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:

  1. 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.

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

    • You could, but I prefer the cream better.

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

    • 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.

  4. I made this for my sister’s birthday….it was amazing!!!

  5. Wow, these shooters cost like $3 at restaurants… for $3 that’s like half the mix!!

  6. Can you use homemade brownie mix–basically flour, sugar and cocoa?

    • I don’t see why not! Give it a try and let me know how it goes 🙂
