First, I mixed the brownies according to the package directions. I filled the cupcakes liners about one third full and baked them. I made round ones and square ones. I like using a trigger scoop to fill the paper liners. Round cupcake liners work just fine in square pans– they still turn out square.
For the second layer, I mixed cream cheese and powdered sugar.
Mix it until it is nice and creamy. There are no eggs, and no further baking is necessary.
Blend in the peanut butter and heavy whipping cream. You can use almond butter in place of the peanut butter if you prefer. You can see my favorite Peanut Butter on this page.
The mixture will be thick, like peanut butter pie.
If you accidentally make your brownie layer too thick, just cut an upside down cone shape out of the top to put the cheesecake filling in. Then you can also put extra filling in the cups first, and add the extra cones on top, like you can see on the left in the picture below.
Next, I melted the semi-sweet chocolate chips for the chocolate ganache layer.
Add heaving whipping cream and stir it in.
Even though there are three layers plus toppings, it did not seem very labor intensive. One of the reasons this recipe is so easy is because there are no eggs in the cheesecake layer– so it is a no-bake version! It was very satisfying to see it all come together. I used Maple and Almond Butter Snickers on top of these brownies. You can use regular Snickers or whatever kind you have on hand.
I loved the Maple flavor and combined with the brownies these were sooo delicious!
I would love to hear if you try making these!
These Snickers Peanut Butter Cheesecake Brownies can be made with any flavor Snickers. I used Maple Almond Butter this time. The combination of chocolate and peanut butter is just irresistible!!
