Eating cheesecake that takes after a candy bar is definitely something you want to try. Wait until you take a bite of these Take 5 Cheesecake Brownies. You will always want your brownies this way.
What can I say? I couldn't help but make another cheesecake recipe for you. Especially with it being National Cheesecake Day and all. This is definitely a day that had to be celebrated for sure. We just love making cheesecake over here a little too much.
Have you seen this Strawberrylicious Chocolate Cheesecake or this Mocha Oreo Cheesecake? Those were some of the very first cheesecake creations that we have come up with...and we haven't stopped since then.
It is safe to say that cheesecake is one of the top things I love to bake the most. There are just so many different ways to enjoy the creamy goodness. Pie, cupcakes, brownies, cookies, no bake, parfaits...I could go on and on. Clearly I have thought about this a little too much and a little too long 🙂
Today's cheesecake was a combination of two other desserts that I made a few years ago. I combined these Caramel Pretzel Cheesecake Brownies with these Take 5 Bars...best idea ever!!!
Take 5 candy bars are one of my favorites. I think mostly because of the salty and the sweet together. And this cheesecake offers you all of the same flavors.
I started with a crunchy pretzel layer. I chopped them coarsely because I wanted a good crunch for the brownies to sit on. Peanuts and melted peanut butter got added to the brownie layer. And then a caramel cheesecake layer went right on top of everything. It was pure torture waiting for this to bake and then chill. I was so excited to eat these brownies. Of course I had to jazz them up even further by adding a caramel and chocolate drizzle to the top. It just seemed like the right thing to do. Melty drizzly caramel makes me go weak in the knees.
Drop everything you are doing today!
You need to make these Take 5 Cheesecake Brownies right away. National Cheesecake Day only comes once a year...let's celebrate it in style this year.
