Mini Minty Cheesecake Brownie Cups

One of my favorite flavor combinations is Chocolate and Mint. This recipe is a true Chocolate and Mint Lovers Delight! Mini minty cheesecake brownie cups are the perfect example of this flavor combination.

Fast and Easy

Chocolate and Mint come together beautifully in these quick, easy and delicious Mini Minty Cheesecake Brownie Cups. This fast and easy minty dessert is made with only three ingredients…seven if you include the oil, eggs and water called for on the boxed brownie mix and the peppermint extract added to the cheesecake filling.

Twenty-four and More

This recipe makes 24 mini brownie cups. Since I made this recipe for myself, my grandson and my husband, I filled 12 brownie cups with the cheesecake filling and I froze the remaining 12 brownie cups. I could, let me rephrase that, I should have froze 18 brownie cups. Why? Because we each ate four filled brownie cups apiece. (My grandson is only 6 years old!) Two apiece would have been plenty, but they were so darn good! I’m pretty sure that no matter what you filled these tasty mini brownie cups with, they’re going to taste awesome!

Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

Just think, you could fill these cups with: ice cream, pudding, peanut butter, whipped cream, fruit or just about anything else you can think of. Heck, my grandson and I liked them just fine empty. With the 12 brownie cups that I froze, I thought I would make a filling of peanut butter, crushed graham crackers and powdered sugar. Basically the same filling I use to make Peanut Butter Balls  with at Christmas. Instead of dipping the peanut butter balls into melted chocolate, I’m going to place one peanut butter ball into a mini brownie cup. Then drizzle a chocolate ganache over the top of the peanut butter balls. Sort of like a ‘Buck-eye.’ I’ll be sure to post the recipe when I make them.
