Yummy Recipe...Cherry Chocolate Cheesecake

Okay, like every other year my New Year's Resolution is to get in shape and lose weight. Last year I started off with a bang and had lost 10 lbs. doing weight watchers before I discovered I was pregnant. Of course I had to indulge in all those pregnancy cravings and packed on 26 lbs. with this last pregnancy. I'm 7 lbs. shy now of my pre-pregnancy weight, but I could stand to lose a lot more so we (hubby and I) will be starting weight watchers again.

However, I saw this dessert over the holidays that I knew I had to make. I made it the other day to take to the office staff at my Dr's appt. when I went in for my 6 week appt. They were awesome throughout my pregnancy and considering I was in twice a week for several months I got to know them all well (besides it being my 2nd high risk pregnancy and they were all there for the last one as well). I then made one at home for us, but forgot that I had it in the oven and overcooked the cheesecake. We tasted it (crappy) so I bought the stuff to make it again.

Weight Watchers will have to "weight" until next week. The recipe for the Cherry Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake can be found here. I also wish I had taken a picture of it before I put it in the container, but the crust part is the brownie and there is cherry in between the cheesecake and brownie crust as well.

Hopefully when I make it tomorrow I won't forget it's in the oven!
