  5. Scoop ½ of the brownie batter into the tin and spread evenly. Add the cheesecake mixture on top and even out carefully. Add the remaining ½ of the batter on top and use a toothpick or fork to create swirls.
  6. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and place in the oven for 35-40 minutes (depending on how gooey you want them). Let cool down for 5-10 minutes before cutting and serving.
