Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake


Brownie Cheesecake with Chocolate Ganache

Made this from a gif recipe. And it's amazing!

Ingredients:
  • 1 Box Off-the-shelf Brownie Mix
  • 24 Oz Cream Cheese (room temperature)
  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 3 Eggs (beaten)
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla
  • 1 Lb Chocolate Chips
  • 2 Cups Heavy Cream (hot)

Directions:

The basic instruction calls for an off-the-shelf brownie mix. You can use your own brownie mix from scratch.

You'll also need a 9" spring form pan. See them here.

Make the brownie layer:

If you're using an off-the-shelf brownie mix, prepare it according to instructions and bake it as the bottom layer in the 9" spring form pan. Then set aside.

Make the cheesecake layer:

In a medium-to-large mixing bowl, add cream cheese and sugar. Mix well. Use an electric handmixer if you have it.

Add eggs and vanilla. Continue to mix well.

Pour on top of brownie layer and flatten. Bake for 50 minutes at 325 deg F.

Make the chocolate ganache:

For the above cheesecake, I cut the ingredients in half. And it still turned out great.

In a medium mixing bowl, add chocolate chips. Add hot heavy cream. Chocolate should melt from the hot cream. If it doesn't, microwave it to melt completely. Mix well.

Once the cheesecake is finished baking, pour ganache on top. Chill and let set for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Better yet, cover it up and refrigerate overnight before serving. See some great cake plates with covers here.
