What would the mother in your life say if you gave her a slice of this?! Especially after you told her that you made it...from (almost) scratch...just...for...her.
She probably wouldn't say anything because she'd be speechless.
Speechless like "LOL, no you didn't make that, now tell me where you bought it from" or speechless because she's already eating it and you couldn't quite make out the muffled "THANK YOU, this is the BEST thing you've ever made for me."
Yes, you are going to score major brownie points (pun intended) this Mother's Day with this chocolate chip brownie cheesecake.
Don't be intimidated by this cheesecake. This beauty is
This cheesecake recipe was originally inspired by a couple of college students I knew about 15 years ago when I was living in Ocean City, New Jersey for the summer. There were about 100 of us college kiddos living at the beach for the season, working at a variety of summertime jobs, and two students volunteered to cook for ALL 100 of us for the 12 weeks we were there.
Yep, you read that right...100 students, 2 student cooks, and a TON of food.
Those 2 student cooks were amazing women. Amazing because they managed to grocery shop, cook for, and feed all 100 of us crazy hungry college kids, and even more amazing because they went above and beyond the call of duty by making us an after-dinner dessert EVERY.SINGLE.NIGHT.
Ummm yes, some bad dessert habits were formed that summer. And I'll be honest, it took a while to readjust my sweet tooth after I returned home. But let's not discuss that.
What I'm getting at is if those two college kids can make all that food, you can totally make this cheesecake. And the mother you give it to will
This cheesecake is really just so so SO delicious. It was a little difficult photographing it because every time I would adjust a slice of this brownie creamy goodness I'd get some on my fingers and well...it would be such a waste to just wipe it off, right? Logically I had to eat it.
And then when I began writing this post and thinking about how to adequately explain just how decadent this cheesecake is and how it will make-you-wanna-just-close-your-eyes-after-that-first-bite-to-fully-savor-the-wonderfulness-encompassed-in-it, I couldn't help but go all in for a full slice. I think it helps me to eat the food while I'm writing about it.
