Cheesecake Brownies

When you can't choose whether or not to have cheesecake or brownies, why not have both? This cheesecake brownies recipe takes the best of both, and combines them into one! You'll love the creamy cheesecake on top of a chocolaty, fudgy brownie; covered in even more chocolate. If you've never tried a cheesecake bars recipe before, you are going to fall in love with this one. A brownie recipe on its own is enough to be excited, but add some cheesecake filling, and some extra chocolate and you have a dessert recipe that is over the top. Some of the ingredients you will need for this cheesecake brownies recipe include a boxed brownie mix or homemade brownie recipe, softened cream cheese, softened butter and cornstarch. You also need some condensed milk, egg, vanilla extract, and a container of chocolate frosting.

To start, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and grease a 9-inch by 13-inch baking dish with some nonstick cooking spray. Make the brownie mix recipe by following the recipe directions that are on the package. Pour the batter in the baking pan. Then beat the cream cheese, butter and cornstarch until they are fluffy. Then slowly beat in the sweetened condensed milk, egg and vanilla until they are smooth. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the brownie batter. Then bake for approximately 45 minutes. Allow to cool and spread the chocolate frosting over the top of the cheesecake filling. Store the cheesecake brownies covered in the refrigerator. This is a dessert recipe that is sure to go fast!

The creator of this recipe site is Ashton, who started the blog in 2010 after she had her first child. She was a stay at home mom and thought she would try her hand at blogging, as she had seen some of the other stay at home mothers trying it. For her writing about food seemed to be a natural choice, with desserts being the thing she liked best about all foods. It is safe to say she has a bit of a dessert obsession. It took time for her to learn about the photography, food styling, food journalism, how to bake and social media that went along with food blogging but eventually she did. She enjoys being an entrepreneur and a small business owner. The site has become her full-time job. She has the opportunity to work with big brands that she loves and gets to promote their products (brands like Betty Crocker and Land O Lakes Butter). It's an amazing experience and one of her favorite parts of the job.She has also had the opportunity to author her very own cookbook, Party Popcorn. She had never considered, writing a cookbook before, but after she had signed the contract, she realized it was something she wanted to do. It took over two years of recipe testing, marketing, writing, and lots of patience, but for her, it's a big accomplishment that she is very proud of. How exciting! It's nice to see someone take something that they are passionate about, and turn it into a career of their own.
