Chocolate Cherry Brownies
You could pick these up with your hands and eat them like a regular brownie but they're a little messy with the cherry filling. I'd recommend serving these on dessert plates...maybe even serving them slightly warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (1 cup for brownies, 1 cup for topping)
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Line a 9" x 9" baking pan with parchment paper.
  3. In a small bowl, melt 1 cup of chocolate chips with ¾ cup butter in microwave. Melt on 30 second intervals, stirring after each 30 seconds, just until chocolate is melted. You want this melted but not hot.
  4. In a separate medium bowl, stir flour, cocoa powder, and salt together until well combined.
  5. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
  6. Stir melted chocolate mixture in with egg mixture. Stir until well blended.
  7. Stir in dry ingredients with wet ingredients. Stir just until mixed.
  8. Pour brownie batter into prepared pan.
  9. Spread cherry pie filling evenly over brownie batter.
  10. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips over top of pie filling.
  11. Bake for 35-38 minutes.
  12. Once out of the oven, use a spoon to spread the melted chocolate chips on top evenly over brownies.
  13. Let cool at least two hours before cutting into squares.
