Course: Dessert

Equipment

  • 9 Inch Springform Pan
  • Stand or hand mixer

Ingredients

  • 1 Package Brownie Mix
  • 2 8 oz Cream Cheese
  • 2/3 Cup Cane Sugar
  • 1 tbsp All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tbsp Milk
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and grease a 9-inch springform pan with nonstick cooking spray or coconut oil.
  • Prepare the brownie mix according to the package directions and pour into the pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, until brownie is set but not fully cooked.
  • While the brownie crust is baking, combine the cream cheese, cane sugar, flour, and vanilla in a large bowl or stand mixer bowl and mix on low until smooth and combined. 
  • Add the milk and beaten eggs on low until well combined.
  • Pour the cream cheese mixture into the pan over of the brownie crust.
  • In a small microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Melt in 30-second increments in the microwave, stirring between each addition.
  • Once fully melted, drop the chocolate into the cheesecake mixture in a dot pattern and drag a small spatula or knife through the chocolate dots to create a marbled swirl effect.
  • Bake the cheesecake for an additional 30 to 40 minutes. Check at starting at the 30-minute mark to see if the outside edges are set when the pan is gently shaken. (Tip: To avoid cracking, place a pan of water on the bottom rack of the oven while the cheesecake is baking.)
  • After baking, cool the cheesecake for 15 minutes on a wire rack. After 15 minutes, loosen the edges of the cake from the pan with a thin knife and remove it from the springform pan before continuing to cool the cake until it reaches room temperature, approximately 30 minutes.
  • Chill the cheesecake for a minimum of 4 hours, but the dessert is best served if refrigerated overnight.
  • Enjoy!
