A brownie lover’s dream nestled into a river of luscious hot fudge sitting atop a New York style cheesecake! Sounds decadent, am I right? Would you believe me if I told you that you could make this in just 10 minutes? And it costs less than half a dozen bakery cupcakes?
With the holidays coming up, or in some cases, already in full swing, we are all looking for easy and delicious ways to simplify life. I know I am. I always feel like I am pressed for time. It is the worst when my family gets invited to a party and I am supposed to bring a treat to share. Not because I don’t like parties, or treats, but because I inevitably leave it to the last minute, thinking I will have time, and never do.
On nights when we have somewhere to be, it seems like I always end up thinking I will have more time than I do, so we grab dinner in the drive through, and show up with something less than impressive for a food blogger, that I threw together in the two minutes I was yelling at my kids to get their shoes on and get in the car.
I am a realist and I know that I am not going to get a lot better at planning ahead, or time management, and I will always try to cram more into the day then I have hours for, which is why I wanted to come up with a solution to what to bring to a party that will both impress and be easy! As well as a way to feed my family before I go. This Brownie Lover’s Cheesecake with Ultimate Hot Fudge Sauce is my solution. Don’t worry, I will explain. But for now, just know that not only is it affordable, but easy to make, and totally delicious. And super convenient because I can keep almost everything I need for it in the freezer, making it something I have on hand for those last minute, run out the door, occasions.
So, what is my secret? Okay, it is not actually a secret, but it is so awesome I had to share. It is using America’s Choice® Creations products. They have treats like a New York Style Cheesecake and Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies, but they also have things like crab cakes, Black Angus Bacon and Cheddar Burgers, Lasagna, and Bratwursts!
So by picking up a little of both the sweet and the savory, I simplify my life. With a package of Bratwursts for dinner, and a frozen New York Style Cheesecake, as well as a Peanut Butter Truffle Brownie, Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Pecan Caramel Brownie Cookies for a decadent dessert, I am set.
If I didn’t love them, I wouldn’t share them with you. America’s Choice® Creations are found exclusively at Save-A- Lot. They are both delicious, and low priced. I was really surprised at how inexpensive the America’s Choice® Creations products are considering the high quality ingredients used. I never would have guessed.
The high quality and low price point means I can get dinner for my family, and everything I need for the Brownie Lover’s Cheesecake for under $20. Amazing right? I got these products from the Save-A-Lot in Grand Junction Colorado. Prices do vary by location, but Save-A-Lot is known for keeping customer’s budget in mind by offering up to 40% lower prices than conventional grocery stores.

We really enjoyed the Lemon Shandy Beer Bratwursts with Cracked Black Pepper. I loved how easy and flavorful they are, and what a simple dinner solution they were for me. And the treats were fantastic.
