Mocha Chocolate Cheesecake Squares

Ok, now on to the good stuff! These little squares pack a big punch of coffee flavour! They are rich and more-ish, as my mum would say. I ran out of chocolate-covered coffee beans, which are supposed to be on top of each square, but I don't think we missed them. If you like the taste of mocha and enjoy cheese-cake, I think you'd give these delicate squares a thumbs-up.

GETTING READY

MAKING

9. Stir in the eggs and beat until creamy and soft. Slowly stir in the flour and continue beating.
10. Add coffee liqueur and beat the batter well. Once done, remove the baking tray from the refrigerator and apply the cheesecake filling evenly over the top of the chilled brownie.
11. Bake this in the preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes.
