It only takes a small amount of extra effort to make a cute and visibly delicious dessert! Today, I made these beauties for husband with the help of my 3 year old.
I don’t think anything drives me more crazy than plain brownies cut and put onto a plate. Seriously, the five minutes of effort is being shown. Husband loves brownies and has been asking me for a few days to make some.
I pulled out my cheesecake swirl brownie box and I found the cupcake version recipe on it! Luckily, I had the two (yes, only TWO) extra ingredients on hand. Well, I take that back, I had walnuts and the recipe called for almonds, still it was a perfect taste.
Here is what you need:
It’s always nice to have some extra baking essentials on hand.
All you do is make the brownie and cheesecake batter. Fill each bin 2/3 full of brownie mix and then about 2 teaspoons of cheesecake batter. Throw some chocolate chips and walnuts on top. That’s it! Bake for 26 minutes on 350. The box said it would make 12, but I only got 9 out of it (I wanted it to overflow the cupcake holder a little). So delish and so easy!
Maybe the next time you buy brownies, check out the extra fun recipes on the side of the box! There’s the semi-homemade dessert for ya!
