Take-out Tuesday, Triple Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake

 

🎭 Laissez les bon temps rouler! 🎭

Happy Fat Tuesday!

The last day of indulgences before the Christian season of Lent,

a time when many choose to give up sweets and other treats…

 

 

 

 

Let’s go all out and celebrate with a Triple Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake!

 

 

 

This was actually HHjr’s birthday cake,

he is not really a dessert eater, but loves cheesecake

 

 

 

 

This cheesecake is so easy to make you won’t believe it!

 

 

 

 

Prepare the brownie mix according to the directions on the box

I used Betty Crocker Delights Supreme Triple Chunk Brownie Mix,

chocolate source #1

 

 

 

 

Next beat the cream cheese with eggs, vanilla and sugar to make the cheesecake

 

 

 

 

Then stir in chocolate chips,

chocolate source #2

 

 

 

 

Put the prepared brownie batter into a sprayed 9 or 10″ springform pan

 

 

 

 

Top with cheesecake batter

 

 

 

 

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes

Sprinkle with a few more chocolate chips

Reduce oven to 325 degrees and bake for 20 more minutes

 

 

 

 

Let cake cool completely and then refrigerate

 

 

 

 

Now, I have to be honest,

when I saw these Baileys Irish Cream baking chips I got pretty excited

but when I tasted them I couldn’t taste the Baileys, just chocolate

I made a simple chocolate sauce with heavy cream, chocolate chips and Baileys

It was delicious but I still couldn’t taste the Baileys…

But the sauce is wonderful anyway…

Save the Baileys for sipping!

 

 

 

 

The sauce is the 3rd chocolate source of Triple Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake

 

 

 

 

It might be a chocolate overload!

 

 

 

 

So sauce, or no sauce…

 

 

 

Baileys or no Baileys,

 

 

 

 

You won’t be disappointed!

    Oh my goodness; that looks fabulous! My son has been looking for a cheesecake recipe that actually requires baking (lately all the ones he finds are for no bake cheesecakes and he wants something more challenging!). I’m going to show him this one. Pinned.

    I’ll bet your cheesecake was a big hit for the birthday boy!! It certainly would be for me, Jenna. Thank you for the review of the Bailey’s chips. I have seen them, but I think I’ll skip. I do love a sip of Bailey’s, however!

    • I was so disappointed that I couldn’t detect the least little hint of Baileys in the chips, just tasted like chocolate to me! I really liked the brownie and cheesecake combo, it is very rich, but they complement each other well, thanks Kitty~
