1 package (19.5-21 ounces) fudge brownie mix (plus ingredients to make cake-like brownies)
2 squares (1 ounce each) white chocolate for baking
2 tablespoons milk
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup thawed, frozen whipped topping
1/4 cup cherry or seedless raspberry preserves

1. Preheat oven to 325ºF. Spray Nonstick Cake Pan with nonstick cooking spray. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions for cake-like brownies; pour batter into pan, spreading evenly. Bake 38-40 minutes or until Cake Tester inserted in center comes out with some moist crumbs attached. Cool 20 minutes; invert onto Stackable Cooling Rack and remove pan. Cool completely.

2. Place white chocolate and milk in Small Batter Bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute; stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Microwave an additional 10-20 seconds if necessary.
Cool slightly. In Classic Batter Bowl, combine cream cheese and powdered sugar; mix well. Gradually stir in white chocolate mixture; mix until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Attach desired tip to Easy Accent(R) Decorator. Fill with 1/2 cup of the cream cheese mixture; set aside for garnish.
