Fudge Brownie Cheesecake

I just gotta say, this cheesecake needs no introduction. For rizzle.

Fudgy Brownie Cheesecake, a brownie crust

Fudge. Brownie. Cheesecake. I originally got the idea from A Dash of Sanity for her Fudge Brownie Red Velvet Cheesecake. It looked so mouth watering, I wanted to try it myself. We have to cut out dyes, so I changed it up just a little.

Delicious Fudge Brownie Cheesecake topped with ripe strawberries

I just love this recipe. There are no weird ingredients, no slaving in the kitchen or waiting forever for the cheesecake to bake or set up. It’s velvety. It’s rich. It’s fudgy.

Confession time. (Let me just ponder a moment as to why most of my confessions have to deal with food…)

Ok. Back to the confession.

I don’t love graham cracker crusts. This one is made of brownie, people. Brownie!

I know, you’re saying, quit talking. Just gimme the recipe.

Well, here you go.

Yield:

Fudge Brownie Cheesecake

Fudge Brownie Cheesecake

Ingredients

  • 1 box brownie mix (plus ingredients to make it)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 12 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 cups frozen non-dairy whipped topping, thawed
  • Strawberries

Instructions

  1. In a spring form pan, pour in ¾ of the prepared brownie mix. (Pour the rest in a smaller pan and bake later. Bake until cooked, and cool completely.
  2. In a small bowl, microwave the chocolate chips for thirty seconds and stir. Microwave in 10 second increments until chips are totally melted and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat together cream cheese, sugar and butter until smooth and creamy.
  4. While mixing, slowly add in the melted chocolate.
  5. Mix in the whipped topping.
  6. Spread on top of cooled brownies.
  7. Let set for at least 30 minutes.
  8. Garnish with fresh strawberries.

 

The strawberries really make this dessert. It’s all creamy and rich and delicious.

Strawberries are the perfect finishing touch for this fudgy cheesecake

But put those strawberries on top, and it adds a fresh, tart layer that will blow your mind.

I see that this calls for whipped topping...is this pre-wired (like nutriwhip) or something that is frozen, has to thaw, and THEN be whipped...or frozen, thawed, and added as a liquid? There have been many questions about this in my Facebook chatter...need to know for several people waiting breathlessly to try it! Thanks for your help.
