Mint Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies

Ingredients:

CHOCOLATE FUDGE:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick or 115g) unsalted butter
  • 8 ounces coarsely chopped semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 and 1/4 cups (250g) sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup (95g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
MINT CHEESECAKE LAYER
  • 8 ounces (224g) cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup (50g) sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract*
  • 5 drops liquid or gel green food coloring*
  • 2/3 cup (120g) mini chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 deg F.

Make the chocolate fudge:

In a medium sauce pan, melt butter and semi-sweet chocolate over stove. Mix until well blended then remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

In a mixing bowl, pour melted chocolate butter sauce and combine with sugar and stir. The sauce should somewhat solidify. Add eggs and continue to mix until well-combined. Then add vanilla extract, flour and salt. Mix well and fold into itself. Result should be fudgy. Set aside.

Make the cheesecake layer:

In a large mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, egg yolk, peppermint extract and green food coloring. Mix together until smooth. Best to use a hand mixer. Add chocolate chips and fold them in. Do not use the hand mixer for this. Use a spatula.

Prepare a baking pan with parchment paper. Spray Canola oil or non-stick spray.

Add bottom layer by scooping 1 cup of the chocolate fudge and flattening it as best you can over the bottom of pan. Use a spatula to even out the surface.

Next, add the cheesecake layer on top of the bottom layer. Smooth it out the best you can with spatula.

Add the leftover chocolate fudge on top of the cheesecake layer. Make swirls to your delight.

Bake in oven for 35 minutes.

Remove from oven. Let cool to room temperatures. Cool in refrigerator for another 30 minutes or more before serving.
