ORANGE CHEESECAKE BROWNIES

Orange Cheesecake Brownies - Butter With a Side of Bread

I have always loved the orange/chocolate flavor combination and I also love brownies and cheesecake, so when I found this recipe that combined all of that yumminess in one dessert, I knew I had to try it! The results are just about as amazing as I predicted and they are actually very simple to make as well!

ORANGE CHEESECAKE BROWNIES

  • 1 box brownie mix (for 8X8 or 9X9 pan)
  • egg(s), water and oil as required on box
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 Tbsp flour

Mix brownie mix with egg, water and oil as directed on package instructions. Line an 8-inch square pan with foil and lightly grease the foil with cooking spray. Reserve 1/2 cup of the brownie batter and set aside. Pour the remaining brownie batter into the prepared pan.

To make the cheesecake layer, beat the cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the egg, orange zest and flour and mix until smooth. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the brownie batter. Drop the remaining 1/2 cup brownie batter by the tablespoon on the top of the cheesecake layer. Swirl with a knife to create marbling. Bake at 325 for about 45 minutes. Let cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Cover and refrigerate until completely chilled, about 3-4 hours.

To serve, lift the foil out of the pan and then cut into squares. Enjoy!

(If you want to add a little more orange flavor, you can replace some of the water in the brownie batter with freshly squeezed juice from the orange that you use for the zest.)
