Kit Kat Brownie Cheesecake Bars

Let me just say you need to make these bars.

They are not just regular old cheesecake bars or brownies.....they are cheesecake bars AND brownies, sandwiched TOGETHER with Kit Kats....

Um excuse me but where have you been all my life?!

Initially I was a little hesitant that they would be complicated to make or that Mr B would not be entirely thrilled with them given they were bound to be rich and indulgent but wouldn't you know it, they were dead easy and Mr B fell head over heels in love with them!

I think that aside from how incredible they taste, one of the best things about these bars is how they look when you cut them, I love the defined layers and chunks of Kit Kat!

To make these Kit Kat Brownie Cheesecake Bars you will need:

For the Brownie layer....
115g butter
45g dark chocolate
1/4 cup cocoa
1 1/4 cups caster sugar
1 tspn vanilla
1 egg
3/4 cup plain flour
5 regular sized kat kat bars or one bag of fun size kit kats

For the Cheesecake layer
450g cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
2 tspns lemon juice
2 tspns vanilla

Pre-heat oven to 175C and line an 8x8 inch pan with baking paper or a silicone mat.

To make the brownie base, start by combining the butter and chocolate and heat in a microwave safe bowl for 40 seconds and stir until smooth.

Add the cocoa, sugar, vanilla, egg and flour. The batter will be very thick, but that's good. Beat until combined. Spoon the batter into your pan and smooth the top.

Layer the Kit Kat bars over the top of the brownie batter in one layer, ensuring the whole surface is covered.  It will look something like this....

Now, onto the cheesecake. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the cream cheese and the sugar and beat until smooth.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Add the lemon juice and vanilla and beat until smooth.

Pour the cheesecake mixture over the Kit Kat layer, smoothing the top with a spatula or the back of your spoon. Bake for 35-40 mins or until the top is firm but still has a bit of jiggle to it. A toothpick or skewer inserted should come out clean.

Allow the bars to cool completely and refrigerate overnight before cutting.

  1. OH MY GOSH!!! These look Ah-mazing!

    I want to bake these right now, but I'm trying so hard to be good and loose lots of 'baby' weight!

    I will have to save these until Monday night when I have family coming for a birthday dinner, at least then I will have to share.


  2. I've been lucky that Mr B has been taking them in his lunches, but we did have a bowl of the off-cuts that was very dangerous....everytime I walked passed the fridge I seemed to end up with a mouthful of Kit Kat Cheesecake Brownie goodness!!!
