TWD: Cherry Fudge Brownies

In my opinion the imperfectly flaky top and the chewy cherry interior didn't need the topping that transforms this simple brownie into a delicious torte. It's a good thing too because I didn't have all the ingredients for the Tuesdays with Dorie recipe chosen by April from Short + Rose.

Sure I coulda just ran out and got them, but its been a weird few months... and being frugal is the name of the game. I skipped the cherry directions entirely... folding in some chopped dark chocolate covered cherries that I happened to have in the cupboard already. It turned out pretty good too. In fact I don't think my honey simply fell asleep last night... oh no he fell into a deep chocolate coma after consuming two slices of this baby!

Your slice looks delicious! Your simplifications were right on the mark; this was a delicious chocolate treat even without the topping.

Being in a chocolate coma is the way to go.It makes for a good night indeed.

Thanks for baking with me this week! I bet the chocolate covered cherries were excellent in this!

Sounds like an excellent variation. Well done!

Romaine said...

"Deep chocolate coma?" Yep, that's the way I felt too after just a couple of bites. Good idea about your cherries.

Your brownie looks delicious! Your honey certainly thought so! =) I skipped the whole cherry part too, I made it for my 12 year old niece with Snicker bars instead!
