I don't make desserts too often. I just can't. If I do, I eat them. A lot of them. It just isn't pretty.
I've had a series of events lately. Family picnics, BBQ's, party's, vacation, that sorta stuff. Well, events like these enable you to break the no dessert rule. I pretty much smashed that rule to pieces. I've been making desserts like crazy!
This one was awesome. I got this from One Crazy Cookie. I failed to get some photos. I managed to snap a shot while cutting them, then proceeded to take them to my dad's house for a party. They were all eaten in record time and I never snatched a picture. In fact, I barely even tasted them! When I was cutting them, I just ate a small corner of bliss before whisking them away.
Speaking of cutting. Take her advice and cut them before the top has set all the way. I failed to do this which resulted in the top coming off. It hardens into one big piece and it didn't cut too well. No one seemed to mind. The pan was literally licked clean. (I admit to snatching a few broken, lost pieces of topping).
So head on over to her site to see the awesome pictures of this fantastic dessert!! You won't be sorry!!
Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownies
Adapted from One Crazy Cookie
1 box brownie mix
1 - 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used chunky)
1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi sweet)
2 tsp. oil
1 cup toffee heath bits
Make brownie mix as directed on package. Spray 13 x 9 pan with cooking spray and pour brownie batter in it. Combine softened cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk and peanut butter. Spoon evenly over the brownie mix and spread as evenly as possible. Bake for 35 - 40 minutes at 350. Cool.
Combine chocolate chips and oil and microwave until softened. Pour over the peanut butter layer. Sprinkle the top with the toffee heath bits. Cool in refrigerator. Cut before the top chocolate layer completely hardens.

I ended up cutting these in 7 rows across and 5 rows down for 35 bars. Totally worth every calorie!
