Cherry Bliss Brownies

Lucky Leaf’s Cherry Bliss Brownies

These are a swirl of cherry cheesecake and brownies, all in one bar.  I made these in an attempt to use up a jar of maraschino cherries and block of cream cheese in my fridge.  Of course, this is a typical modern recipe built on convenience and selling convenience products–so it called for a box of brownie mix, which I don’t tend to keep around.  But I was able to stir up my own brownie mix with a few ingredients, as directed in this brownie mix recipe from Fake-It Frugal.  I substituted drained maraschino cherries for the pie filling with great success.

The homemade brownie mix–there’s really no reason to ever buy a mix when it’s so simple to make your own!


The cheesecake and brownie layers swirled together, just before baking:


The finished brownies–cheesecake, cherries and brownie all in one bite!
