Cheesecake is like pizza. There aren’t any bad ones.

But there is still a hierarchy. Some are at the top, and some probably aren’t worth the stomach space. This is true for both cheesecake and pizza.

With equal parts of each dessert and a chocolate drizzle on top, Cheesecake Brownies at the top of my list.

MY LATEST RECIPES

I feel like I should warn you: the cheesecake filling has 4 boxes of cream cheese in it.

That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make these! That only means you *may* have to watch how big you cut your bars. They are rich and mighty, so a little goes a long way.

Having said that, no matter how small you cut them, I’ll eat my weight in Cheesecake Brownies any day. Seriously, that brownie layer cuts through the richness so well, it’s really easy to just keep eating them!

So pack your willpower, too.

Ingredients

  • 1 package brownie mix
  • 4 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 squares semi-sweet baking chocolate melted, cooled slightly

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a foil-lined  9-inch by 13-inch baking dish. Prepare the brownie mix according to the package directions and pour into the prepared pan. Bake until top of brownie is shiny and center is almost set, about 15 minutes. 

  2. Meanwhile, in a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla on medium speed until well mixed. Add sour cream and mix thoroughly. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed until blended. Pour the mixture over the partially baked brownie, filling the mixture to almost the top of the pan. 

  3. Bake until center is almost set, about 40 minutes. Remove from oven and run a knife or metal spatula around the rim of the baking dish to loosen cake. Cool and then refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Allow to stand 30 minutes at room temperature prior to serving. Remove from the pan using the foil as a handle. 

  4. Drizzle with chocolate and let stand until chocolate is firm. Cut into 16 pieces and serve.

  1. A match made in heaven! To greats that play well together

  2. Just brought these for a Valentines Day office gathering this morning. They got rave reviews, and I was asked to bring them again for the next pot luck. I will DEFINITELY make these again! I love that they have a good amount of cheesecake filling on top. So many other recipes I’ve tried, the cheesecake doesn’t come through, because there’s not enough of it, but not so with this excellent recipe. I used a glass pan and they ended up a bit overbaked in the corners. I would try my Air Bake pan next time and stick to the recommended time (my oven tends to run a smidge cooler, so I usually increase time on most recipes, but shouldn’t have on this one. Instead of the Chocolate drizzle on top, I dolloped some semi-melted strawberry fruit spread in regular intervals on top, then dragged a butter knive lightly through the red dollops to try and emulate a heart shape. The design wasn’t perfect, but still gave it that Valentine’s Day flair I was after.
