Yep...I have officially taken this recipe over! haha. Although, as the story goes, Mom got it in her Family Home Evening Group as a dessert. Years later, she mentioned it to Kitty and her daughter(Julie...who had actually originally submitted this dessert to the group)...and Julie had no recollection of having made it ... nor her mom. And they asked for the recipe since Mom raved about it and told them that I make it all the time. Anyway...it is now:
Dawn's Chocolate Chip Brownie Cheese Cake
1 pkg. Brownie mix (8x8 size)
3 - 8oz packages of cream cheese, softened
1 can sweetened condensed milk
