And it comforts us whenever we feel down and weary. Also, it is an excellent compliment to parties, and other special occasions for everyone will adore it. There is a lot of this famous dessert. And what we are tackling today is the Brownie Swirl Cheesecake. It is what it is, a combination of brownie and cheesecake with its beautiful marbling of cheesecake and brownie plus its exquisite taste. Inevitably, every chocolate lover will adore this. So, how do we make one then?
Let us start first with the base, so what we are looking for is a recipe for brownies. If you are looking for a ready-made brownie mix that is very rich and moist, this will be your best bet. It is made of premium chocolates plus other natural ingredients. Thus, making it a very healthy and delicious treat to have. For a brownie mix that is not dry and soggy, they can be your first choice for this recipe.
If you are the person who loves a fudgy brownie mix that already has a texture of a chocolate chip cookie, then this one has it all. This ready-made mix will be a suitable ingredient for a much gooey brownie instead of a moist and rich one. For this one, all you need is just water and butter, mix it all up, and you have yourself the brownie part of the recipe.
Now for the cheese part of the recipe. Of course, it calls in for cream cheese since cheesecakes for that typical kind of cheese. Kraft Philadelphia’s Cream Cheese is your go-to cheese to complete this recipe. It is a creamy and soft cheese that will surely become an excellent component for your brownie mix. Mix this cheese with sugar, vanilla, and eggs and place it on top of the brownie part of the recipe to complete the base.
If you think that the brownie mix is not chocolatey enough for your taste, or wants a chocolate garnish on top of it, then this one is up to your alley. These chocolate discs are perfectly-shaped to look good on top of your recipe. If you want to add more chocolate on your brownie recipe, you can melt these and combine them into the mix
What better way to decorate your recipe is to use whipped cream as a topping or icing of your recipe. It gives a creamy texture as well as an all-around topping which you will surely be fond of. After you have added the cream cheese part to the brownie base and it is thoroughly cooked. You can add this on top together with the chocolate disks for a great presentation.
A wise man I know once said; “There is no such thing as too much chocolate,” and I genuinely believe in that. Let’s say that you want a more bitter bite on your cake to offset that sweetness of the cheesecake part. Then, this one is the answer to that. You can either add these on the brownie mix before baking or include this on the cheesecake part of the recipe. It is up to your imagination on where you want to add this chocolate chips.
And lastly, that whipped cream topping seems boring, right? How we add a little bit of flair to it. These petite and cute mini chocolate chips will surely add that festive vibe on your boring whipped cream topping. Also, you can use this as well as an added ingredient on the batter, either the cheese part of the brownie part, before baking.
There you have it. Those are pretty much all the ingredients you need, plus eggs, butter and of course water too. First of all, prepare the brownie mix based on box instructions and bake it on a tray. Thus, this will serve as a crust for your cheesecake.
For the cheesecake, cream your cheese with sugar, vanilla while gradually adding eggs during mixing. Swirl in melted chocolate discs or chips on the mixture to form marbling (do not overdo the mixing or there will be no marbling). Place the cheese mixture on top of the brownie crust and cook it to perfection.
To prepare, put a dollop of whipped cream on top of each cake slice and top it off with chocolate discs or chips.
And voila, that’s it, your home-made Brownie Swirl Cheesecake. Perfect for desserts or just an afternoon treat with your coffee or tea.
