For Cheesecake Filling

  • 1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 – 1 cup chocolate chips

For Brownie Batter

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2  cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Beat together the cream cheese, egg, sugar and salt until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips and set aside.
  • In a seperate bowl, stir together the water, oil, vinegar and vanilla. Combine remaining ingredients and stir in to the liquid. Whisk together until smooth, or mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. Batter will be thin.
  • Grease two muffin tins, or use paper liners, and fill each with a 1/4 c. batter. Put about one tablespoon of the cheesecake mixture in the center of each cup.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Cool completely before eating. Store in the refrigerator.

One of the best things about these cups is that they freeze really well and are perfect to grab for a quick treat. Thaw either in the refrigerator for a few hours or on defrost in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
