Are all the ingredients mixed together, or are part of them ingredients for a topping? Need instructions, please. Thanks in advance!
I am so sorry I just noticed that the directions didn't show up. I am trying to fix it now.
You make the brownies according to the box, use the cherry juice in place of the water. Bake and let cool. Mix the pudding, milk, and cream cheese together blending well til all cream cheese is incorperated. Set aside. In mixing bowl combine milk, vanilla and dream whip. Beat to stiff peaks. Fold whipped topping into cream cheese mixture. Spread evenly over brownies. Drop icecream topping over cream cheese (as much as you want) and swirl in with a knife. Refrigerate til ready to serve. Keep refrigerated. Sorry the directions didn't post, I don't know what happened and I can't edit for some reason.
What does the 2 T. cocoa get added to--the mix or cream mixture?
Add it brownie mix!
