    Place chopped chocolate into a heatproof bowl. Melt butter in a sauce pan over medium heat and pour over chocolate. Let sit for 5 minutes until chocolate starts to melt. Mix well until chocolate has completely melted.

    Set 9 tablespoons of cheesecake dollops onto the brownie batter in an even pattern. Spread out dollops into ghost-like shapes with a spoon and a bamboo skewer.
  8. Bake

    Transfer reserved brownie batter into a small plastic bag, snip off one corner, and pipe 2 eyes and a mouth onto each cheesecake ghost. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  9. Cool

    Bake brownies in the center of the oven until edges are lightly golden brown and the center is just set, 35 to 40 minutes. Because these are very fudgy, chewy style brownies, a toothpick will not come out clean, so that's not a reliable test for this recipe.
  10. Cut

    Allow brownies to cool completely in the pan before transferring them to a plate and cutting them into squares.
  11. It is important to use unsweetened chocolate. The cheesecake ghost component of the recipe makes a few tablespoons extra. That can be swirled into the bottom of the brownie pan, or simply added to the top wherever it will fit.
