  Try to spoon it on in all areas so you just have to smooth it out. 
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until cheesecake layer is set and edges are light golden brown.
Cool on rack for 30 minutes and then refrigerate for 40 minutes.
In a microwavable bowl add:
1 cup chocolate chips ( I used milk chocolate)
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
Microwave on high for 60 seconds or until chips are melted.  Stir after first 30 seconds.
Stir until smooth and spread over cheesecake layer.
Optional: Spread 1 bag of milk chocolate toffee bits over the top of the chocolate layer
Place back in the refrigerator until chocolate layer is set. Cut before chocolate has totally hardened.
Enjoy!
Store covered in the refrigerator.
