Brownie Cherry Cheesecake

Just let that title and picture soak in a minute…………I’ll wait.

I’ve had this recipe tucked away in a cabinet in my kitchen for months.  I’m not really sure why I had it in there, because it’s not a place I keep recipes.  I think it first sat on my counter for a month or two so I would make it, should the need ever arise.  But I got tired of it sitting on the counter so I stuck it in a cabinet, and every now and then it would fall out………as if saying “MAKE ME”.

So the other day when it tumbled out of the cabinet for the umpteenth time, I decided there was no NEED for a cheesecake other than I just wanted to EAT cheesecake!……….hence, the need had arisen!

What caught my attention most was BROWNIE Cheesecake.  Being big brownie lovers in this house, I knew adding cheesecake to the brownies could only equal pure bliss!

I mean look at that, would you…………

In between that layer of brownie and creamy cheesecake is cherry pie filling……..oh but wait! there’s more.

Take a slice, put it on a plate, crown it with a touch more cherry pie filling, a big dollop of COOL WHIP whipped topping and a drizzle of chocolate syrup and you’ve got your self one fiercely decadent dessert!

Tips For Brownie Cherry Cheesecake

By adding a fluffy cloud of COOL WHIP along with your own special touches, like chocolate syrup or sprinkles, can make any homemade or even store-bought desserts extra special.

This Brownie Cherry Cheesecake is not too rich, creamy and delicious and will certainly impress any guests!

I do have one note to pass on about the recipe.  The brownie in this recipe is meant to be more of a crust, than a typical “brownie” I found it to be a little tough.  It was fine to eat and very delicious, yet hard to maneuver with a fork, which was odd, because it wasn’t hard to eat.  So, the next time I may just try making a regular batch of brownies for the bottom……..but either way you make them, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed one bit.

I still managed to eat the whole cake piece!
