This recipe was a HUGE hit at our July 4th family party - this was the first item on the dessert table to be wiped out in minutes! Used regular brownie mix (didn't need gluten-free). The frosting doesn't fare well if left sitting for too long unless refrigerated until just before serving. Also, I read that other reviewers added the apple jelly to the cream cheese, but the purpose of brushing it on is to glaze the fruit; don't mix it in! Thin the jelly (I used peach as I didn't have apple) and brush it on RIGHT BEFORE serving, left sitting for too long will make a runny mess. Other reviewers also added chocolate to the top; I believe this would make this dessert too sweet, almost unpalatable. This works in a 9x13" pan as well.
