Chocolate and cherries marry in this decadent cheesecake made easy with a brownie mix.
box (1 lb 2.4 oz) Betty Crocker™ Original Supreme Premium brownie mix
cup butter or margarine, melted
packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
cups whipping (heavy) cream
can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling
Heat oven to 350ºF. Stir together 3/4 cup of the brownie mix (dry), flour and the butter. Press in bottom of ungreased springform pan, 9x3 inches, or square pan, 9x9x2 inches.
Beat cream cheese in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed about 2 minutes, scraping bowl frequently, until smooth. Add remaining brownie mix and the whipping cream. Beat on medium speed, scraping bowl frequently, until smooth. Pour over crust in pan.
Bake 45 to 50 minutes for springform pan, 35 to 40 minutes for 9-inch square pan, or until set; cool 20 minutes. Run metal spatula along side of cheesecake to loosen before and after refrigerating. Spread pie filling over cheesecake. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. Cover and refrigerate any remaining cheesecake.
Removing the dessert from the pan will be easier if you press the crust rather than pack it too firmly.
