Caramel Chocolate Cheesecake Brownie with Raspberries is so simple and easy to make; it’s actually a shame to call it an actual recipe. The fabulously rich recipe is all about decadent, fudgy, brownies, covered in a no bake cheesecake topping, drizzled with melted chocolate, thick caramel sauce and topped with fresh raspberries. It’s definitely the dessert that will leave your guests wondering if you spent all day in the kitchen on their account.
Every blue moon something inspires me to make a new recipe; of course, I always have to take it to the next level when I make it or I just wouldn’t be Heidy McCallum at all. I was on Facebook and came across a video making its rounds on several profiles from a page called Ladies Corner a self-proclaimed online magazine, with the description of a quiet corner for modern, brave and beautiful women around the world, who are curious about fashion, family, and life. I decided I like their idea and decided to up the ante a bit when I was making this delicious concoction they titled, “A different kind of brownie”
First off the trendy video simply calls for, baking a box of brownie mix, follow the boxes directions, in a springform cake pan, cooling, adding 16 ounces of softened cream cheese to a bowl, adding 1 cup of sugar, Cool Whip, and a bit of vanilla,combining the ingredients, and folding in chocolate chips. Seems simple enough,doesn’t it? Too simple if you ask me and not that you did, too late the can of worms is already open.
I decided that 1 cup of sugar is too much; it must be reduced. I also decided that the Cool Whip would be substituted instead with Creme Fraiche or sour cream, Cool Whip would be too sweet for what I had in mind today. Fold in chocolate chips? Not likely, instead I would melt those bad babies; drizzle chocolate and caramel on the top of my newly dubbed Caramel Chocolate Cheesecake Brownie with Raspberries recipe.
This decadent, rich Caramel Chocolate Cheesecake Brownie with Raspberries will become your favorite go-to recipe for the Holidays or any special occasions you want to wow friends and family alike; with a special dessert, they are guaranteed to love.
