Salted Caramel Cheesecake Brownies: A rich and fudgy chocolate brownie with a sweet, salted caramel cheesecake filling.
I’ve been wanting to test and make this recipe for a looonnggg time now and finally, FINALLY, I have and I was not disappointed and neither will you be!
These brownies are just so indulgent and so rich and fudgy you won’t want to go back to regular old brownies again.
For the brownies I adapted the brownie from my Ultimate Chocolate Chip Oreo Brownies as that brownie recipe turns out super rich and super fudgy while having the right amount of brownie batter needed for this recipe.
The only tricks needed with this recipe is in the brownies, ensure you beat the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy as the eggs are the only raising agent in these brownies so beating them until fluffy gives the brownies a lighter and fudgier texture as apposed to thin and dense.
The salted caramel cheesecake couldn’t be easier just take my homemade salted caramel recipe, beat in some cream cheese and that’s it! Absolutely painless and fuss free. To ensure your cheesecake layer is nice and smooth, I recommend leaving the cream cheese out of the fridge to come to room temperature so it beats nicer and is lump free.
I hope this makes your Monday a little brighter. We got sun and no rain here today which made a great change. We’ve been hit with around two weeks of non stop rain and although I don’t mind the rain, (so long as I can stay inside by the fire), two weeks is getting to be a bit much…
