WOW!! This was a really good dessert!! I made it today and it was a big hit. Really tasty! I did make one modification, I put a chocolate ganache type topping on it. It is a definite "make again" recipe! thanks for sharing.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (12 ounce) jar maraschino cherries
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 12 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (9 inch) chocolate cookie pie crust

  1. Drain maraschino cherries, reserving 2 teaspoons juice. Cut cherries into quarters; set aside. In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and reserved cherry juice. Add eggs; beat just until combined. Fold in chocolate chips and reserved cherries.
  2. Pour into crust (crust will be full). Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with chocolate-covered cherries.
