Ingredients

Brownie Crust:
3 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup unsalted butter, cut in small pieces
1/2 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 oz semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
Filling:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
3 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1-1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup flour
Topping:
3/4 cup sour cream
3 teaspoons sugar


For the crust: Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 9-inch springform pan. Dust with flour. Melt unsweetened chocolate and butter in small saucepan over low heat. Cool. Beat eggs and sugar in medium bowl until slowly dissolving ribbon forms when beaters are lifted, about 4 minutes. Beat in melted chocolate mixture, vanilla, and chopped chocolate. Add flour and baking powder. Mix until just blended - do not overbeat. Spread 1 cup brownie batter over bottom of pan. Bake until firm, about 17 minutes. Cool baked crust in freezer for about 15 minutes. Maintain oven temperature.



For the filling: Blend cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add eggs and sour cream. Add peanut butter and flour. Using small knife, spread remaining brownie batter around the sides of the pan, sealing batter to
