Easy Cheesecake Brownies You Can Make in Your Apartment Near The Villages, FL

Cheesecake and brownies are two of the most popular desserts there are. So it only makes sense that combining them can be delicious. Here is a recipe for cheesecake brownies that you can whip up in your PepperTree apartment home:

You will need to make brownie batter as well as cheesecake batter.

For the brownie batter you will need:

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup or 4 ounces) unsalted butter, cut into pieces

  • 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour

  • Pinch of salt

For the cheesecake batter you will need:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, well softened

  • 1/3 cup sugar

  • 1 large egg yolk

  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

You will also need ½ cup of semisweet chocolate chips. Now you’re ready to cook!

Make the brownie batter:

  • Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350°F

  • Grease an 8-inch square baking pan

  • Heat butter and chocolate in a 3-quart heavy saucepan over moderately low heat, whisking occasionally to avoid burning, just until melted

  • Remove from heat and whisk in sugar, eggs, vanilla, and a pinch of salt until well combined

  • Whisk in flour until just combined

  • Spread in baking pan

Make the cheesecake batter:

  • Whisk together all ingredients listed above for the cheesecake batter

  • Dollop over brownie batter

Bake the brownies:

  • Use a knife to swirl the cheesecake batter into the brownie batter for a marbled effect

  • Sprinkle chocolate chips on top

  • Bake approximately 35 minutes, or until the center is set

  • Let cool completely

Once the brownies have cooled to nearly room temperature, you can slice them then, or you can even put them in the freezer and later enjoy a chilled cheesecake brownie in your apartment near The Villages, FL.
