Dark Chocolate & Dark Cherry Brownies

Recipe: Dark Chocolate & Dark Cherry Brownies

I know it probably isn’t the best topic to post about after a heavy Christmas break full of food…BUT I made some amazing dark chocolate & dark cherry brownies and wanted to share the love!

If you are worried about how many calories there are in these brownies…maybe just look away now?

Ingredients

  • 150g dark chocolate
  • 115g salted butter
  • 225g soft brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 150g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 200g frozen dark cherries (available in frozen sections of most large Sainsburys and Tesco stores)
  • 200g dark chocolate chips

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. Grease a baking tin, medium sized – 20 x 30 cm is ideal.
  3. Get a cup full of the frozen cherries and leave to the side for now.
  4. Break the solid dark chocolate into pieces.
  5. Place in a small heat-proof bowl.
  6. Melt the solid dark chocolate in the bowl over a pan of simmering water on the hob (medium heat..let’s not burn the poor chocolate).
  7. Next on the list is to get mixing the butter and sugar together in a large bowl.
  8. Then stir in the melted chocolate and vanilla extract also.
  9. Keep Mixing!
  10. Break the eggs into a bowl and beat with a fork.
  11. Add the eggs to the butter mixture and stir in.
  12. Following this then add the flour and cocoa powder in gradually whilst still stirring.
  13. Final stages now!
  14. Stir in the dark chocolate chips.
  15. Now get your frozen cherries and cut them into quarters and get them mixed in!
  16. Once you’re happy with the consistency of the mixture (no lumps!) you can move on to the next stage.
  17. Pour the mixture into the pre-greased baking tin.
  18. Bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
  19. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a cooling rack.
  20. Cut into pieces and ENJOY!
  21. Maybe enjoy with some ice cream! 🙂
