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!!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The delightful cheese mix in these bites is so very tasty! You can definitely pick up the hint of honey and lemon zest.... yum.

These are really great! I made them last night, but filling the tins 3/4 of the way only made 16 brownie bites, so I made a double-batch!

Angie, I took your advice and doubled the batch and I am so glad I did!! They were devoured before our main dinner was served. I did put the cottage cheese in the food processor to give the mixture a creamy texture instead of a lumpy one. It worked beautifully :) THANK YOU!!!!

These are great!!! I used grated orange peel in place of the lemon zest-an awesome blend with the chocolate. I also cut the oil in the brownie mix with applesauce to at least attempt to make it a bit more figure friendly. Serving them to a group tonight- I cant wait for the responses.

Did u use liners or grease the pans?? I see liners in the pic, but it says line and grease. i never heard of greasing a liner before. Did u mean to spray them with Pam ?? I'm a bit confused as you can tell !!
