Cheesecake Swirl Cupcakes!

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.

Cheesecake Brownie Cupcakes!

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:

This is all you need.... plus the extra ingredients for the brownies (water, 2 eggs, 1/3 cup of oil)!

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!

So yum!

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!
