Have the best of both worlds in one bite with these Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownies – one layer of homemade fudgy brownies with peanut butter cups topped with a creamy, decadent layer of peanut butter cheesecake. Bring on the chocolate peanut butter goodness.
I’m back with another cheesecake recipe! That shouldn’t be a surprise to anybody who reads this blog as I’m up to 54 cheesecake recipes and counting. When I post yet another cheesecake recipe, friends always joke that my blog name should be Cheesecake Moosey. This time around I’m thinking it should be renamed to Chocolate Peanut Butter Moosey because oh look another chocolate peanut butter recipe #sorrynotsorry
These Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownies were meant to be cheesecake swirled brownies, but after making the cheesecake batter, I realized there was too much batter to swirl. I rolled with it and made an entire peanut butter cheesecake layer, which I think worked out better anyway. More cheesecake in every bite. Homemade fudgy brownies on the bottom with peanut butter cups and a creamy, decadent layer of peanut butter cheesecake on top. Put a plate of these out on the table, and they will disappear faster than you can say peanut butter.
There are times when I can’t decide on which dessert to bake up next. Do I make cookies or brownies? Brownies or cheesecake? I find the best kind of dessert is when you combine both into one bite. That way you don’t have to choose which one to make now and which one to make later.
Although cold peanut butter cups aren’t mandatory, it’s helpful because they’ll start melting once you stir them into the hot brownie batter. Don’t have any peanut butter cups on hand? Use an equal amount of peanut butter chips.
