It’s one of my favorite desserts and this layered brownies and cheesecake pie is right up there with my other favorite: Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake Recipe here on the blog.

Sometimes while I am grocery shopping, I find myself wandering the bakery section. I love cheesecake so much that I often find myself eyeing up the $10 or more cheesecake trays.

I will tell you, the Brownie Cheesecake Recipe tastes way better and costs way less than any store-bought cheesecake. The first time I made it, my husband and boys helped themselves to seconds and I had to grab the last piece while no one was looking, that’s how good that cheesecake layer really is!

Your guests will enjoy this sweet chocolate cheesecake so much that there won’t be any leftovers!

Tips for Making Brownie Cheesecake Recipe:

Let’s be real. I love desserts. I love chocolate brownie cheesecake but I also love that it’s simple to make. This recipe uses your favorite brand of brownie mix, perfect for using what you already have in the pantry.

The rest of the cheesecake is a delicious twist on an old classic. Homemade, made from scratch cheesecake batter, combined with creamy softened cream cheese, and swirled with melted chocolate chips, then baked to perfection.

Even those that aren’t big chocolate fans will be hardpressed to resist this simple yet elegant creamy chocolate treat. The chocolate brownie crust and cheesecake top compliment each other very well!

Calling all cheesecake lovers, this Brownie Cheesecake Recipe is one dessert combination that will not disappoint!


  • 1 package of brownie mix, prepared
  • 2 8oz packages cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil


    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

    Grease a 9-inch springform pan with nonstick cooking spray and pour prepared brownie mix into the pan.

    Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, until brownie is set but not fully cooked.

    While the crust is baking, beat the cream cheese, sugar, flour, and vanilla until smooth and combined.

    Add the milk and beat until mixed.

    Add the eggs and mix on low until combined.

    Pour the mixture into the springform pan on top of the brownie.

    In a small bowl, add the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Melt in 30-second increments in the microwave, stirring between each addition. Dot the melted chocolate on top of the cheesecake mixture. Use a thin spatula to create a marble effect by dragging the spatula through the chocolate dots.

    Place the pan back in the oven to bake for an additional 35 to 40 minutes. To prevent the cheesecake from cracking, place a pan of water on the bottom rack of the oven while the cheesecake cooks.

    The cheesecake is ready to be removed from the oven when the outside edges are set when gently shaken. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and place the pan on top of a wire cooling rack to cool for 15 minutes

    Use a thin knife to loosen the edges from the pan, then remove the springform pan and allow to cool to room temperature for around 30 minutes. Then, place the pan on the refrigerator to chill for at least 4 hours before serving
