I am a total fan of cherries, and this wow-worthy chocolate treat that's so simple to make, is sure to be a winner with friends or family.
1 Pkg Cream Cheese that's been softened
1/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Chopped and well drained maraschino cherries (Or use regular cherries)
1 Tbs Maraschino Cherry Juice (Or use regular cherry juice)
1 Box Betty Crocker Ultimate Fudge Brownie Mix
1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees or 325 degrees in a dark or nonstick pan. Grease the bottom of the square pan with cooking spray of your choice. In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, cherries, cherry juice and 1 egg with a spoon, then set aside. In another bowl, combine the brownie mix, pouch of chocolate fudge, oil, 1/4 cup water and the other egg until well blended.
Spread 1/2 the batter in the pan, then spread the cream cheese mixture over the batter. Carefully spoon the remaining batter on top, spreading gently to cover. Bake 43-47 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick 1 inch from the side of the pan comes out almost clean. Cool for about 1 1/2 hours before cutting. If you're fortunate to have any left, store covered in the fridge.
JUST ONE MORE THING
August 4 at 10pm can't get here fast enough when the Season 2 premiere of Playing House is back on USA! One day last year, I watched the first episode of this crazy sitcom, then found myself hooked until the season ended, causing me to suffer withdrawal.
When viewing this program, you'll be amazed at the chemistry between these two actresses Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair, and that's because they are best friends in real life. The series touches on things that you've probably experienced at some time, and somehow making you crack up. There's just this super funny vibe that you can connect with no matter what the topic is. Even better, there are occasions that they stray from the script and it's hilarious! If you just want to have a real good time with the girls, grab some popcorn, sandwiches and lemonade, then binge on this wonderful program ON Demand, or on-line before the new season starts.
