Nutella Cheesecake Brownies

There is not too much I can say about this recipe other than YUM! I bought some Nutella the other day when I was at Publix and went searching the internet for something to make with it. I found this recipe posted on Alpine Berry's blog and I am very pleased with the results. I did make a change to the recipe that was posted, and that was to omit the sugar from the cheesecake layer. I wanted the cheesecake layer to retain a bit of the tangy bite that the cream cheese added, and it did.

Yum! These brownies are so decadent!!
