For the base:
• 1 ½ cups Brownie Brittle, crushed
• 1 tablespoon butter
For the filling:
• 1 can cherry pie filling
• 1 cup chocolate chips, melted
• 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
• 1 cup heavy cream
• ½ cup confectioners’ sugar
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the garnish:
• Crushed and Broken pieces of Brownie Brittle
Crush the Brownie Brittle in a food processor until it resembles fine crumbs. Add the melted butter to the crumbs and mix thoroughly. Press the base into serving dishes. You can tamp it down with a honey dripper if you have one. They work perfectly for small serving dishes. Set the serving dishes aside.
Spoon the cherry pie filling evenly into each dish until it comes about halfway up the side. Set aside.
In a double boiler (or microwave if you prefer), melt the chocolate until it’s smooth. Allow to cool considerably. Set aside.
In a large bowl mix the cream cheese until it becomes slightly fluffy with no lumps. Add the cooled, melted chocolate to it, and mix until combined thoroughly. Set aside.
In a stand mixer whisk the heavy cream on low speed, gradually increasing to high, and mix until it becomes fluffy. It should form soft peaks. Fold in the confectioners’ sugar and mix until combined.
Add the chocolate cream cheese mixture to the whipped cream/confectioners’ sugar mixture slowly, mix on low speed until combined. Add the vanilla extract and mix briefly to combine.

Love Is in the Air & the Brownie Brittle!
Weddings are special, and when it’s a Brownie Brittle wedding, it’s extra special. And when you add to it that it’s your son marrying our Brownie Brittle’s head of customer service, it’s extra extra special!
Watching my son and his bride stand up to recite their vows in front of my family and friends, his wife’s family and friends, and our extended Brownie Brittle family … well, that pretty much is the icing on the best cake anyone could ever make.
And this was a spectacular event. As the mother-of-the-groom, I had to be cautious with any suggestions I had for the wedding festivities. Lucky for me, I adore my daughter-in-law and her family, so it was fairly easy to do. I’ve had so much fun over the past several years walking the red carpet, that I thought it would be exciting to add a bit of “Golden Globes” glamour to the wedding. I was thrilled that Stevi and Devin agreed. So, wedding guests were treated to glasses of champagne as they exited their cars and headed for the wedding ceremony. Guests had the chance to stop at the “step & repeat” wall (that’s the wall that has all the logos behind the celebrities when they walk the red carpet – I think I used to call it the logo wall), where the paparazzi were ready to take their pictures. And one of my favorite treats (and that of the ladies at the wedding) was a basket full of Laura Mercier lip gloss for the taking that sat in the bathroom so guests could feel pampered.
Next up? The desserts. And when Sheila G gets involved in desserts, I DO desserts! We all decided we wanted some custom Brownie Brittle desserts to actually BE the centerpieces on each and every table. How great is that? You know what I always say, eat dessert first! We had 3-tiered displays filled with my custom-creations. There were:
Double Nut Brownie Brittle Squares
White Chocolate Cherry Brownie Brittle Bars
Brownie Brittle Peanut Butter Balls
Toffee Crunch Brownie Brittle Mini Cupcakes
Chocolate Dipped Strawberries with Brownie Brittle
Brownie Brittle Caramel Pretzel Rods
Me with my son, Devin, granddaughter, Juliana, new daughter-in-law, Stevi, daughter, Rachael and son-in-law, Pete.
And I guess I should also share some really big news with you. I will be releasing a brand NEW cookbook called Butter ‘n’ Chocolate coming out in late summer. Several of the above desserts you will also be able to make yourselves with the recipes in that cookbook. If you want to be the first to know about the cookbook’s release (and get access to a signed copy), just fill out this form, and we’ll be sure you’re the first to know!

In 1992, Sheila G. Mains, better known in the food business as Sheila G, took a treasured family recipe for fudge brownies and baked her way into a thriving business. You may even have tasted one of her rich, dense squares of heaven at some of our nation’s finest restaurants and theme parks. So, where exactly did the inspiration for her scrumptious new Brownie Brittle™ snack come from? Read more...
