Triple Chocolate Espresso Cheesecake Swirl Brownie Bites


  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate - finely chopped
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons fresh brewed espresso (you could replace this with water if you don't want the espresso flavor)
  • 1/2 cup of boiling water
  • 4 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Cheesecake Ingredients:
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Mix together the cocoa, boiling water (1/2 cups and espresso. Whisk until uniform.
  2. Whisk in the chopped chocolate and continue whisking until it's melted. Add the melted butter and oil and continue to whisk.
  3. Add the eggs, yolks and vanilla and continue to whisk until smooth. Continue whisking while you add the sugar.
  4. Fold in the flour,baking powder and salt and then the chocolate chips.
  5. Pour into your prepared baking dish.
  6. Blend all the cheese cake ingredients until completely uniform.
  7. Add dollops of the cheese cake mixture on top of the brownie batter in the baking dish. Use a knife to swirl the mixture through the brownie batter.
  8. Bake at 350 for 30 - 35 minutes. When using a toothpick, they're done when the toothpick comes out mostly clean with a few moist crumbs.
  9. Allow brownies to cool for 45 minutes before attempting to cut (avoiding this step will lead to rips, smears and an unattractive brownie!)
  10. Cut, Serve, Enjoy!
