I made this for my sweetie on Sweetest Day. He loved it! I did not put the extra layer of cherries between the brownie and cheesecake and put them all on top and it was just delightful.
I had such high hopes for this recipe, but it was just okay. The cheesecake layer needs some doctoring up to give it more flavor. Like others, I didn't have an 8 oz brownie mix, so I made up a regular-sized one according to the directions on the box and only used about half of it. That worked well enough. Thanks for posting! :)
This was delicious!! I did make one substitution though. I switched out the cherry pie filling for strawberry pie filling instead. This also made way more than what a 9in springform pan would hold, so I made it in a 13x9 baking dish instead. But very yummy!
The 8 oz package of brownie mix was impossible to find - I made the "traditional" brownie mix in a box and baked it for 20 minutes rather than for 12. I also found the one large can of cherry pie filling was 20 oz rather than 21 oz and one can was definitely not enough to cover the top of the baked cheesecake mixture when one cup is used on top of the half baked brownies. Therefore, I opened another can of cherry pie filling and used that can plus what was left over from the first can in order to cover the top of the cheesecake. Turned out delicious and the modified recipe was a big hit!
Big disappointment. Think I'll stick with Jello No-bake from now on.
brownie box mixes come in 11 oz sizes so i was confused on how to make the crust right. the cheesecake part was pretty tasteless...thank god for the cherries.
Mine didn't turn out as pretty, but it tasted alright. I liked the brownie crust with the cheesecake.
This is a yummy, decadent recipe. It's the perfect compromise when you can't decide between cherry pie, cheesecake, or brownies, and it pleases most sweet-tooths. I followed the recipe as is, except that I omitted the chocolate chips in the brownie crust, because it sounded a tad too rich. Ignore the reviewers who left out the cherry layer in between the cheesecake and brownie; that was the best part! A fairly simple, well-received dessert. Note: If your brownie crust didn't turn out right, it me be because you used a whole regular-sized brownie mix, which is 10.75 ounces more than what the recipe calls for.
