No Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecakes | Heaven on Earth!

I have two blogging friends (Shelly and Kristan) who make ridiculously amazing 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 No-Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecake is me trying to be as cool as them.

I basically took all the flavors I love about brownies and no bake cheesecake, then combined them into this super easy dessert!

Main Ingredients Needed

I broke down this recipe into two sections, the crust and the filling. Here’s everything you’ll need to make No Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecakes:

For the Crust

  • Graham Crackers – these are crushed to create the crust.
  • Cocoa Powder – this flavors the crust to be chocolatey.
  • Sugar – this sweetens the crust.
  • Butter – this is melted to hold the crust together.

For the Filling

  • Heavy Whipping Cream – this is whipped up to create whipped cream!
  • Powdered Sugar + Vanilla – this is used to sweeten and flavor the whipped cream.
  • Cream Cheese – tangy creaminess that is perfect for a no bake cheesecake recipe.
  • Brownie Mix – this is the powder that we are going to use from a boxed brownie mix. If you are nervous about bacteria found in the flour, toast the powder on a cookie sheet for a couple of minutes (this should kill any bacteria present).
  • Milk – this helps the brownie mix combine smoothly with the rest of the ingredients.
  • Mini Chocolate Chips – used as a garnish!

How to Make No Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecakes

Top with remaining whipped cream and garnish with mini chocolate chips if desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Storing Instructions

These can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. I would recommend storing without the whipped cream on top and instead garnish as needed. This makes a great make ahead dessert that can be enjoyed any time of the year!

    hello girlie!! I HAD to post this to the BHG board we’re both contributors on – looks absolutely DIVINE!! xo

  12. Jill Lewis

    I have a question – these little cheesecakes are adorable and look delicious as well!
    How do they hold up if made the day before without the whip cream garnish?
    Need to make them ahead for a party…

  13. Soonay

    For the cream cheese, is it 18 oz cream cheese or one to eight oz cream cheese or the whole bar? Sorry! The hyphen screwed me over in the ingredients list!

  14. Soonay

    I’m sorry for continuous questions — I’m going to try this for my parents’ anniversary gift. Is it bad to use only the brownie mix — doesn’t it contain raw flour and isn’t it bad to eat such?
