Beat peanut butter, cream cheese and vanilla in bowl until smooth. Add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time. Mix in cream and then flour. Transfer 1/3 cup cheesecake batter to small bowl and set aside. Spread remaining cheesecake batter over brownie layer in pan.

Place chocolate in small microwave-safe bowl and microwave on low in 10-second intervals until chocolate begins to melt, stir until smooth. Mix chocolate into reserved 1/3 cup cheesecake batter. Drop chocolate batter by heaping spoonfuls on top of cheesecake layer. Using chopstick or thin knife, swirl chocolate batter in figure-eight type pattern through white cheesecake layer.

Bake brownies about 35 minutes, or until edges of cheesecake layer are puffed and center is set (check with toothpick). Cool brownies in pan. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.

Cut brownies into squares. Yields about 25 brownies.

    Hi me and my partner made this the other day but it didn’t come out right we followed it to a tea. We was thinking that we should cook the brownie before putting the cheesecake mix on but your recipe reads that you should cook it all at the same time please help because it looks really nice and I want to make it again
