So many people are happy as they can be with plain brownies. More power to you. There is hardly anything better than a good brownie with nothing at all in it.

Others know that a plain brownie can be taken to a whole new level when you add a few more delicious ingredients. Rolo Brownies and Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies, for instance, are brownies with a tasty twist.

Cherry Pie Brownie Cheesecake Bars

The brownies are made of cocoa powder, heavy cream, mini chocolate chips, and cherry pie filling. The trick is to be careful that the gel in the cherry pie filling isn’t added in the brownie mix.

Remove each cherry from the pie filling using a fork. You don’t have to be too precious about it, but get as much of the gel off as you can before adding to the brownie mix.

How To Make Chocolate Ganache

This is one of my favorite toppings for so many dessert recipes. It’s pretty simple to make and just two ingredients: chocolate chips and whipping cream.

Put the two ingredients in a microwave safe bowl, melt for short 30 second bursts and whisk together. Be careful not to burn it or you’ll have to start all over.

These brownie cheesecake bars are going to be a recipe you’ll want to make over and over!
