Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownies


Three words that can set off a full fledged eating attack: Peanut Butter, Brownies. Cheesecake. Put them together in one dish and I;m done.  Might as well go to Kohls and buy the next size up in jeans.
We made tons of these for catering and in-house.  One bite and you will be hooked!!
