Santa Fe Valentine's Day Cheesecake Brownies

These homemade Valentine's Day treats are the sweetest way to say "I love you" to everyone special in your life.  Instead of just plain cheesecake and brownies, I took it a step further and made them exceptional for a Santa Fe Valentine's Day. 

Santa Fe Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies Recipe
Serves approximately 12

16 oz cream cheese
1/3 c cocoa powder
1 tsp ancho chile
1/3 c red wine
1/3 c sugar

Cream together above ingredients. Set aside. 

1 1/3 c heavy cream
1/3 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cocoa powder

Whip together above ingredients to stiff peaks and fold within cream cheese mixture. Cool.

for brownies

Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Bake at 350 degrees for twenty minutes.

12 oz semisweet chocolate bar or chips
2 sticks of butter
5 eggs
1 tbs vanilla paste
2 c sugar
1 tsp salt
3 c flour

Present a large dollop (or form with a heart shaped cookie cutter) of cheesecake on top of brownie square and serve with your choice of fruit, caramel, or more chocolate.  You can also use white chocolate instead of cocoa powder like I did below.
