Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownies

by Heather on June 7, 2010

Every Sunday, either Alex or I teach a sunday school class at church. The other week, it was my turn to teach and the lesson was on developing our talents. SO, I thought it would be fun to bring a treat. I got up extra early Sunday morning and decided brownies would be easy enough.  But they had to be different in some way since brownies can sometimes seem like a last-minute, thrown together type of treat (although they always taste good to me no matter how they’re made!). Plus, any excuse to add peanut butter to a brownie works for me.

I found a recipe that sounded enticing on Tracey’s Culinary Adventures, and I thought I’d give it a shot. Let’s just say that I was able to snag about half of a brownie for a necessary taste test,  but that’s all that was left. The cream cheese made the brownies extra soft and moist! Sometimes, I’ll doctor up a boxed brownie mix by melting some peanut butter and swirling it into the batter before baking, since I never can have enough peanut butter in my life. But, this cream cheese/peanut butter combo is SO much smoother and silkier- definitely worth the extra bit of effort.

Since I didn’t make any adaptations to this recipe, I’ll just post the link to the recipe here and let Tracey take care of the rest :)

Those look delicious. I love peanut butter, but never had it as a brownie. I think I just gained 5 pounds looking at them!

These brownies are amazing! Better than any of those fresh $3 brownies you buy at any grocery stores bakery. They would be perfect for a packaged gift item to send to someone special or to have for a get-together. Guaranteed to get you addicted.
