Let's Get Loaded!


I originally made this recipe for a client for an Instagram post and, um, it was so frickin' good, I had to make it again (and, again). I did make it with a couple of tweaks the second time around due to the ingredients I had around (that's the version you'll see below) and, well, get ready to fall in love!


There are loads of reasons to fall in love with this decadent dessert. Chocolate lovers, I think the visuals probably say it all. I'll go on. The gooey center of the brownie gives it a lava-like richness. The cheesecake swirl gives a complexity to the brownie that makes it extra dynamic. And, all of the playful toppers add a variety of textures that make it extra fun on your tongue to eat. 


Oh, and it's super easy to make! Go on, treat yoself!
