Cheesecake Brownie Ingredients

  • 1 Cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 1/3 Cup semisweet chocolate chips divided
  • 3/4 Cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup (about 200 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (about 200 grams) brown sugar
  • 2 medium-sized eggs
  • 1 medium-sized egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee dissolved in 1 tablespoon hot water
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 16 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1/2 Cup caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • pinch Salt
  • 2 medium-sized eggs


  • For the brownie, add the melted butter and 1 cup chocolate chips into a large bowl. Stir together until smooth.
  • Immediately put in the cocoa powder and salt then mix until fully incorporated.
  • Mix in the white sugar and brown sugar then add eggs, yolk, vanilla, and dissolved coffee. Mix until smooth.
  • Drop in the flour and mix until almost combined then fold in the remaining chocolate chips. Reserve half a cup of brownie mixture for topping. Set aside. 
  • For the cheesecake topping, add the room temperature cream cheese to a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment and mix at medium speed for 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Reduce speed to low and slowly add sugar, salt, and vanilla extract.
  • Add eggs one at a time, allowing each to incorporate before adding the next. Scrape the bowl down and mix once more.
  • Add the cheesecake mixture on top of the brownie base and spread out.
  • Add spoonfuls of the reserved brownie mix on top of the cheesecake layer and swirl the brownie batter into the cheesecake batter with a skewer.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F and bake for another 35 minutes. Cool completely before slicing into squares.
