These are yummy. Not too sickening sweet; they're just right. The drizzled chocolate got hard when chilled and that was a great addition. I took these to a valentine banquet at church so we wouldn't eat the whole thing in two days. I made this for the "Chocolate" tag game in the Spain and Portugal forum. Nummy num num.

Nice!!!! Great flavor combination and really easy to make. I loved the cream cheese topping! I would make this again, but cut down on the cherry topping as it overpowered the cream cheese topping. Thanks Sharon!! Made for a Seasoned Sailor and his Sassy Sirens! ZWT6

These were tasty, but I was hoping the three layers would be better integrated, somehow. The cream cheese layer made it all a bit cold. Still, the flavors were good. I will continue my search for the perfect Black Forest Brownie. :)

These are GREAT! We made these for the Kids Cooking challenge during Zaar World Tour 4, Chic Chefs team. They are kid tested and approved. (The adults liked them, too) Thanks Sharon for a great recipe.

This is a wonderful treat. We opted out of the chocolate drizzle, but kept true to the recipe otherwise. Thanks Sharon, for another keeper!

Sharon, these are delicious. I made them for our Rose Society potluck Christmas party. The pan was cleaned. Everyone raved about them.I made them like the recipe stated. Melted Dark chocolate in a small plastic bag in microwave, sniped the corner of the bag & drizzled the chocolate over the cherries. Will make these again as they can be made ahead & refrigerated. Thanks for posting!

My family oooohed and ahhhed over these brownies, and they're so pretty, too! I did the recipe exactly as written, but used a little more chocolate on top. I used a pastry bag to add the chocolate to the top. I'll make this again, it was wonderful.

Took this to a potluck last night. Got lots of compliments & brought home an empty pan so I'd say they liked it. I subbed cold coffee for the water in the brownie mix (personal preference)& scattered chocolate curls & shavings over the top rather than the drizzle. Great make ahead dish! Thanks!
