It would be MOST helpful if the "1 pkg Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge Brownie Mix" was more specific. The only one our Kroger had was the pkg to make 13x9. So, I went with it & followed the directions given here. Way TOO much brownie & way TOO little cheesecake! Big disappointment, especially since I needed to get them in the mail for son's birthday. Please be more specific.

oh no i forgot the oil, will see what happens. Also why does the side say 1/3 c oil and recipe 1/4 c oil?

Was surprised how easy this was to make. And very decadent. My family just inhaled this! Thanks!

3oz of cream cheese? That doesn't seem like very much, the standard package is 250g which is almost 9oz...weird?

I have made this. You really don't need the flour in the cream cheese recipe.

I wonder if you could use applesauce instead of the oil?
