There’s something about the cheesecake layer that’s just so pretty, and it offers a unique combination of infused and non-infused filling, resulting in a stellar flavour so the addition of cannabis is hardly even noticeable.

Brownie ingredients

  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • ½ cup cannabutter (softened)
  • ½ cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Cheesecake ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 8 ounces cream cheese (softened)
  • 4 ounces of cherry pie filling
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 9x13 baking pan
  • Aluminum foil
  • Large mixing bowls (2)
  • Whisk
  • Silicone spatula
  • Electric mixer
  • Tablespoon


  1. Line a 9x13 pan with aluminum foil, and lightly grease it.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  • Combine both types of butter, and granulated sugar in a large mixing bowl whisking the three ingredients together until smooth.

  • Add the eggs, and vanilla to the batter, and whisk to combine.

  • Next up, add the flour, salt and cocoa. At this point, the batter will be thicker, so you may need to switch to a spoon to ensure the ingredients are thoroughly mixed together.

  • Pour half of the brownie mixture into the prepared pan and use a silicone spatula to spread it out in an even layer.

  • Moving on to the cheesecake, in a clean mixing bowl, blend the cream cheese, vanilla, egg, and sugar together using an electric mixer until smooth.

  • Spread all of the cream cheese blend overtop of the brownie layer, and do your best to cover every exposed inch.

  • Drop the remaining brownie batter by a spoonful onto the cheesecake layer, scattering the blobs as evenly as possible.

  • Spoon the cherry pie filling in heaps just as you did with the brownie mixture, only this time, try to fill in the gaps between the chocolate scoops.

  • Bake the cherry cheesecake weed brownies in the oven for 35 minutes.

  • Leave the dessert to cool in the pan for at least 30 minutes prior to cutting and serving them.

  • Do not panic if your brownies still jiggle a little bit after removing them from the oven. This is not a sign of being undercooked! The cheesecake layer will harden as the dessert cools.

    Storage tips and tricks

    Since cheesecake is dairy-based, this dessert cannot be stored at room temperature, otherwise, in less than a day, it will spoil. Instead, slice the whole thing into squares and store it in the fridge where it’ll stay fresh for 4 glorious days. Alternatively, cheesecake brownies may be frozen in freezer-safe containers. Just be sure the storage option you choose is airtight, to seal in the freshness and keep out moisture that might ruin them.
