What could be better than a fudgy brownie swirled with homemade cheesecake? Ummmm, not much! These fudgy cheesecake brownies are the perfect balance for brownie and cheesecake lovers. You could even doll them up for a party with some hot fudge drizzled on top. Or you can cut them as extra small squares for a little nibble snack. They also look nice when presented in cupcake liners on a tray. I hope you enjoy these as much as we did!!!
