Brownie mix, cream cheese and sweet cherry pie filling—doesn’t that just sound like a dessert combination made in heaven? I knew I’d be a fan of this recipe before I even tried it.

Cherry Bliss Brownies Recipe
I’m a pretty big fan of easy brownies and bars. In fact, you’ll find lots of these type of recipes on my blog, including my amazing chocolate raspberry bars, these classic cherry kuchen bars and my favorite chewy pecan pie bars.
I love this type of grab-and-go dessert recipe, particularly around the holidays.
Growing up, my grandpa always had a store-bought cherry pie on hand. I’m pretty sure cherry pie was his favorite dessert.
I wish he were still with us to taste these yummy cherry bliss brownies because I’m sure he would have loved them.
The good news about this recipe is that it’s really easy to make thanks to the fact that you start with a boxed brownie mix.
No sense in messing with a good thing. Let’s face it, boxed brownies taste pretty good when you don’t have time to make your own homemade brownies.
Now, have to give all the credit to Lucky Leaf for this recipe. This is not a sponsored post, I just grabbed this great recipe off the back of their can of cherry pie filling.
I’ve found some of my favorite recipes on product packaging!
So, yes, these brownies are yummy, but they also have something else going on for them.
THEY ARE SO PRETTY! It never hurts to have pretty desserts. :)
