Brownies are such a popular dessert to make. The recipe for this cherry cheesecake brownie, makes it just a little more special and delicious.
Preheat oven to 3500F.
Line a 9x13 inch baking pan with aluminum foil, letting ends
extend a bit over sides and lightly grease with butter.
In a medium sized bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla together until blended and smooth. Set aside.
In a small pot or a double boiler on the stove top melt the chocolate and butter over low heat.
Remove from the heat.
With wooden spoon, stir the sugar, vanilla and salt into melted chocolate mixture.
Be sure the mixture is only just warm then add the eggs, one at a time, stirring briskly after each egg, until well-blended.
Stir in the flour until combined.
Transfer the brownie batter into prepared baking pan.
Spread the cherry pie filling onto the batter.
Spread the cream cheese topping over the cherry pie filling.
Place into the preheated oven and bake for 45-50 minutes or until brownie edges begin to pull away from sides and cream cheese topping is slightly brown.

When cooled, sprinkle on the chocolate chips and chill for at least 4 hours before cutting.
After chilling, lift out the brownie by using the foil that lines the pan.
