Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies Recipe

These cheesecake brownies are a real crowd pleaser! We've been asked so many times for the recipe that we thought we'd let you all in on the 'secret' recipe. If you’re in a rush, use the standard chocolate brownie recipe without the cheesecake topping for deliciously gooey chocolate brownies every time.

We serve these fudgey brownies at almost every Pretty as a picnic event with lots of delicious berries. We really hope you enjoy them as much as we do! Let us know how you get on and be sure to tag @pretty_as_a_picnic to be featured.
