Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies

My two favorite foods have combined and made the most declines dessert. These Cheesecake Brownies are by far, my favorite brownie recipe. I dare say they are the BEST brownie recipe, out there. You need to try these.

Cheesecake and chocolate are always favorites at our house. This recipe puts the two of them together perfectly.

I have loved cheesecake from a young age, and it has always been my favorite dessert. I have also always had a love for brownies. So when I came across this recipe, it was fate.

I knew that this recipe, would be my new favorite food, and sure enough, it is still my number one dessert of choice.

If you have a sweet tooth, this is the next recipe you need to make. Don’t let them intimidate you, they are so easy to make, and full of delicious brownie and cheesecake flavor.

You’re family and friends will thank you too. That is, if you share them. No judgement if you keep them to yourself.

Is there a no-bake cheesecake layer I could make instead?

If you are running low on time, you could easily make a no-bake cheesecake layer.

However, you still need to cook the brownies, to be sure they are cooked all the way through.

You then need to let them cool completely, before adding the cheesecake layer, or else it will melt the cheesecake layer, and ruin the texture.

If you are looking for a no-bake cheesecake recipe, we recommend trying our Low Fat No Bake Cheesecake recipe. It is so easy to make, and spreads great over brownies.

We do recommend the baked cheesecake, because it is a little thicker and has a more cheesecake texture, but the no bake is more creamy and soft. Both would be delicious.

How to get a clean cut brownie:

There are three things to know to get a perfectly clean-cut brownie.

  1. Cool your brownies completely before cutting (chilled in the refrigerator is even better!).
  2. Use a sharp knife. A lot of problems in the kitchen can be solved by using a really good knife.
  3. Run your knife under warm-hot water before cutting.
  4. Wipe your knife on a paper towel, or cutting board edge, after each cut if frosting has accumulated.
  5. You may need to re-heat your knife in the hot water throughout the cutting process, for best results.
