Brownie Cheesecake Muffins

"Super easy to make little chocolate brownie muffins with a surprise cheesecake filling, and thanks to a suggestion from our friend Sweetlady, it's smothered with a creamy chocolate frosting and then sprinkled with powdered sugar. For a special someone's quick fix or a group of friends, these are delicious!"

Ready In:
12 Muffins




  • In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Set aside. Spray a jumbo (6) muffin tin with bakers joy or non-stick cooking spray and also set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350F (or according to the box directions). Make brownie mix according to the (moist cake-like version) recipe on the box using the eggs oil and water.
  • Spoon about 2 Tbsp of batter into each greased muffin tray. (Caution: Do not use muffin paper, they will stick to the paper).
  • Drop equal portions of cream cheese (about 2 tsp) mixture into the center of each muffin, then top with remaining brownie batter. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or as package directs.
  • Allow to cool, then spread chocolate frosting (or pudding) on top followed with a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

    Oh my! I made these into 12 standard sized muffins and boy did they turn out great :) I loved that there was enough creamcheese filling that it didn't get lost in the middle. I didn't use the pudding/frosting but I'm sure that would make it even more of a treat! Just writing about them makes me want to get up and eat one!

    These are so awesome! I used canned whipped chocolate frosting and it was perfect for these delicious chocolate treats!

    Yummy, yummy, yummy! I have to admit, I didn't frost them all...I just seem to have an aversion to it. So, silly me, I tried one with frosting and one without. Of course, I knew I'd like the one without frosting, but this way I got to eat two! Very easy and very good! Made for PRMR!
