Valentine's Day Cherry Cheese Brownies Recipe
Looking for something fancy to serve on Valentine’s Day? Most would agree that chocolate and cherries are traditional ingredients for valentine treats, so these Valentine’s Day Cherry Cheese Brownies are absolutely perfect. They are also delicious and addicting: Cheesecake and cherry fillings are swirled into extra moist brownies made easy with the use of the versatile Mom’s Brownie Mix which is easy to make and keeps on the pantry shelf for months. If you don’t already have it on the shelf, it is a good idea to make it now – it takes only about 20 minutes and saves lots of time when making brownies and other desserts.

These brownies are extra moist, and are ideal to serve as a dessert after a romantic dinner. They are also great for snacks and stay moist for several days. For an extra special dessert, place a brownie on a plate, cover with high quality vanilla ice cream, and top with warm fudge sauce. You can’t go wrong.
