This Gluten Free 3 Layer Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake is so yummy and is perfect for any holiday or get together!
Oh. My. Wow! I am in love with this cheesecake! My husband has been making it for years, when my out of town friends come to visit it is a requirement for him to make one. I think people drive hours more for the cheesecake than for my company, which is a little hurtful but I don’t blame them. It’s delicious! My hubby usually makes a graham cracker crust, but since I don’t handle flour well I decided to try it out using my flourless brownie recipe. One word. AMAZING! This 3 layer chocolate brownie cheesecake is a must for the table when you want something over the top good and sweet for dessert!
Oh man, I want a piece right now!
Okay, so I am a dope (no surprise there!) and forgot to take a picture of the brownie layer before I poured the cheesecake on it. I was just overly excited. I did take a picture of the cheesecake when it came out of the oven, see how it’s just barely golden brown around the edges and little spots in the middle. Perfection!
The sour cream topping really puts this cake from being one great cheesecake, to wanting to lock yourself in a room with it so that nobody hears your sighs and moans!
Anyone want to come share this with me? 🙂
