The best ever brownie base of this recipe stems from the Feb 09 Chatelaine magazine where they apparently tested dozens of brownie recipes to conclude that this was the best to which I would agree. I then had to try to make it even better and what could be better than a touch of cheesecake???? The recipe called for 6 squares of semi sweet chocolate however everyone knows that dark chocolate is good for you..so along with the additional dairy benefits of the cream cheese you could consider these brownies practically healthy. Plus the not too sweet dark chocolate has the added benefit to make the brownies enjoyable accompanied with a glass of (also healthy) red wine ;-) Perhaps adding a sprinkle of flax seed and dried cranberries could also qualify them as a meal substitute???? However I have not yet gone that far.
