Brownie Cheesecake Cups
I’ve made cup desserts with cookie mix and cake mix. I thought I’d try brownie mix and see what happened. The result? This chewy, moist and double chocolatey bite of heaven.
At first, I wasn’t sure if it would work. After 10 minutes of being in the oven, I went to deflate the center of the cup and not much happened. I put back in another five minutes and tried again. This time, I could see the cup starting to take shape. I knew then that it would probably be ok and I wouldn’t have wasted a perfectly good brownie mix.
The filling is cream cheese and Eagle Brand chocolate sauce. It’s smooth, creamy and sweet.
Brownie Cheesecake Cups
Double chocolate Brownie Cheesecake Cups recipe made from a box of brownie mix. It’s easy to make and a delight to eat!
- 1 box brownie mix (or your fave brownie recipe)
- 1 package cream cheese, room temperature
- 4 tbsp icing sugar (also known as powdered sugar)
- 3/4 cup Eagle Brand chocolate sauce
- chocolate chips, garnish
- Preheat oven according to directions on brownie mix.
- Prepare brownies according to recipe or package directions. Place brownie batter into a greased muffin tin to form a cup. Bake for 10 minutes.
- Remove tray from oven when cups are rising. Take a small spoon and deflate the centers of the cups while leaving the sides of the brownie cup untouched. Put back in the oven and bake for another 5 minutes.
- Again, remove from oven and with a small spoon, deflate the centers of the cups while leaving the sides of the cookie cup untouched.
- Place back in the oven again and continue to check them every five minutes and deflate the middle with a spoon to give them a cup shape. Mine took a bit over 20 minutes before they were baked completely.
- Remove from oven and let cool completely.
- In a mixing bowl, whip cream cheese, icing sugar and chocolate sauce together.
- Add about 1 tbsp to each brownie cup. You may have leftover filling which you can save for your next batch or use it as a topping for another dessert. Top with chocolate chips,if desired.
I shared this recipe on my personal Facebook profile and one of my friends said that she saw Mickey Mouse when she looked at my pictures. I guess I put the chocolate chips on top in a way that looks like Mickey. I didn’t intend it that way, but I can see what she means now! I had a little chuckle over that.
