Happy Valentine's Day, my Valentines!
Yay for new cooking challenges!
Today I'm participating in Sheryl's Behind the Curtain Dessert Challenge. The two ingredients this month were CHOCOLATE and CHERRY.
I had bookmarked this recipe ages ago, and knew this was the perfect opportunity to use it.
I'd recommend putting them in the fridge to harden and set up better. I popped mine in the freezer for like 10 minutes then set it out at room temperature and it wasn't as set as I'd like it to be, as you can see from the pictures. Hopefully we'll make these again soon and I can take a better photo.
And I used milk chocolate chips instead of semi sweet because that's what I had on hand.

Prepare brownies and bake as directed on the box. Let cool.

In the bowl of a mixer, combine butter and 5 tablespoons juice from the maraschino cherries. Beat until the butter is smooth. Slowly add powdered sugar and beat until combined. Increase mixer speed to medium high and beat for about a minute and a half. Roughly chop cherries. Fold chocolate chips into the filling with the cherries. Spread over the top of cooled brownies.
