So when I break out a rich, creamy, decadent recipe like this it is usually to celebrate! And that is what we are doing here today. Celebrating!
Many of you who know us personally, know that we were planning on moving to Berlin, Germany late July. We were excited for the adventure that lied ahead, even our kids were pumped. With the exception of their worry of small fridges.
My husband is a middle-school teacher and he was looking at doing a two-year teaching contract over there. But then there was a twist in fate. You see my husband loves the school he is at and he was sad leaving, but we needed a change. Then the assistant principal job became available at his school, a job that he has been wanting for a long time. You see he wants to not only inspire change, but lead change. We knew if he applied and got the job that we would have to turn down Berlin. Some of you may be thinking, how could you pass that up? I thought I would be sad as well, but I am not. I have a peace knowing that where he is at, is where he is most needed. He loves his job, like really loves it. He never comes home unhappy or stressed out because he hates his work. He comes home with a smile. We are invited to graduation parties for his students years later, we have attended weddings, baby showers and well there have even been late night knocks at our door, when a past student needs his advice. So no, I am not sad. I am excited. And I think Lincoln Middle School is lucky to have him.
Cheers to a new job, new perspective and many blessings. Now, all we need to hear that Aiden got into Space Camp this summer and life will be grand.
Happy Friday friends. Celebrate with us and enjoy a piece of this ridiculous Fudge Brownie No-Bake Cheesecake. You’ll love it. And when you get the fudge recipe, make a double batch. It is a the best fudge recipe you will ever come across. Love my friend Anna over at Crunchy Creamy Sweet for this recipe.
Enjoy!
XOXO San

Fudge Brownie No-Bake Cheesecake

Ingredients

  • To make this a true no-bake recipe buy a premade brownie from your local bakery or grocery store and cut to fit pan that is used in the directions below.
  • OR
  • 1 brownie recipe or 1 boxed brownie mix
  • 1 1/2 cups 60% cocoa chocolate chips
  • 12 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 cups frozen non-dairy whipped topping, thawed
  • ¾ cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 recipe for 10-minute Hot Fudge Sauce
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Directions

Prepare an 8-inch springform pan, otherwise known as a cheesecake pan by spraying with cooking oil. Make brownies according to package directions. If using my homemade brownie recipe, click here for recipe directions and bake for 35-40 minutes. Remove brownies from oven and let them completely cool.

Once brownies are completely cool make the no-bake cheesecake. In a small bow add chocolate chips and heat in microwave for 1-minute. Stir, and then heat in 30 second intervals stirring in between until chocolate is completely smooth and melted. Set aside to cool.

Beat together cream cheese, sugar and butter in large bowl on medium speed until smooth and creamy. I used my KitchenAid mixer for this. Slowly add in cooled melted chocolate chips, stirring until well blended. Then fold in whipped topping until blended, I get a little inpatient and usually start to beat it.

Add in mini chocolate chips and stir until incorporated. Spread on top of cooled brownies.

Place in the refrigerator until firm and set 30-60 minutes.

When ready to serve make fudge sauce. To get full directions click here.

Cut the cheesecake into slices and serve, drizzle with hot fudge sauce.

You need this in your life, take a bite and enjoy! Chocolate is the best way to celebrate!

    Oh, my word!!!! Now that’s the way to do a brownie!! I am seriously in love with everything about this!! And congrats on your husband’s new job and that you get to stay in the same area! We are kind of debating some of the same things…although not quite as big of a move as Berlin.

    The recipe says to spray a springform pan but in the recipe you pour the mixture over the brownies so you do not need a springform pan. Am I reading it wrong?

    • Sandra says

      Debbie – you bake the brownies in the spring form pan – then once they have cooled add the cheesecake mixture to it while still in the spring form pan, so that you can chill it and have it set. Does this make sense? San

    • Sandra says

      Kim – You don’t bake the cheesecake, so it is no bake. Sorry for the confusion this may have caused. San

    Hi! I was wondering if there are any alternatives to the ‘2 cups frozen non-dairy whipped topping’? I live in Australia and I don’t think we have that (cool whip I’ve heard it is in America) in our supermarkets, would standard whipped cream work or whipped cream in a can with a nozzle? or will it change the recipe too much? Thank you! Have a great day :)

    • Sandra says

      Sarah-Jane – you can make homemade whipped cream using heavy whipping cream. But do not use the whipped cream that comes in the can, that will not stand up in the recipe, as it is too runny. Hope this helps. xo San

      • Clare Baines says

        Ohhh I’ve gotta make this on Friday with my daughter!! I will use whipping cream as we don’t have the cool whip in uk, it looks Devine!!! Xx

  4. Whitney says

    Do you use 1 brownie recipe, as stated, or should I halve it? When I clicked on the brownie link, it looked like a big batch.

  5. Jean says

    Can’t wait to make this! If you bake the brownies yourself, do you bake them in the springform pan? Or do you bake them separately and then put them in the spring form pan?

  6. Kat says

    So you make the cheesecake and brownie mix separate but somehow it’s combined and there’s no step by step of this part.Help me asap

  7. Cassie says

    I have made this two times and it is a quick delicious dessert for all chocolate lovers. Too rich for some but just perfect for most. Thanks for the delicious recipe

  8. says

Last month I shared with you a fantastic pumpkin recipe which was just perfect timing for fall.

I literally didn’t want to eat it and I couldn’t stop taking photos. And friends it taste just as good as it looks. I love the sweetness from the orange zest and cranberries it is a perfect balance to the nuttiness of the pecans. I love the holidays mainly because I love sharing food and recipes with others.
