Hot Fudge Brownie Cheesecake

It’s been way too cold to even think about ice cream, let alone a hot fudge sundae. When it warms up, I’m definitely trying this Hot Fudge Cake Ice Cream Sundae. Not ideal when our low temps have been below zero and the wind chills even more brutal! But this hot fudge brownie cheesecake was too enticing to ignore.

Back to a happier subject, this amazing brownie cheesecake. First, a most dreamy vanilla cheesecake was layered over a thick fudgy brownie base. Then in true hot fudge sundae style, the whole shebang was topped with homemade fudge sauce, whipped cream and cherries!

Tips for Making the Best Cheesecakes:

  • Have all the ingredients at room temperature, especially the cream cheese, but including the eggs, cream and/or sour cream depending on your recipe. This will help ensure a smooth batter. Just take them out of the refrigerator about an hour before you plan to start mixing.
  • Use the paddle attachment so no unnecessary air is beaten into the batter. If you only have a hand mixer,  just be careful not to over mix.
  • When you add in the eggs, mix them in one at a time and only until just combined.
  • Baking in a water bath, or bain marie, can help prevent the top from cracking. But when you are topping the finished cheesecake with fudge sauce, sour cream, lemon curd, etc, any cracks will not be noticeable.
