- Preheat the oven to 350˚F (180˚C). Grease a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray.
- Combine the melted butter and 3 cups (600 g) of sugar in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Let sit for a minute to cool before adding the eggs, to avoid cooking them, then add 6 eggs and 2 tablespoons of vanilla and whisk to combine.
- Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Whisk until just combined.
- Use a spatula to fold in the chocolate chips.
- Pour the batter onto the prepared baking sheet, spreading to the edges with a spatula. Bake for 25 minutes, or until brownies appear be nearly fully cooked.
- While the brownies are beginning to bake, beat together the cream cheese and the remaining sugar in a medium bowl with an electric hand mixer until there are no lumps.
- Add the remaining egg and remaining teaspoon of vanilla, beating until evenly combined.
- After 25 minutes, remove the brownies from the oven and use the bottom of a ¼-cup (60 ml) measuring cup to make 24 evenly spaced indentations in the brownies.
- Carefully fill the indentations with cheesecake filling. Top each with a chocolate sandwich cookie.
- Return to the oven for 15 more minutes, until the cheesecake filling is set.
- Let cool, then cut into squares and serve.
