Imagine mixing both, brownies and the traditional and delicious cheesecake into one mouth-watering, rich and creamy bite-sized dessert?
Lucky for you, you won’t have to imagine it, as I come bearing a gift. The perfect Brownie cheesecake bites recipe. It’s composed of brownies forming the crust layer, although it’s not really crusty, but rather fudgy and rich, with the authentic ingredient of any traditional cheesecake, the Philadelphia cream cheese, creating the perfect balance between the creamy taste of cheese and the sugary taste of the brownie layer.
