The heart-shaped pan is a nice touch. I inherited mine from my (wonderful) step-mother I believe. Or maybe it was my father-in-laws. Not sure, but now it is mine! (Muahahahahhhaaaaa.)

Or, I would bet all my dollars that this Sweetheart Brownie Bliss would be just as delicious in square form. Or round. Just pick a pan and go with it.

Some of you might be wondering what kind of witchcraft I practice to get this brownie to come out of the pan perfectly. I mean…absolutely perfectly.

(Anyone who has cooked a pan of brownies before will appreciate this wizardry.)

Here’s the how-to:

  • Use a non-stick pan.
  • Spray the pan liberally with butter-flavored non stick spray. To the point where it is dripping.
  • Pray.
  • Let the brownies cool in the pan for 10 minutes with the pan sitting on a wire rack.
  • Pray.
  • Invert quickly on your cake plate.
  • Pray harder.
  • Give the pan a quick smack and a little jiggle and pull it off with your eyes closed.

Booyah. Works every time.  (Well, I am a liar. It worked THIS TIME.)

You get all of the classic flavors of a cherry cheesecake with the fudgy brownie “crust”. You would think this would be an over-the-top rich recipe. But it isn’t too sweet.  It is perfect. The light and creamy filling is the perfect balance for the brownies and cherries.

Ingredients

  • 1 box fudge brownie mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Butter flavored non-stick spray
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp lemon juice
  • 8 oz tub whipped topping
  • 21 oz can cherry pie filling

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Liberally spray a 8 or 9 inch non-stick cake pan with butter flavored non stick spray. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, combine the brownie mix, eggs, water, and oil. Stir with a spoon by hand until combined.
  • **Your mix may call for different amounts. Mix to package directions for "fudgy".
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until a pick inserted in the center comes out slightly moist.
  • **Don't overbake or underbake. If the pick comes out wet, they aren't done. If the pick comes out totally dry, they are overdone. Tip: Start checking 5 minutes before time has expired. If the pick seems like they are getting close, take them out. They will cook a little longer in the warm pan.
  • Place the pan on a wire rack. Cool 10 minutes. Carefully invert onto a serving plate. Tap gently to remove the brownie. Cool completely.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and lemon juice with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. The mixture will be smooth and creamy.
  • Fold in the whipped topping by hand with a rubber spatula.
  • Spread the mixture on the brownie. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
  • Before serving, pour the cherry pie filling over the top.
