Cranberry Cheesecake Brownies

Tis the season for immensely delicious goodies.  These little sweet cakes look festive and are delicious.  The other nice part is they are are super easy to put together.  

The cakes are not super sweet.  The cream cheese and cranberries help to balance the sugar in the brownies. 

Cranberry Cheesecake Brownies

15 minutes of Prep
25 minutes of Bake time
24 Servings

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Brownie Mix

·       1/2 Cup Flour
·       1/3 Cocoa
·       1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
·       1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
·       1 tsp. Baking Powder
·       1/4 tsp. Salt
·       Non-Stick Pan Spray
·      1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
·      2 Eggs
·       1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil

Mix the Brownie Mix according to the directions here
Instead of putting the brownies in a pan, grease a mini muffin pan.  Or use little muffin wrappers. 

Cheesecake Mixture

·       8 oz Cream Cheese
·       3 Tbsp.  Powdered Sugar
·       1 tsp. Vanilla
·       2 Tbsp. Flour

Beat together until it looks super fluffy. 

I used homemade cranberry sauce with orange zest and brown sugar.  You can certainly use your own recipe or use the canned version.  I recommend about a Cup of it.

·       1 Cup Cranberry Sauce

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In each mini muffin pan put a couple spoonfuls of brownie mixture.  Then add dollops of cream cheese to each muffin pan slot.  Do the same with the cranberry sauce.

Then take a toothpick and swirl the mixture of each brownie.

Bake for 15 minutes.
