Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ganache Cheesecake

Chocolate Cheesecake

We live in the country and our closest neighbor is around half mile away, at the end of our lane to be exact.  Becca is a wonderful baker.  My son went down to help with some internet computer problems.  In return Becca is making different cheesecakes and we are on the receiving end of these awesome goodies.

Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ganache Cheesecake

1 box brownie mix (prepare according to directions)
24 ounces cream cheese
3/4 cup sugar
3 eggs beaten
2 Tablespoons vanilla

Make the brownie mix and pour into a spring form pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.

Add cream cheese and sugar to bowl and beat until combined.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Beat until smooth and creamy.

Remove brownie from the oven and reduce heat to 325 degrees.  Pour the cream cheese mixture on top of brownies and bake for 50 minutes.

Cool for 3 hours or overnight.

Ganache

2 cups heavy cream
1 pound semi sweet chocolate chips

Heat heavy cream until just to the boiling point.  Pour in chocolate chips and stir until nice and smooth.  Let sit for 10 minutes.

Pour over cheese and you can let it run down the side if you like.  Let sit for 30 minutes to set.  ENJOY!

  1. This looks delicious! I wish more neighbors returned favors with baking! My mom didn’t bake much (I think she was constantly on a diet 😉 ) but my next door neighbor made homemade chocolate pies and would randomly send one over to us. I can’t explain the excitement I felt as a 10 year old!

  2. Oh my yum! I love a good ganache and my husband loves brownies so this will be a great combo to make. Looks so good and I’m looking forward to making it.

  3. My daughter makes the most amazing cheesecakes! We always say she should sell them, but they really are expensive to make. She’d have to charge a lot, but hers are just as good as Cheesecake Factory. This one looks so good! Sharing it with her!

  4. Yum! It looks gorgeous and fancy, and I especially like that the recipe doesn’t seem too hard. I would love to make this for Father’s Day. My husband can’t resist a good cheesecake.
