Looking for a great dessert treat? Here’s one of the “small bite” desserts I made for Easter brunch. I’d seen the recipe for these Chocolate Chip Cheesecake-Swirl Brownie Bites on my Pinterest feed for a week or two, so decided to make some for everyone to enjoy!
I enjoyed making several different “small bite” desserts for our brunch. Here’s a photo of all of them, including Chocolate Dream Cups with Raspberry Mousse, Lemon Curd Filled Won Ton Cups, and Spring Flower Sugar Cookies!
They are incredible!!! Each little mini-bite is packed FULL of chocolate flavor, and the cheesecake mixture beautifully swirled through the dough makes them even more delicious! Since these are made in miniature muffin tins, the recipe will make approximately 32 bites of “Chocolatey Goodness”!
This was a great, “easy to make” recipe to bring for a large group…So yummy! Hope you enjoy them, friends!
First things first: Mix up the ingredients for the brownie batter:
Next, mix up the ingredients for the cheesecake batter:
The brownie batter is put into the mini muffin pans like this:
Then the cheesecake batter is added to the muffin cups:
Now the brownie batter and the cheesecake batter are gently swirled together, then they are baked until done:
Here’s a close up look at this cute little Chocolate Chip Cheesecake-Swirl Brownie Bite (yum):
Sure hope you enjoy these chocolate chip brownie bites! They are delicious! Have a GREAT day.

Recipe Source: http://www.domesticate-me.com/chocolate-chip-cheesecake-swirl-brownie-bites/
- 1/2 cup butter (+ 2 Tablespoons)
- 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (+ 2 Tablespoons)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs , cold
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 8 oz. cream cheese , softened
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar (+ 2 Tablespoons)
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg yolk
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray one or two miniature muffin tins with a non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
- Using a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Set aside.
Combine granulated sugar, cocoa powder and salt in a large bowl. Add melted butter and vanilla. Mix into dry ingredients until well combined. Stir in eggs, one at a time. Once batter looks shiny and thick, add flour and mix it in well. Keep stirring until ingredients have been incorporated. Fold the chocolate chips into the batter. Spoon about a tablespoon of the brownie batter into each of the wells of prepared muffin tin(s).
In a separate bowl, beat the cheesecake swirl ingredients (softened cream cheese, granulated sugar, vanilla extract and egg yolk) together until fully combined. Add a dollop of the cheesecake swirl batter (about 1/2 Tablespoon) to the top of each brownie cup. Take a knife and gently swirl the cheesecake batter down into the brownie batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes (until toothpick comes out clean). Check them at 15 minutes. Keep an eye on them so you don't overcook them! When done, remove them to a wire rack to cool. Let brownie bites COOL before trying to remove them from the pan. Repeat process with remaining batter (if making them one muffin tin at a time)...then ENJOY!!!!!
***These brownie bites also freeze very well, if by some miracle there are any left... just sayin'!
