Brownie Batter Cheesecakes with Fudge Brownie Crust-2

They found our car……..

Brownie Batter Cheesecakes with Fudge Brownie Crust-3

Get this, at the rec center! How crazy is that? The person who stole the car, who we think may have been a women or a young teen because of how small the footprints in the snow were and how close the driver’s seat was to the wheel (they did have to know how to drive a manual transmission vehicle though) put it right back where they got it from. Same parking lot, same parking spot! So weird!

So at least the car is fine, no harm done.

Well, I take that back they also took the only designer thing I own. A pair of aviator Coach sunglasses that I LOVED. My grandma had bought them for me over the summer (remember we love to shop), they were not even a year old. Major BUMMER. But we got the car back so that’s obviously pretty awesome. I guess the person who stole it felt bad, or maybe they just want my sunglasses, who knows. Pretty bazaar, right?

I guess that is what you get when your car gets stolen in Summit County, Colorado. It get’s returned.

If we were in any other city I am not sure that would have been the case. Well, it might have been returned, but I am not sure it would still look the same. Really, who returns a car they stole?


Brownie Batter Cheesecakes with Fudge Brownie Crust-6

Alright, I am done talking about stolen cars. Geez, I sound like I just came off the set of the Gone in 60 Seconds movie. I really need to stop… now.

Lets talk brownie batter. That is so much more fun, oh and delicious!

Brownie Batter Cheesecakes with Fudge Brownie Crust-7

You know how when you are making brownies and all you want to is eat the batter? It is just so gosh darn good that you simply CAN NOT resist a few (ok, a dozen) finger swipes of batter into your mouth. Seriously, it takes all your willpower to not dig into your silverware draw, grab a spoon and dig in. I know, it is tough.

Not anymore, grab a spoon. It is time for a whole lot of brownie batter!

It’s a Brownie Batter Cheesecake with a Fudge Brownie Crust and it is pretty amazing. The brownie batter is so silky, smooth, fudgey, and chocolatey it is just down right awesome! And then, instead of a traditional graham cracker crust, I made the simplest but most delicious, fudge brownie crust. SO MUCH BETTER THAN GRAHAM CRACKERS!

Oh, yeah and then you’re gonna top them with some whipped cream. You know, just cause it’s Tuesday and yesterday was a holiday so it really feels like a Monday. And really all Monday’s need brownie batter, brownies and whipped cream!

  • Brownie crust: Pre-heat oven to 350. Grease a cupcake tin, you only need to grease six of the molds. Mix canola oil and butter, add cocoa and stir until well blended.
  • in a small bowl beat egg with a fork. Add sugar and vanilla, beat well and add the chocolate mixture. Add flour and salt. Stir in chocolate chips. Fill 5 to 6 cupcakes tins with batter and bake for 10-12 minutes. (I recommend under baking them just a little, to ensue a super moist crust. Allow to cool and then crumble and divide evenly between 6 serving dishes. Press into the bottoms and up the sides about half an inch. Set aside.
  • Brownie Batter Filling: In a large bowl, whip cream with powdered sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Spoon out of mixing bowl and set aside. Place the 1 1/8 cups flour, 6 tablespoons cocoa powder, sugar, salt, vanilla, cream cheese and milk into same mixing bowl the cream was just in and whip until smooth. Gently fold in half the whipped cream. Spoon or pipe over top the brownie crusts. Top with remaining whipped cream and garnish with mini chocolate chips if desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  3. Oh my this might be the best recipe I have ever seen! I totally buy box brownie mix so I can eat the batter, when I have a chocolate craving. And I do use a spoon to eat it. I can’t wait to try this recipe out! I’m having a link party on my blog and I’d love it if you’d join!!

  4. Oh.My.Gosh. It’s 8am and I’m seriously contemplating running to the store for ingredients so I can eat this for breakfast. Yum!!

  5. I actually never lick the brownie batter (cookie dough is another matter altogether!) but this sounds really good… especially for those times that I have a raging chocolate craving.

  6. OMG these look amazing brownie crust!? Hell yes! Glad to hear you got your car back 🙂

  7. ok that is crazy about your car, and I have seen those glasses at my store, trust me they are pretty:( But eating this would make up for it, sort of.

  8. This looks so delicious! Thanks so much for coming to party at Super Saturday Show & Tell 🙂 I hope you’ll come again next week. xoxo~ Ruthie

  9. Strange about the car. Sounds like it was some kids on a joyride and then got scared. At least it’s back and you can buy new sunglasses. Much easier to replace than a car!
    Pinned! Thanks for sharing at Two Cup Tuesday at Pint Sized Baker! Hope to see you there again on Monday night!

  10. Yum, yum! I’ve never tried a dessert like this. Sounds fabulous. I’m a big brownie fan, so I’m sure I’ll love it. Thanks so much for sharing. Have a great weekend. Oh, and I’m glad you got your car back!

  11. What a yummy looking recipe! Thank you for sharing with Foodie Friends Friday. Please come back on Sunday to VOTE! I am sharing this recipe on my Walking on Sunshine Facebook page tomorrow afternoon. Come on over and leave a tip or two!

  12. It seems about half the time that I click on a recipe that interests me at a link party, I end up here! So it occurred to be today that I should probably just be a follower! So now I am! You take great pictures and your food looks amazing!

  13. I just had a question on this recipe. I made it this evening but had a question on the cheesecake layer. It calls for raw flour to be beat with the cream cheese which is not something generally recommended. I did follow those directions however,but the cheesecake layer was very bitter with the cocoa and no additional sugar beyond the small amount in the sweetened whipped cream. I ended up adding sugar before using it to top the crust. Is there maybe an error in the recipe? Or is this the way it is supposed to taste and I just didn’t happen to care for it? I didn’t think it was safe to consume raw flour – just isn’t occur to me until I was actually making the recipe.

    1. Thank you for pointing this out. There is a mistake in the recipe and there should be 3/4 cup sugar added to the brownie batter filling. I have fixed the recipe and am really sorry about that! Thank you so much for pointing it out. As far as the raw flour goes, I do not think thee is anything wrong with eating it. However I am not a doctor! But because I was creating a brownie bas and did not want to use a dry brownie mix I had to use a little flour. Again I am really sorry about the sugar though, I bet those were pretty bitter!! Hope you will give them another go. Thanks again for pointing this out!

  14. Glad you got your car back! A car may be returned in another city, but it would be stripped for parts first. This brownie batter cheesecake is so rich and decadent, and just perfect!

  15. Yaaaay! I’m so glad you got your car back! It’s so funny to me that there were little footprints left behind by the culprit – I’m seriously envisioning the whole thing. Total bummer about your sunglasses…a good pair of shades really lights my fire. This brownie batter cheesecake has me alllll in a huff! You say brownie batter, and I just melt all over the place. Plus a brownie crust! Double whamy! Lookin good!

  16. When I was in high school, the same thing happened to my mom with her car, and this was in the big city of Houston, TX. We were very fortunate. Not only did they return the car, they also left money inside (I guess to pay us back for the gas??? haha). Anyway, I am so happy to know your car is back safe and sound. Sorry about your glasses, though.

    This brownie batter cheesecake looks fantastic! What a great idea!

  17. I swear, your food picks are everything I would make and eat! Easy and delicious and no hassles trying to find ingredients, etc..Plus, you bake and cook! .I’m so glad I get these everyday! (sorry about the car incident…life can be insane at times…) – you need to be on TV somewhere!
