Line parchment paper in a 9" x 13" pan allowing 2 inches to hang over sides and spray it with cooking spray.
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
Put butter, chocolate, and cocoa in a heatproof medium bowl set over a pan of simmering water; stir until butter and chocolate are melted. Let cool slightly.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl; set aside.
Put sugar, eggs, and vanilla in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, and beat on medium speed until pale, about 4 minutes. Add chocolate mixture; beat until combined. Add flour mixture; beat, scraping down sides of bowl, until well incorporated.
Pour batter into prepared pan; smooth top with a rubber spatula. Bake for 15 minutes, we do not want to bake the brownie completely as it will continue to bake with the cream cheese layer.
Add all the cheesecake layer ingredients in the bowl of your mixer and mix for about 3 to 5 minutes until cream cheese is smooth.
Pour cream cheese mixture over the semi baked brownie and smooth the top with a rubber spatula.
Bake for another 15 to 20 minutes.
Let cool completely.
Rice Krispies layer
In a large pan add the chocolate chips, peanut butter and nutella and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally. Cook until the peanut butter and chocolate chips are completely melted. Stir in the rice krispies and make sure all the cereal is fully coated.
Spread the rice krispies mixture on top of the cream cheese layer and refrigerate for a couple hours.
Cut into pieces and serve.
