Ingredients

  • 2 bags Chocolate Chip Brownie Brittle 8oz total
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 16 ounces cream cheese 2 blocks, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 heaping cup pitted cherries halved
  • 2/3 cup milk chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350° and line a 11x7 pan with foil. Spray with non-stick spray.
  • Crush Brownie Brittle in the bag until it's completely crumbs.
  • Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl and add brownie crumbs. Mix well.
  • Pat crumbs into the bottom and slightly up the sides of the pan. Bake for 9 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl with a mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla together.
  • Turn off the mixer and add the egg by hand. Mix until just combined. Over mixing the egg can cause the cheesecake to crack.
  • Fold in half the cherries and half the chocolate chips.
  • Pour into crust and top with remaining cherries and chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 20-30 min or until the center just barely jiggles. Let cool at room temperature for a couple hours then cover and chill in fridge.
  • Best served cold.
