My favourite type of brownie. These are made with dried cherries, extra chocolate and nuts and taste like Black Forest gateaux to me! These make a lovely food gift to bring to Christmas parties.
If the dried cherries stick together too much in the food processor, add 1 tablespoon flour and pulse.
FANTASTIC! I used mini chocolate chips in place of the baking chocolate and regular chocolate chips (that's all I had on hand), and did not chop the cherries and pecans, as I wanted nice pieces of both in the mix. Mine only took about 35 minutes to bake, so be sure to keep check on them, as I think an hour may be too long. These are perfectly moist and very flavorful...a definite keeper~YUM, YUM, YUM!!!!!!!

These brownies are delicious! I made two small changes to the basic recipe based on my previous baking-with-chocolate experience. Since I used unsalted butter, I added 1/4 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. espresso powder to the sugar/egg mixture. These two additions help bring out the chocolate flavor. I plan on making a few batches of these to add to Christmas gift baskets!! My dear hubby is going to be REALLY HAPPY at snack time tonight!!! - 03 Aug 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I ommitted the pecans and added 1/2 cup of maraschino cherries (along with the dried cherries). Cooking time was about 30 - 35 mins. They turned out AH-MAZING!!! Whole thing was gobbled up by my daughters and hubby! Will DEFINITELY make again. SUPER EASY!!! - 10 Dec 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
