Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownie Babies

I love to try out new recipes no matter if they are ones I created in my head, ones I found on-line or in a  cookbook. Over the years, I have tried recipes from a lot of chefs, one who seems to match my cooking style is Rachael Ray. As a mother, you've got to appreciate the concept of a 30 Minute Meal! Rachael Ray often says that her recipes are just methods. She encourages her viewers to take her recipes and make them their own. I "Lori-ize" almost everything I cook, tailoring the recipe to my families taste. I decided to combine these two ideas and what you see here is the result. Each week I'll create a meal based on a recipe and let you know what we thought. I will give you the original recipe and let you know how I "Lori-ized" it.  Hope you enjoy Tasty Tuesday!

We had a football game this past Saturday, and since Richard's birthday was on Sunday I offered to make the desert.  I pulled out a few new recipes and let Richard pick what he wanted me to make.  He choose Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownie Babies, I pulled this out of Kraftfoods magazine.

I made this recipe pretty much exactly.  I did decide to leave off the Cool Whip and cherry since we had to pack them up to take to the game.  For the brownie mix, I used a dark chocolate brownie mix, but you can use any brand, flavor, whatever you want.

These came out pretty good.  I thought they needed more peanut butter flavor, but others thought the balance was pretty even.  Many people ate more than one, so I guess that is a good sign.

I think if I made them again, I'd use a bit more peanut butter.  I would also make 12 instead of 20 so that I could put more brownie on top of the peanut butter mixture or try to swirl them together or something.
