Brownie Cheesecake Bites


   I am such a happy girl now that October is here! My sister finally confirmed she'll be having a Halloween party this year to keep our family tradition alive. I am in charge of bringing the desserts/treats, so I'm on the hunt for ideas. I came across these darling Brownie Cheesecake Bites over at Confessions of a Cookbook Queen. Her blog is amazing, so many fun ideas!

   I decided to make these brownie bites Halloween-ish, by dipping them in assorted colors of melting chocolate and adding some fun sprinkles. My little Emma helped me out. We had a ball and made a mess! These are a great treat for the older kiddos to help you with.... they are fun to make.... and even funner to eat!


Brownie Cheesecake Bites
Makes 20 bites

1- 9x13 pan of Fudgy Brownies, baked and cooled  (not cakey) 
1 small container of frozen cheesecake bites (I used Sara Lee Original flavor cheesecake bites)
16 oz of Chocolate Candy Coating or Candy Melts (I used orange, purple, green and dark chocolate)
Halloween sprinkles


Using clean hands, crumble up your brownies so you can mash them together with no large chunks. Take about 2 tablespoons of brownie and mash into the palm of your hand. Place one frozen cheesecake bite into the center and wrap the brownie around it. Repeat until all the brownie is used up. I was able to make 20.

Place all brownie bites onto a wax paper lined baking sheet and place into the freezer for 30 minutes.

Melt candy coating according to package directions in microwavable bowls. Dip each brownie bite into the melted candy, using a a spoon to coat. Gently lift the bite out with a fork and let excess coating drip back into the bowl. Immediately sprinkle bite with desired sprinkles before the coating dries. Place bite back onto the baking sheet. Repeat with all. Place back into the freezer or fridge to set for about another 10 minutes.
