Twix Cheesecake Brownie Torte

Today I bring you a cheesecake extravaganza.  Yes, extravaganza!  Because not only do you get this amazingly delicious Tix Cheesecake Brownie Torte recipe, you get to check out all the other amazing cheesecake recipes at the bottom of this post.  Holy heck!

Why a cheesecake extravaganza you ask?  Camilla over at Culinary Adventures with Camilla is celebrating her 15th wedding anniversary and wanted to celebrate with cheesecake.  Lucky husband, right?

My cheesecake is the mother of all cheesecakes.  It’s a merge of two fantastic desserts, our Twix Cheesecake Bars and our Cream Cheese Filled Brownies.  Both fantastic but made together?  A-MAZING!!!!

This dessert was rich and chocolatey and oh, so delicious!  The Twix Cheesecake layer was the perfect kick-it-over-the-top addition.

 Delicious, right?  But then add a generous layer of cream cheese frosting.

 You could stop there if you wanted.  But we didn’t want to.  So we kept on going.  (More is better, right?)  So we poured chocolate ganache over the top.

 What do you think?  Too over the top?  My answer?  Heck no!!!

Twix Cheesecake Brownie Torte


    For the Cheesecake Layer
  • 16oz cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chopped Twix candy bars (4 full sized packages)
  • For the Brownie Layer
  • Family sized box of brownie mix
  • Ingredients to make the brownies (eggs, oil and water)
  • For the Ganache Layer
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • For the Cream Cheese Frosting Layer
  • tub of store bought cream cheese frosting


    To make the cheesecake layer:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line the bottom of a round cake pan with parchment paper. Lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Place the cream cheese, egg, sugar and vanilla extract into a large bowl and beat on a med-high speed until light and smooth, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add in the chopped Twix bars into cheesecake mixture and gently fold until incorporated.
  5. Pour into the cake pan and bake for 25-30 minutes until lightly golden around the edges and the cheesecake has set. To see if the cheesecake has set, tap the edge of the pan and see if it wobbles. If it's done the whole top should move together slightly, if it's not done it will wobble all over.
  6. Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely in the pan.
  7. For the brownie layers
  8. Make brownies according to box but bake in 2 round cake pans.
  9. Let cool in the pan for about 15 minutes, then turn over onto a cooling rack.
  10. Cool completely before assembling.
  11. For the ganache frosting
  12. To make the ganache: heat the heavy cream in the microwave just until scalding. You don't want it to boil. Pour over chocolate chips and let sit for about 10 minutes. Stir briskly until smooth. You want it fairly thin so it will pour. If needed, add more scalding milk and mix thoroughly.
  13. To assemble
  14. Place a brownie layer on a cake plate. Top with cheesecake layer and the other brownie layer.
  15. Spread cream cheese frosting over top of cake.
  16. Pour ganache over cream cheese frosting.
  17. Allow to cool completely before serving.

Are you speechless?  Well, you should be.  This Twix Cheesecake Brownie Torte is TO. DIE. FOR!
