Recipe: White Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies
I also didn't want to go shopping. I had an MRI on Thursday afternoon to figure out what is wrong with my arm, why it just isn't back up to what it should after 10 weeks of occupational therapy. Anyway, they put me in this position that really hurt my arm AGAIN so I don't feel like shopping or doing much beyond what I need to. I still wanted to do something for this holiday so I adjusted a recipe I had for chocolate cheesecake brownies.
White Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies
1 8oz package of light cream cheese
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
4.4oz bar of Lindt White Chocolate
1 box brownie mix (egg, water, oil, or applesauce as directed)
Beat together cream cheese, egg, sugar, and vanilla. Melt white chocolate and beat that in as well.
Bake at the recommended times for the minimum time on the brownie mix box. Check that cheesecake is just firm in the center before taking it out.
The cheesecake texture and flavor is going to be very faint for this recipe. This was to allow more of the white chocolate out but by making it this way you don't get a solid ganache on the top, you get something easier to eat and something with a bit of sharpness to the flavor from the cream cheese. You also control the number of calories that a cheesecake can have this way though, of course, the brownie part is it's own calories.
Let me know how you celebrated "National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day."
