Preheat oven 180c | 360f. Spray a 8×8 inch baking pan with cooking spray and put aside. Throw ALL brownie ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Wipe down the sides with a spatula and blend for a further minute. Set aside to make cheesecake. Whisk cheesecake ingredients in a separate bowl until lump free. Pour brownie batter into prepared pan and even out with a spatula. Spoon cheesecake batter over top, and gently spread until even over the brownie batter. Top with chocolate chips and Reese’s chips.
