Ingredients

Cheesecake Batter

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 egg + 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon flour

Brownie Batter

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream OR half and half
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 and line an 8x8 inch pan with foil and spray well with cooking spray.
