{peanut butter cheesecake brownies}

Did you read that?  Ummmm yes, I’m showing you something glorious!

I once again had nothing for today.  Writers block?  Nah.  Just lazy, I think?  Or kinda over it?  I hope not.  We’ll see what next week brings.  Luckily my girl was ready and willing to help her Mama out.  She offered to do a little baking and said I could blog about it.  ONLY if it turned out amazing though.  Bay won’t put her name on just anything.  It has to have her seal of approval.  Anything to bust our her beloved Kitchenaid ♥  Have a mentioned it’s probably the most used and adored Christmas gift I’ve even given her in our 10 years?

Anyway, this one got two thumbs up from the both of us!

When I first saw this recipe concept my jaw dropped.  It’s like a brownie dream come true!

Or a cheesecake dream come true?  Either way it’s a match made from heaven.

Somethings are just made for one another.  Don’t you think?

I mean, a box a brownie mix is pretty amazing on its own (coming from a chocolate lover) but when you add a creamy cheesecake filling, it takes it to a whole new level.

Again, this is another semi-homemade recipe.  Only a few store-bought items + pantry ingredients to make this

Here’s what you’ll need:


  • 1 package Pillsbury Brownie Mix (prepared according to box)
  • 1 8 oz. brick of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter


Here’s what you’ll do:

Preheat over to 350 degrees.

Spray your 8×8 baking dish with non-stick spray.

In a large bowl combine brownie mix according to package directions.

Pour 1/2 of brownie mixture into prepared baking dish.  Spread evenly.

Using a mixer, combine cream cheese + egg + sugar + vanilla + peanut butter until smooth.

Drop large spoonfuls of cheesecake mixture over the brownie mixture.

Pour remaining brownie mixture over the top.

Using a toothpick create swirls.

(you can hardly see the swirls on the far right picture)

Bake for 45 minutes or until center is set.

I dare you not to eat 5!

Or just give 1/2 of them away immediately!  While their warm, preferably.  Ha…
