Brownie Swirl Cheesecake | I LOVE CHOCOLATE!♥ That’s why I made this epic brownie cheesecake! Two of my favorite desserts in one! Starting with a brownie crust, layers of brownie bits and dollops of dark chocolate swirls! This wonderful cheesecake is worth every sinful calorie. You’re Sweetheart will be forever thankful on Valentine’s Day this year. Nothing says “I Love You” like chocolate. ♥
The fist time I made this delicious cheesecake was for a Senior Citizens Lunch. I actually made two cheesecakes for that lunch. This Brownie Swirl Cheesecake and a Cranberry Bliss Cheesecake. Both were devoured but of course the chocolate went first!
Since I love brownies so much I thought I would include a little history lesson about the brownie. It all started in 1893 when Bertha Palmer, the wife of Palmer House owner Potter Palmer, was president of the Ladies Board for the Colombian Explosion World’s Fair. She was asked by the organizers of the event to create a dessert especially for the boxed lunches at the Women’s Pavilion, Palmer went to her hotel’s pastry chefs and game them the task of creating a dessert that was easier to eat than a piece of pie and smaller than a layer cake that could easily be served in boxed lunches. The result was a brownie made with double the chocolate normal brownies use, walnuts, and an apricot glaze that’s still made at the hotel to this day. HERE is that recipe.
Ready to make the BEST cheesecake EVER?
Once the brownie crust is baked (and this is the best part) cover the crust with brownie bites. BONUS….you’ll have leftover brownies to enjoy while you wait for the cheesecake! CONFESSION…..Next time I make this cheesecake I’m going to see how it turns out by using a brownie mix. 😉
Cover those delicious bites with the creamy cheesecake filling.
That’s not all! Add dollops of chocolate batter.
Baked! Look NO CRACKS!
