Yeah! I am so excited today AND I still got to use cherries after that disaster yesterday. This is another easy off the box recipe. Simple but still pretty, and they were delicious!
1 box any brownie mix (family size)
2 pkg (8oz each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c chopped and well drained maraschino cherries
1/2 can of cherry pie filling, drained of syrup ( I even towel dried them a bit)
Heat oven to 350º
Grease the bottom of 13x9" pan with cooking spray. Beat cream cheese, sugar, maraschino cherries and 1 egg in medium bowl with whisk until smooth and set aside. Make your brownie mix according to directions on the box. I then spread half of the brownie batter into prepared pan and dotted it with pie filling cherries. Next, gently spread cream cheese mixture over the batter. Now spread remaining brownie batter gently over cream cheese and sprinkle with the rest of your pie filling cherries.
Bake in 350º oven for 40-43 minutes or until done.
Cool completely and refrigerate to let it set up. Dig in.
