A simple prepared brownie mix forms the crust for this delicious cheesecake from Liz. It's quite easy to prepare and bake, and it makes an impressive cheesecake.

Use a Jiffy mix or similar mix for the cheesecake, or use about half of a full size brownie mix and cut added water, oil, and eggs by half.


  • 8 ounces (Jiffy or similar) brownie mix , plus egg and water as directed on package
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 16 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips, melted


Grease bottom of 9-inch springform pan then dust with flour. Prepare basic brownie mix as directed on package; spread batter evenly into springform pan. Bake at 350° F (180° C/Gas Mark 4)  for 15 minutes.

Combine cream cheese, sugar and vanilla; mix at medium speed on electric handheld mixer until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.

Transfer about 1/3 of the cream cheese batter to another bowl. Pour the 2/3 of the mixture over brownie layer in pan.

Mix melted chocolate with remaining 1/3 of cream cheese batter, then spoon over the cream cheese mixture. Cut chocolate batter through cheese and chocolate mixtures several times to achieve a marbled affect.

Bake at 350° F (180° C/Gas Mark 4) 35 minutes. Loosen cake from rim of pan; cool before removing rim of pan.

Chill. Garnish with whipped cream, if desired.
