Make this easy chocolate chip brownie cheesecake at your next party and you’ll be the favorite. Brownie mix plus a simple cheesecake topping come together for a truly delightful dessert!
I can’t remember the last time I made a cheesecake but I remember it being super stressful. And I’m pretty sure it didn’t turn out nearly as gorgeous as this easy chocolate chip brownie cheesecake. I mean, just look at this beauty!
I don’t know why, but I find homemade cheesecake super intimidating. I feel like many recipes require a water bath, and water baths always make me second guess the recipe. Plus cheesecake can go wrong in so many ways, and a bad cheesecake is one you don’t soon forget.
Fortunately this chocolate chip brownie cheesecake starts with a brownie mix—pretty hard to mess that up—and ends with an easy cheesecake topping that is fluffy, light, and creamy all at the same time. It’s truly heaven in a homemade cheesecake!
You will for sure want to invest in a springform pan for this easy chocolate chip brownie cheesecake. (Fortunately it’s not a huge investment!) Not only do you want the ability to show off its gorgeous sides but you need a pan with some serious height. Otherwise you’ll have chocolate chip cheesecake oozing over the sides and onto the bottom of your oven. I don’t know about you, but cleaning my oven is not super high on my list of fun things to do.
While this brownie cheesecake isn’t difficult, it does take some time. You have to bake the brownie mix first and let cool. Then you top with the cream cheese mixture and refrigerate for at least four hours. My suggestion is to make it the day before; it keeps well in the fridge and you won’t have to stress about one more thing the day of your party.
