Brownie Cheesecake Bars have a chewy Brownie base and the smooth, creamy Cheesecake top layer and makes the best combination ever – perfect as an everyday dessert or decorate for Easter.
I have been eyeing a specific recipe for these Brownie Cheesecake Bars for some time now. It has been sitting in one of my Pinterest boards for a couple of months.
And now I am only regretting waiting this long before I tried the recipe.
Absolutely divine ! The chewy Brownie and the smooth, creamy Cheesecake layer makes the best combination ever.
For once, some of our stores were quick in stocking up with Easter goodies and once I saw these pretty (elegant almost!) Easter Eggs, I knew I wanted to make a special dessert.
Having the Black/Gold Easter Eggs on my kitchen counter for about a week, I remembered the Brownie Cheesecake Bars recipe from Mr. Food’s site. And immediately knew how I wanted these to turn out.
If you are curious about the flavor of these Easter Eggs, it is Rum, Raisin and Chocolate – very nice and around three per Brownie Cheesecake Bar is more than enough.
My family was a bit divided over which layer is the most delicious, the Brownie, or the Cheesecake! But we all agreed that this is a match made in heaven.
