No-Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecakes

No-Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecake Final 2 I have a blogging friend I met in Seattle named Shelly. I’ve been following her and her blog for a while. She makes ridiculous treats that literally make me drool.

I have another blogging friend I met in Seattle named Kristan. I’ve been following her and her blog for a while now too. She also makes ridiculous treats.

Shelly and Kristan are doing a little something called Brownie Batter Week.

That’s right people.

Brownie Batter WEEK.

A week full of sweet treats that happened to be jam packed full of brownie batter. {Be still my ever slowing heart.} I just about fell off my chair when I saw this, these, these and especially these. YEAH. These ladies don’t mess around. So, this is me trying to be as cool as them.

Here’s how you make these No-Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecakes:

{PS- these are pretty amazing….}

No-Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecake 1 Start of with some graham cracker crumbs and add in a little cocoa, sugar and melted butter. Stir it all around to incorporate and that’s the crust.

No-Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecake 2 Divide this evenly between four serving cups and press into the bottom and up the sides. That’s that.

No-Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecake 3 Now in a large bowl, whip some cream. Well, actually lots of cream :) Scoop all this out and set it aside.

No-Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecake 4 Into that same {dirty} bowl {cause dishes are the devil}, whip up some cream cheese together with

No-Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecake 5 some boxed brownie mix

No-Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecake 6 until smooth and creamy. I also added a little milk too.

No-Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecake 7 So now we’ll take half of that cream and fold it into the chocolaty goodness.

No-Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecake 8 Like so….

No-Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecake Final 3 Just FYI.

  26. I have a question – these little cheesecakes are adorable and look delicious as well!
    How do they hold up if made the day before without the whip cream garnish?
    Need to make them ahead for a party…

    • Lauren — September 5th, 2012 @ 6:55 am

      Yup, they’ll stay delish in the fridge for a few days!

  29. For the cream cheese, is it 18 oz cream cheese or one to eight oz cream cheese or the whole bar? Sorry! The hyphen screwed me over in the ingredients list!

    • Lauren — October 27th, 2013 @ 7:11 pm

      One 8 oz. block of cream cheese.

  30. I’m sorry for continuous questions — I’m going to try this for my parents’ anniversary gift. Is it bad to use only the brownie mix — doesn’t it contain raw flour and isn’t it bad to eat such?

    Reply

    • Lauren — October 27th, 2013 @ 7:10 pm

      No, brownie mixes are fine to eat! As long as there are no raw eggs mixed in, you should be fine!

  33. I can’t believe this only makes four. It looks like there is scads of whipping cream. Just checking. Need to feed a small crowd.

  34. Can you use cool whip instead of the whipping cream?

    Reply

    • Lauren — August 28th, 2014 @ 7:56 am

      You could, but I prefer the cream better.

      Reply

  35. if you wanted to make these as bars instead of individual cakes any recommendations on how to do that?

    Reply

    • Lauren — September 2nd, 2014 @ 8:28 am

      Just press the crumbs into a greased 8×8 pan and top with the no-bake filling. Chill it well and then cut into bars.
