As I promised..

Here's the recipe for the brownie swirl cheesecake! Sorry it took so long, we had a super long day yesterday and I went back to the house and crashed. Now get your butts in the kitchen and make this bad boy!

Brownie Crust:

1/2 C butter
4 squares, unsweetened chocolate
1 1/2 C sugar
2 eggs
1/4 C milk
1 TS pure vanilla
1 C flour
1/2 C mini semi sweet chocolate chips

3 8 oz packages cream cheese, room temperature
1 TB pure vanilla
3/4 C sugar
3 eggs
1/2 C sour cream
12 mini twix, chopped (you don't have to do this, I just added it because it's Jason's fav!)
Pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Spray a 9 inch spring form pan with cooking spray, set aside. In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt together the chocolate and the butter about 60-75 seconds, stir. Return to cook another 15 seconds and stir again. Repeat this as needed. Cool for about 3 minutes, then add chocolate mixture to a large bowl with the sugar and eggs. Mix until blended, add in milk and vanilla. In a separate small bowl whisk together the flour and salt. Add in 3 batches to the chocolate mixture, blending well after each batch. Fold in the chocolate chips. Spoon into pan, and bake for 20 minutes.

While that is baking, make your filling.

Combine the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Beat until well combined. Add the eggs in one at a time. Throw in the pinch of salt. and blend well. Fold in the sour cream and mix. Chop up the twix, and throw it on top of the semi baked brownie crust. Then spoon the filling mixture onto the brownie crust, right in the middle. The edges of the brownie will rise, and this is where you take a butter knife, spoon, etc and start swirling the cheesecake and brownie mixture together, more towards the middle you want the edges to have more of the brownie batter. Bake at 325 for 40 -45 minutes or until the center is slightly set. Cool on wire rack for one hour. Then chill for an additional 4 hours minimum, overnight is preferred.
