Gooey and chocolatey brownies with a swirl of creamy but refreshing mint cheesecake.. I love a combination of chocolate and mint so I don't need to tell you.. you have to make it!
For the brownie base:
- 1 cup plain flour
- 125g dark chocolate
- 125 melted, unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar
- pinch of salt
- 2 eggs
- 2tbsp cocoa powder
- 3tbsp greek yoghurt
For mint cheesecake layer:
- 250g cream cheese
- 1/3 cup caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1tbsp plain flour
- 1 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
- few drops of green food colouring
Place dark chocolate and butter in a small saucepan and warm over low heat until melted. Pour the mixture into a bowl and add all remaining ingredients and mix until just combined.
To make the mint cheesecake layer combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until smooth.
Pour the brownie mixture into a lined 23cm tin, saving about 1/2 cup to swirl on top.
Pour the cheesecake mixture over, then dollop remaining brownie mixture on top and make swirls using a knife.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C for 25 minutes.
Take out the oven and leave to cool, then chill in the fridge for couple of hours before serving.
