Twix Brownie Cheesecake

I made a Twix brownie for a friend’s birthday. He loves twix and I thought that making a cake with it would be a great idea. It’s always good to try different things. You can use your favourite chocolate bar in so many different ways. I hope you try this!

 

TWIX BROWNIE CHEESECAKE 


INGREDIENTS

BROWNIES
1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, melted
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
1 TBS vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
12 oz (ish) jar hot fudge sauce

CHEESECAKE
1 (8 oz) block cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1/2 can (14 oz can) sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla

TOPPING
4 full sized Twix bars, roughly chopped (they come in pairs, so you’ll have 8 total)
Caramel Sauce (I just used the stuff you put on ice cream)

 

INSTRUCTIONS

PREHEAT oven to 350. Line a 9 inch round springform pan with foil, then spray with nonstick spray. Set aside.

In a large bowl, WHISK together the cocoa and melted butter. STIR in sugar until combined. Stir in eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each. Stir in vanilla.

FOLD in flour JUST until you no longer see flour streaks in the batter. Gently fold in hot fudge sauce (you may need to heat it just enough to spoon/pour out of jar).

SPREAD batter in prepared pan and bake for about 35 minutes — OR until the brownies are puffed, set around the edges, and a knife inserted in the center comes out with fudgy crumbs/streaks but NOT raw batter.

Let cool for about 30 minutes, then cover and refrigerate until chilled.

Prepare cheesecake layer: In the bowl of your mixer, BEAT cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla until smooth. Spread over brownies and top with chopped Twix bars.

CHILL for several hours until firm, then carefully remove from pan and peel off foil. Drizzle generously with caramel sauce before serving.
