CHOCOLATE CHERRY CHEESECAKE – This is a showstopper dessert! Love cherries? I know I do! Love cheesecake and brownies? I know, I know, like who doesn’t? These 3 treats combine beautifully together to make this brownie cheesecake. It’s also really easy to put together since we are using a box mix of brownies! Betty likes to help us out now and again. You can, of course, use a homemade brownie too if you prefer. I served my slices up with some Hershey’s hot fudge and extra cherries because, well-why not!
CHOCOLATE CHERRY CHEESECAKE
— 1 Box of Betty Crocker Dark Chocolate Brownie Mix, prepare according to box
— 1 can cherry pie filling (Or use an additional can for decorating the slices)

Spread half the brownie in the pan.
Beat cream cheese, egg, vanilla and sugar.
Spread this over the brownie batter.
Dollop scoops of the cherry pie filling on top, reserving a bit for the tops.
Use the rest of the brownie batter to top the cherries.
Spread carefully with offset spatula.
Bake about approx 60 minutes until baked all the way though.
Cool to room temp and then chill a few hours before cutting.
