In a medium saucepan, melt together the butter and unsweetened chocolate until smooth. Remove from the heat and whisk in the cocoa powder, sugar, and salt (the batter will be really thick and grainy – keep going).

If you haven’t already, break the Kit Kat bars into individual wafers. Gently press the wafers on top of the brownie batter in one layer (you will make 2 rows with 10 wafers each). Set aside while you make the cheesecake layer.

Pour the cheesecake on top of the Kit Kat layer, smoothing it out. Bake 35-40 minutes or until the top is firm but still wiggles a little bit (a toothpick should come out clean). Let cool completely to room temperature then refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight. Let the pan sit at room temperature for 15-30 minutes before cutting. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
