Nothing says Valentines Day like decadent dark chocolate brownies with sweet maraschino cherries!
Easy Black Forest Brownies
1 box dark chocolate brownie mix ( I used Ghirardelli dark chocolate)
Water, vegetable oil and egg called for on brownie mix box
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 can Reddi-wip Original Whipped Dairy Cream Topping
10 ounce jar maraschino cherries with stems, drained, stems removed and chopped, (reserving 9 with the stems attached)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease bottom and sides of 9-inch square pan with shortening or cooking spray. Set aside.
Make brownie batter as directed on box. Fold in chocolate chips and chopped maraschino cherries. Spread batter in pan.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the top of the brownies look dry and the edges begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. Cool the brownies in the pan on a wire rack.
Cut brownies into 9 even squares. Top with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry with stem!
