"A rich chocolately treat that you can share with your guests. I tried to lighten it up a bit for you! With the maraschino cherries on top, it looks like a very special dessert. This is from Kraft. Enjoy!"

    Very rich and delicious. I've made these 4-5 times over the years, most recently as a birthday dessert.

    These were decent but I wasn't crazy about them. For one thing the brownie mix I chose to use wasn't all that great, but that is certainly not this recipes fault. Secondly, when eaten warm out of the oven, the mixture of cream cheese and peanut butter was really TANGY, even my mom commented on the strange super tangy taste that it had. But, when eaten room temperature the next day that tanginess had really calmed down. Lastly, I would recommend using the whole container of cream cheese because it seemed like there wasn't exactly enough of the filling in any of the brownies. Not sure if I will make this again or not but I did enjoy trying something new.
