Cherry Cocoa Brownie Recipe

Oh man. Have you ever tried Alton Brown’s recipe for cocoa brownies? This recipe has become a staple of mine and while they taste spectacular just following the recipe straight, I make my version even more decadent by adding chocolate chips, chopped up maraschino cherries and some of the maraschino cherry juice. Just follow his recipe as is, cut out a quarter cup of the white sugar and swap for a quarter cup of the maraschino cherry juice. I toss in a big handful of chopped maraschino cherries to add some crisp texture and then two handfuls of semi-sweet or milk chocolate chocolate chips for a bit of bite as well. The brownies come out so moist (even more so because of the juice I add in), rich and the best part is that this is a really easy brownie recipe you won’t have to slave away in the kitchen to make them, but they taste so fancy, everyone will think that you did. Want to make it sound even more fancy? Instead of calling them brownies, just tell people you made a cake instead, because it can pass for one. Make sure that you have a glass of milk handy, you’re going to need it!
