A moist brownie dressed up for the holidays with red and green candied cherries.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces unsweetened chocolate

  • 1-1/2 cups butter, at room temperature

  • 6 large eggs

  • 3 cups granulated sugar

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla

  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

  • 1-1/2 cups halved red and green candied cherries, divided (green not pictured)


Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350F and grease and flour two 8-inch square baking pans. Melt chocolate and butter over hot water or in microwave on medium 4 minutes; remove and stir well. Let cool. Beat the eggs until lemon colored. Gradually add sugar, beating until thick, about 3 minutes. Stir in chocolate. Fold in flour, vanilla, nuts if using, and 1 cup of the candied cherries. Pour into prepared pans. Arrange remaining cherries on top. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Do not overbake; they should be very moist in the center. When cool, cut into 2″ squares.
