I made this recipe a few weeks ago and it was a nightmare. I made it exactly as it says and the cheesecake layer never set. I baked it for as long as it said and it wasn't set. I baked it for 15 minutes after that and it still didn't set. I kept putting it in for 15 minutes then checking on it and it would not set. I baked it for about 45 minutes over what it said, it still did not set. It was like water. I then put it in the fridge and kept it there all night. The next morning it still was not set but I ate it anyway. The only reason I gave this recipe 2 stars instead of 1 is because it tasted good. I will not be making this again and do not recommend making this recipe.


This was a disappointing recipe for me. I was expecting a fudgy brownie layer and a creamy cheesecake layer, but both layers were kind of dry and cakey and not very sweet. I would look for a different recipe rather than make this again.
