My very favorite dessert in the whole entire world is cheesecake. Growing up I used to ask for cheesecake on my birthday in place of regular cake, and my parents usually agreed. I loved those cheesecake samplers that featured 3-4 different types of cheesecakes, and always my favorite one would be the chocolate or caramel flavors. Over the last few years I’ve become more comfortable baking ‘cheesecake’, and have made everything from Skinny Key Lime Cheesecake Cupcakes to Sopapilla Cheesecake which is a spin on Mexican cheesecake. I’ve never met a cheesecake I didn’t like, and I am happy to report, it’s not as difficult to make as I always thought. When I heard Mars Brand Candy was coming out with some new ‘bites’ I was curious to see what they would be. Come to find out they have Milky Way Simply Caramel Bites, which is basically a caramel covered in chocolate….delicious. I knew these tasty little bites had major dessert baking potential and of course the first thing to make that came to mind was cheesecake.
While making the recipe, I kept thinking of the delicious melted caramel and chocolate, and the soft brownie crust I opted to make instead of a plainer cheesecake. With a combo of chocolate, caramel, brownies, and cream cheese, how can you go wrong? You can’t.
You need to make sure these bad boys cool completely before you slice into them. I also refrigerated mine before serving, but you could also serve them room temperature. You do have to refrigerate them after you are done serving though, because you don’t want the cheese filling sitting out for a long time.
I’ve already unloaded a ton of these Milky Way Caramel Cheesecake Brownies to my friends and neighbors and everyone has raved about how delicious they are. These are seriously one of the best desserts I have ever made and it was so simple.
