Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch spring-form pan with cooking spray; set aside.

  • In a medium bowl, stir together brownie mix, one egg and oil until combined. Stir in chocolate pieces. Spread batter in prepared pan.

  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until brownie is just set. (It will not be completely done at this point.)

  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar on medium speed until well combined and smooth. Add in the eggs on low speed and set the mixture aside.

  • Carefully spoon 1/2 can (1 cup) of cherry fruit filling into center of brownie, leaving a 2-inch brownie border along sides of pan.

  • Dollop cream cheese mixture over surface; carefully spread to edges of pan.

  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until center is set, but jiggles when the pan is lightly tapped.

  • Cool in pan on a wire rack for 1 hour. Cover and chill at least 4 hours before serving.

  • Top cheesecake with remaining cherry fruit filling. Garnish with whipped topping, if desired.

This was unbelievably good. My husband asked me not to make again because he couldn't stop eating it. Best cheese cake ever. Read More

I made this for Valentine's Day and we loved it. It was easy and delicious. I added a teaspoon of vanilla to the cheesecake mixture. I may have made a mistake with the brownie mix and it seemed like it needed more liquid or something. I expected the crust to be a bit less dense. Very good, but a little thick and hard to cut thru Would definitely make this recipe again. Read More

this was very good. my suggestion is not putting the cherry layer in the middle. I could not get the cheesecake layer to set properly over the cherries. Read More

Great recipe! I only used half the brownie mix. The whole mix was too thick. Also added half cup of Amaretto. Read More
