1 box fudge brownie mix (20 to 22 oz. size) 24 ounces cream cheese, softened 14 ounces can sweetened condensed milk 3 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350. Grease the bottom only of a 9" springform pan.
Prepare brownie mix as package directs 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. 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, if desired.
Great recipe. Easy! I put the mini chips on the brownie layer like one reviewer suggested. I made a caramelly topping of cream, brown sugar, chopped toasted almonds and mini chips stirred in after caramel cooled and put the topping around the outer edge of the cake. A "flower " of Trader Joes dark chocolate petals in the center. Beautiful, professional, yummmmm!

I made this recipe for Thankgiving and it was a hit! No one believed that I made it myself, they all thought it was store bought. Every gathering since I've been asked to make it. This is a great recipe, and easy to follow =)

I didn't make it myself. However, I wasn't a cheesecake fan until this came by my way. It looked too good to pass up. This one had no chips and topped with canned cherries (another thing I wasn't too fond of). It's safe to say this recipe has completely converted me :)
I was a teenager when I ate this. I am glad to find the recipe now in my adult yrs. so I can share it with my family.

I love this recipe it is soooo good. The only thing I do differenty is I put the choc chips on top of the brownie once it been cooked. Its more like a choc layer between the cheesecake and the brownie and its delish!

I made this for a group of college students and they practically licked their plates! Very easy, great flavor - with or without the mini chips.

I made this as a desert for a BBQ I had on a Friday..it was such a hit that I made it again for my sister-in-law's get-together 2 days layer, only this time I omitted the brownies part and just made it as a strawberry cheesecake. Let me tell you, no one believer that I made it! This is an awesome recipe, not hard at all to make, just a little long in cooking time!
