Truly, summertime means spending quality time doing what you love with the ones you love. And nowhere in that description does spend forever standing in the kitchen cooking or slave over long, complicated recipes fit into the mix.
Nope, summer is about finding the tastiest and easiest recipes for things like pasta salad and smoothies and being able to throw them together without spending any extra valuable minutes in the kitchen.
So, what better way to celebrate summer than by combining my two all time favorite desserts, cheesecake and brownies, into one delectable treat? That's why now is the perfect time to whip up a favorite recipe passed to me from a friend, easy and effortless Chocolate Chip Brownie Cheesecake.
My mouth is watering just at the thought of rich, luscious brownies being blended with the smooth, creaminess of cheesecake and these individual portions are just right!
While these do involve pulling out the mixer and turning on the oven, there is plenty that kids can do to help (crushing the cookies for the crust is always a guaranteed giggle-producer in my kitchen!) and the overall process involves very little effort.
As for the result?
Kraft Recipes is hosting my complete Chocolate Chip Brownie Cheesecake recipe and instructions, so head over today if you're looking for a delicious and simple way to usher in the joy, relaxation and decadence of summer.
Whether you are bringing these to a potluck or serving them at your backyard BBQ, your family and friends will take one bite and think that these individual chocolate cheesecakes are a complicated, time-consuming dish. Little will they know that you simply had to soften some PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, blend it up with brownie mix and toss it in the oven!
