Heat oven to 325°F.
Line 13x9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides; spray with cooking spray. Prepare brownie batter as directed on package; pour into prepared pan. Bake 18 to 20 min. or until top is shiny and center is almost set. (Brownie layer will not be done.)

Spoon Neufchatel mixture over brownie layer in pan. (Pan will almost be full.)
Bake 40 min. or until center is almost set. Cool. Refrigerate 4 hours.
Remove dessert from refrigerator about 30 min. before serving; let stand at room temperature to soften slightly. Meanwhile, melt chocolate as directed on package. Use foil handles to lift cheesecake from pan; drizzle with chocolate. Let stand until chocolate is firm.
