Everywhere you look, there are signs of fall. Pumpkins, apples, falling leaves, and more are in all of the grocery stores and of course, pumpkin spice recipes! My favorite creamer is back, too. (it’s this dairy free pumpkin spice creamer, if you were wondering!) But today, we are talking about apples. Caramel apples to be exact….sitting atop a cheesecake brownie. There are many variations to this delicious Caramel Apple Cheesecake Brownie, but here is the easiest version to make!
I’m the type of girl who eats the cookie to get to the icing. “Minimize the cookie, maximize the icing” is the way I look at it. I know some prefer the cookie, and that’s okay, but I think everyone will agree that these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookie Cups are delicious and a winning combo for everyone!
The cookie cups themselves are super easy to make. I just used a store-bought sugar cookie mix, followed the package directions for rolled cookies, then rolled balls and flattened them out inside a mini muffin tin. For this recipe, I also added a 1/2 tsp of cocoa powder. SO yummy and pretty simple, too!
The cheesecake icing or cheesecake filling is rich and creamy and I just added the finished product to a sandwich bag, clipped off one corner, squeezed it in and added mini chocolate chips.
I did find that these crisped up pretty quickly, so make sure to store in an airtight container and place an apple slice inside to make them moist!
Who wouldn’t love all of that peanut butter cheesecake icing??

Fresh fruits are our favorite, year round, but of course there is something about spring that makes us love them all the more! Fresh, local fruits are such a joy. I love buying a carton of raspberries and see my kids eat them with big smiles on their faces! My husband also loves raspberries, so I combined the delicious, fresh flavors of spring with a light raspberry cheesecake filling inside these cute, easy cookie cups made from store-bought cookie dough for this raspberry cheesecake cookie cups recipe!
I love creating new recipes with fun ingredients that we all love. I wanted to create a new banana recipe because we always seem to have browning bananas in our house. I made this super easy Banana Chocolate Chip Cheesecake and it really could not have been easier.
