Swirl Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies!

Is there much more to say….?

I think it is. Cheesecake is for a lactose intolerant person the absolute enemy, usually, but thanks to the milk industry in Germany, they found a way how lactose intolerant people are able to enjoy milk products. If I did understand it right, they add the enzyme which divides the lactose sugar in it’s two sugars already. So people with the lactose problem don’t have that enzyme, that’s what makes it so hard to digest. (I hope that makes sense to you). Whatever! I was able to make and EAT that Cheesecake Brownie because I used lactose free Cream cheese. Hurray!

The texture was delicious rich, creamy and moist. Not at all dry.
