Cheesecake Brownies

I was looking for something easy and delicious to take to a picnic this past weekend and thought that these little Cheesecake Brownies (courtesy of What's Cooking in the Orange Kitchen) were perfect. I cheated and used boxed brownies because I was short on time, but they were still fantastic.

  • 1 batch of brownie batter (boxed or homemade) with 1 cup of chocolate chips added
  • 1 block (8 oz) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 and grease two muffin tins (for a total of 24 brownies).

Combine the cream cheese, vanilla, egg, and sugar in the bowl of a mixer and beat until well combined.

Fill each well half way with brownie batter. Then add 2-3 tbsp of cheesecake filling to each. Top that with a dollop of brownie batter.

Swirl the brownie batter and cheesecake filling with a toothpick. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.


  1. These were fantastic!!

  2. Cheesecake brownies are the best.

  3. What a great idea for a quick treat. I always feel like I'm rushing to something and these are perfect because of the use of the mix.

    Thanks for the tip!
