1 (19.8 or 21.5 ounce) box fudge brownie mix
24 ounces cream cheese
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the bottom only of a 9-inch
springform pan. Prepare brownie mix as per package instructions for
chewy brownies. Spread evenly in the prepared pan. Bake for 35
minutes or until set.
Meanwhile, in a large mixer bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy.
Gradually beat in the sweetened condensed milk. Add eggs and the
vanilla; mix well. Stir in the mini chips at the last minute. Pour
into prepared pan.
Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees F. Bake for 50 minutes or
until center is set. Cool. Chill thoroughly. Remove side of
springform pan (you may want to use a warm knife to separate the
cheesecake from the sides of the pan). Garnish with your favorite
whipped cream topping and then with a few leftover mini chips
sprinkled over the top.
