Beth is CookingAndCrafting
She does a lot of great recipes over there, most are no fuss, no muss and you get a straightforward honest review of each one.
She is the one with the cool spoon I've always wanted. Funny that I had to to an Hawaiian Walmart to find one 🙂

I found this in a Betty Crocker publication I have altered the recipe by cutting it in half.

1/2 of a brownie (8×8″ size), I used a mix and froze the other half of the brownie for another day.
12 oz cream softened (375g)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (see below for discussion on omitting this)
1/4 PLUS 1/8 cup of sugar ( or 3/8 cup if you prefer)
2 eggs
12 to 24 wooden flat craft sticks (Popsicle sticks) with rounded ends
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup whipping cream (heavy cream) Regular would probably be fine too.
Crushed graham crackers for topping or sprinkles for decorating.

Heat oven to 300F
Line bottom and sides of a baking dish (I used a 7.5 x 12″ baking dish, an 8×11 would be okay as well) with foil, leaving some hanging over the edges. Spray the foil and any pan edges that are showing with vegetable oil cooking spray.
Place , sugar and peanut butter in large bowl and beat everything together until well blended. Blend in eggs one at a time.
Cut up cooked and cooled brownie (1/2 of an 8×8″ brownie) into 1/2″ cubes.
Gently stir in brownie pieces into the batter with a spoon and pour into the prepared pan.
Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the center is set. Cool for 30 minutes and then refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.
Remove the cheesecake from pan using the foil and cut into 12 to 24 pieces (depending on how big you want them to be). Stick a Popsicle stick into the cheesecake piece to about half-way into the piece.
Place the chocolate chips into a microwave safe dish and add the whipping cream or milk. Microwave on high for about 35-45 seconds until mixture can be stirred smooth and all chocolate chips are melted.
Dip cheesecake pops into chocolate mixture (I dipped them halfway) and then decorate with graham cracker crumbs or sprinkles if desired. Place on waxed paper or silicone mat covered cookie sheet and refrigerate until chocolate is firm. Store between layers of waxed paper in a container in the refrigerator.

I get asked often how to omit an ingredient like peanut butter. Recipes are designed to have a balance of liquid to solid and if you remove an ingredient you need to replace it with something similar. I would suggest that for this recipe, if you don't want to use the peanut butter, to find a standard cheesecake recipe of the same size and just use that instead. These recipes usually call for flavouring like vanilla and a bit of flour.
I am not a chef by any stretch of the imagination and don't know what exactly to substitute instead of the peanut butter in this exact recipe, maybe a half a cup of cream cheese? Some have suggested nutella chocolate spread instead and I'm sure this will work, but may not be an option for people who are allergic to nuts.

    Dear yoyomax,

  17. Christina Hsieh on March 16, 2013: (Reply)

    Dear yoyomax, does the cream cheese mixture tend to melt once it’s out in
    room temperature after sitting in the fridge over night ? The problem I’m
    facing with these recipes is that my mixture tends to softens after its in
    room temperature again.

    Imagine sitting by yourself watching this video, literally wanting to grab
    the food from the screen, and being genuinely upset you can’t. Realization
    hits you hard and you feel kinda pathetic.

    Hi Tammy! Great recipe as usual! I wanted to tell you that I also went to
    WALMART when I was in Hawaii!! I thought it odd as well, hmmmmm….all the
    way from New Jersey, just to go to Walmart!??? hahaha.

  42. yoyomax12 - the diet free zone on May 18, 2013: (Reply)

    I travel every year with a couple of youtube friends and one of the first
    things we do when we arrive is go to Walmart in whatever city we are in,
    lol. It’s kind of a tradition now. I head straight for the food/baking
    section looking for things you can’t find here like peanut butter captain
    crunch cereal and canned spray cheese (gross yes but it is a guilty
    pleasure). This Hawaiian Walmart had a cart escalator to bring your cart up
    to the parking level, I was enthralled and took photos, lol

  43. Woodland Bakery on May 19, 2013: (Reply)

    Can’t beat Hawaii no matter which way you look at it! My dream to live in

    I’ve decided to make this for my family, my only change is to use the
    brownie as the “crust” & it seems to be fantastic! I also used a half
    recipe & it’s the perfect amount! Thanks for the suggestion! 🙂
