Ever wondered what the filling of a cheese blintz would taste like with a chewy chocolate-y brownie? Recently, while dining at my grandparents retirement home, we were served the BEST cheese blintzes I have ever put in our mouth. So, I dashed into my kitchen to try and recreate them. I admit, I didn't nail it on my first try. However, when I for it the second time, perfection. And I thought, what two flavor combos do we find most comforting...cheese & chocolate of course & so this sweet treat was born. ENJOY!!

Angie -- I'm a personal chef and retired prolific caterer. I want to commend you on "thinking" through this recipe. I find if more cooks would do what you have done here, and concoct a recipe in their minds before it reaches their palate, there would be more miracles coming out of American kitchens. I can't tell you how many hundreds of times, I've seen a 20-step recipe, and come up with a 5-step variation, simply by thinking through the ingredients and flavors, texture and structure of the finished product. I can't wait to try your recipe, and will also use it as an inspiration to "think" up new variations. Well done, Angie. Well done!

I may have missed a response but numerous folks have asked what can be substituted for the cottage cheese. Thus far, I have found that ricotta can be swapped (1 for 1) for cottage cheese in everything that I make. Think "lasagna". Depending upon which camp you're in - some folks use cottage cheese, some use ricotta, and others use both.

I also ran the cottage cheese and cream cheese through the food processor. I omitted the lemon and instead put 1/4 of an oreo into each cup. It made 48. Delicious.
