help whip cancerTo show my support for the Help Whip Cancer Campaign, I am turning one of my favorite desserts pink. We are also giving away this years pink products (pictured above) Catch me after the jump for the recipe and the giveaway details.

I LOVE brownies and I LOVE Cheesecake, it seemed fitting to pair them up for the perfect pink dessert. And what better way to turn it pink then with my favorite berry. These Double Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake bites are fun and simple to make. Would work great with other types of berries and jam as well.

Raspberry Cheesecake Bites

Without even realizing it, almost every kitchen tool I used for this recipe was a Pampered Chef Product. It is safe to say I am a fan! From the Mini Muffin Tin and Mini Tart Shaper, to the cooling rack, berry spinner, food chopper, heck even the spatula I used for the filling was Pampered Chef. Yep, I’m addicted.

Now onto the recipe.  I can’t wait for you to try these!

Double Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Bites

Ingredients:

1 brownie mix (prepared according to package instructions, but uncooked)
1/2 cup dark chocolate of choice, chopped into small pieces
1 8 oz package cool whip

1/3 cup powdered sugar
4 tbsp raspberry jam or preserves

Directions:

  • Combine chopped chocolate with brownie batter
  • bake in a greased mini muffin tin for 14 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
  • use  to press the center of each brownie firmly, to create well for the filling
  • let brownies cool completely (I take mine out of the tin and let them cool on a cookie rack)
  • prepare filling by combining softened cream cheese and raspberry jam, mix thoroughly
  •  Stir in powdered sugar and then fold in cool whip until evenly distributed
  • Fill a piping bag or zip lock baggie with cheesecake filling and fill each brownie bite with filling
