Mehendi Inspired Tuxedo Brownies

Inspired by my first attempt at mehendi (seen here), I decided to decorate these tuxedo brownies.  What are tuxedo brownies, you ask?  They are a layer of brownie on the bottom and a layer of cheesecake on top.  Yum.  Maybe instead of mehendi patterns, I will make heart designs for Valentines Day in a few days.

Tuxedo Brownies

  • Brownie Layer
    • 1 pouch brownie mix
    • oil, water, and eggs according to brownie mix instructions
  • Cheesecake Layer
    • 2 cups (16 oz) cream cheese, softened
    • 2/3 cup sugar
    • 2 eggs
  • Preheat oven to 325deg F
  • In bowl, blend brownie ingredients according to brownie mix instructions
  • Spoon batter into lightly greased 13x9x2 in pan
  • In another bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth
  • Add 2 eggs and continue to mix until blended well
  • Gently spoon cheesecake mixture over brownie batter and spread evenly
  • Bake 40-45 minutes, but keep an eye on them
  • Cut into squares after cooling
  • Decorate with red frosting (as I did here) or melted chocolate
