Hot Fudge Brownie Cheesecake

Woot week 3 of our Copycat Series and I think it is becoming my favorite series of them all! I think we should do a copycat of our copycat series!!!  (ok sorry it is way too late and I think I’ve had too much sugar, or not enough sleep, or both?)

Anywho I am sharing with you guys a delicious decadent cheesecake this week.  This is a copycat of a cheesecake I used to get from The Cheesecake Factory, but I don’t think they have it anymore, so I made my own:)

Luscious cheesecake sits upon a rich brownie bottom and then gets a hot fudge bath with cherries and toasted almonds finishing the whole thing off.  It is seriously the best cheesecake ever!

It is a rich one though so just a sliver will do ya.  It is such an easy recipe since I use a boxed brownie mix, so you can whip this cheesecake up in no time and really wow your friends and family.

  2. Parrish, this cheesecake is just gorgeous, and your photography is beautiful. I love that the crust is BROWNIE! ♥ Thank you so much for sharing this at Treasure Box Tuesday- PINNED! :)

    1. This is absolutely the best cheesecake ever! We love it, and I will use just the cheesecake part for all my cheesecake needs! Thank you!

  3. Is the brownie mix to be baked prior? I made the recipie and the brownie didn’t bake. Other than that it tasted good

    1. I do not bake it before and it usually comes out almost cooked through but still very very fudgy. If you prefer a firmer crust I would prebake the brownie part for maybe 15 minutes before adding the cheesecake batter.
