Over the top fudge brownies packed with mint truffles and a layer of creamy cheesecake, these brownie cheesecake bars are better than any mint patties you ever had!
I’m bringing you another decadent brownie today. Just like the mint chocolate chip frosted brownies, it combines both chocolate and mint, a combination very popular this time of the year. If you ask me, this combo should be enjoyed year round, especially on hot summer day to cool down a bit.
I’ve been holding on to this recipe for weeks now. I was just waiting for the right moment to share it with you. With St. Patrick’s day just few days away, what better time than now to share these better than thin mint brownie cheesecake bars?
What I love most about this recipe? Except the combination of flavors and textures, I love the fact that these fancy looking bars take so little time to come together.
The bars start with a layer of Oreo cookie crumbs. I prefer buying the Oreo pie crust instead of making my own, but you can pulse a few cookies in the food processor. It’s just as easy.
The brownie is a melted chocolate based brownie, mixed with sugar, eggs and flour – ingredients I’m pretty sure you already have on hand.
The cheesecake layer is whipped in no time – cream cheese, sugar and egg. A few drops of green food color to dress them up for the holiday.
Unless you’re as obsessed with seasonal candy as me and have mint truffle kisses, you can use thin mints, york peppermint patties or any mint chocolate candy you have on hand.
Since an entire bag of mint truffle kisses is used, it makes a little difficult to swirl the cheesecake layer with the fudgy brownie. To make sure I don’t end up with a messy looking bar I spread the cheesecake filling over the brownie layer. If you ask me now, I think it looks better this way. To give the bars a fancy look, I drizzled them with melted chocolate.
