Snickers Cheesecake Brownies

My husband had a stressful week in St. Louis and his favorite candy bar is snickers and he adores cheesecake so………….Oh heavenly welcome home day! These are divine. You should definitely NOT skip the ice water bath for the brownie layer. It makes for a very fudgy experience. This is super easy to make. Enjoy!

Preparation: Heat oven to 400 degrees. Cover 8×8 pan with baking spray.
Brownie Layer:
8 T. unsalted butter
4 0z. unsweetened chocolate
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 t. vanilla
1/4 t. salt
2 large eggs
1/2 cup flour
Cheesecake Layer:
1 large egg
1 T. vanilla
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup plus 2 T. powdered sugar
8 fun size snickers, coarsely chopped*
1. Place butter and chocolate in a double boiler or a bowl over simmering water. Stir frequently until mixture is melted. Remove chocolate mixture from heat and stir in sugar, vanilla and salt.
2. Add the eggs one at a time, stirring until each is incorporated before adding the next. Stir in flour and beat with a wooden spoon until mixture is glossy about 1 minute.
3. Scrape the batter into the pan and bake for 20 minutes, or until the brownie starts to pull away from the sides of pan. While brownies are baking prepare ice bath. Fill a pan with ice cubes and water 3/4 inch deep. When the brownies are done baking, remove the pan from the oven and place it in the water bath. Allow brownies to cool completely in the water bath.
4. Place cheesecake ingredients (except snickers) in a bowl and mix to combine. Pour on top of cooled brownie and bake for 25-30 minutes or until set. Cool to warm then press chopped snickers into cheesecake layer. Keep refrigerated.
*I used 13 bars for complete coverage.
