  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Make brownie batter as directed on box for cakelike brownies. Spread in pan. Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl frequently. Beat in pie filling and 1 1/2 cups of the whipped topping until blended. Spread over brownie.
  • 4
    In another medium bowl, beat dry pudding mixes and milk with whisk about 2 minutes or until thick. Beat in 1/2 cup of the whipped topping. Spread over cream cheese layer. Drop remaining 2 cups whipped topping by spoonfuls over pudding layer; carefully spread. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours.
  • 5
    When ready to serve, sprinkle nuts and cherries on top. In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate fudge topping uncovered on High 10 to 20 seconds or until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over bars. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pieces.

Expert Tips

  • To quickly soften cream cheese, remove from wrapper, and place on microwavable plate; microwave uncovered on High about 15 seconds or just until softened.
  • If desired, add a few drops red gel food color with the pie filling for a pinker color.
  • Use remaining cherry pie filling for an ice cream topping or another favorite dessert.
