Brownie-crust Cheesecake Bars

Ingredients


For the brownie

  • 1/4 cup chopped dark baking chocolate
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • a pinch of salt


For the cheesecake

  • 1 (8-ounce) bar cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon gelatin
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 cup all-purpose cream, chilled
Method

1  Preheat oven to 325ºF. Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper. 

2  Make the brownie crust: In a saucepan, melt chocolate and butter over low heat. Transfer to a mixing bowl mix.

3  Stir in sugar and vanilla. Stir in egg and mix until smooth. 

4  Mix in flour and salt. 

5  Pour into prepared pan. Bake for about 20 to 30 minutes; cool.

6  Make the no-bake cheesecake: Cream together cream cheese and sugar. In a small saucepan, bloom gelatin in cold water then melt over low heat. Add to the cream cheese mixture. 

7  Whip all-purpose cream and fold into the cream cheese-gelatin mixture. Pour over the cooled brownie crust. Chill for 2 hours. 

8  Remove from pan, cut into bars, and drizzle with melted chocolate, if desired.
