Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8"-x-8” baking dish with butter and sprinkle with flour.
Prepare brownie batter according to package instructions.
In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese, vanilla, egg, and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Stir in the cherries.
Pour brownie batter into the prepared baking dish. Dollop the cream cheese–cherry mixture over the brownie layer, then run a knife through cream cheese mixture to create a swirled effect.
Bake until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the brownie comes out mostly clean, about 45 minutes. (A few moist crumbs are okay!) Let cool in pan completely, then slice and serve small squares.
