“This is a simple dessert to prepare but looks fancy and tastes divine. I used the brownie mix that includes chocolate syrup but you could use any one that is intended for an 8x8 pan. I feel that this is best used within 3 days of preparing. Cook time does not include the cooling time for the brownie layer or the chill time for the cheesecake layer. ( If your brownie mix calls for different measurements for water, oil and eggs go ahead and use those instructions for baking the brownie layer.)”
