I made these for my mother-in-law as a treat, the whole family loved them! The topping really makes the recipe. Just like with any brownie recipe, you really must "under-bake" them. My in-laws' new oven took only 29 minutes, my old, inefficient one, 31. These are low-cal enough that we each had two and didn't feel bad about it at all! That was a real treat!
Cream Cheese Brownies

This is a GREAT recipe. I have made it for company a few times and everyone loves it. I even used fat free cream cheese. I bake them for about 5 minutes less than the recipe calls for to keep them gooey.

Pretty good. The brownies are very cake-like, not fudgy like I usually prefer, but still tasty. The cream cheese topping was great, though. Just like cheesecake. Step-by-step photos on my blog: http://me-myself-and-pie.blogspot.com/2009/10/cream-cheese-brownies.html

Sorry, but its on my blog titled "Sucky brownie disaster". My kids wouldn't even eat them. I even had to make a "failure" stamp for my website http://www.chefwife.com/Recipe_blog/Entries/2010/7/24_Entry_3.html

Made these for my wife for Valentine's. Honestly, I was hoping they would be better. They were very cake-like and not very moist. If you try to eat one without milk, you might just die of dehydration. My wife is a chocoholic, and I ended up throwing half of these away after they set out too long. Will not make this recipe again.

I was a little apprehensive b/c of the reviews about being dry, etc. But, I decided to make them and try for myself & I'm glad I did; they were delicious! I should mention that I did add an additional tablespoon of butter (b/c of the dry comments) and like cheese cake, these taste better completely cooled or better yet the next day.

Great recipe! I added chocolate chips to make it my own and it is fabulous!

I do agree with others that this was drier than I would have liked, though the chocolate flavor was very yummy. Might add mini chocolate chips in the future, but I would make it again.

This was the worst brownie recipe I have every had!! I just cooked this and made sure I followe the recipe to a "T" I even spent over an hour preparing it, I even added the extra Tablespoon that one of the other reviewers suggested to make them moist. That didnt work at all. The brownie tastes so bland and is more of a cake then a brownie. I will never make this brownie again.

I tried the topping with donna hay brownies mix and it was good, except I think it took much longer in baking, all rest is very nice....
