Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Microwave chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add 1-1/2 cups of the sugar; mix well.
  2. Add 2 of the eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Add milk and 1 tsp. of the vanilla; mix well. Combine flour and salt. Gradually add to chocolate mixture, mixing after each addition just until blended. Spread evenly into greased and floured 9-inch springform pan. Bake 25 min.
  3. Beat cream cheese, remaining 3/4 cup sugar and remaining 1 tsp. vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add sour cream; mix well. Add remaining 3 eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Pour over brownie layer in pan (Filling will come almost to top of pan.)
  4. Bake 55 min. to 1 hour or until center is almost set. Run knife or metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim of pan. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Let stand at room temperature 30 min. before serving. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.

This is really nice. The cheesecake layer baked perfectly, no cracks. But I only baked for 45 minutes and let the cake sit in the oven for 15 minutes more.

Oh man...this is delicious! This is one of those recipes that people have already asked me to make again. It was sooo good. I baked the brownie layer for about 5-10 minutes less than the recipe called for and I also baked the cheesecake layer for less time as well. I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese (neufchatel...sp?) and it was still super rich. Will definitely make this again!

I've seen this recipe before, except instead of making the brownies from scratch it called for using a mix. It turns out so good, and is much less time consuming! You just have to bake the brownie layer for the time of a 9x9 pan on the box. I always decorate it with a ring of sliced kiwi around the edge and cherry pie filling in the middle. Perfect for Christmas.
