Christmas Tradition: Chocolate Cherry Brownies

Grandma Wicks
We're only 1 week from Christmas and that means BAKING! So today I'd like to share one of my all-time favorite Christmas indulgences.  This recipe comes straight from my grandmother and it has been served at every Christmas Eve since I can remember.  She is sadly no longer with us, but I have continued the tradition in her stead. These brownies are decadently rich, super satisfying, and incredibly easy!  Perfect for any busy mom.   Please enjoy this fantastic brownie recipe!

Grandma Wicks' Chocolate Cherry Brownies

1 Package Dark Chocolate Brownie Mix (or Fudge Brownie mix)
1 21oz. Can Cherry Pie Filling
1 tsp. Almond Extract
2 Eggs (Beaten)

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Stir well by hand until combined.  Pour mixture into a 13" x 9" greased pan.  Bake 25-30 minutes or until you can insert a tooth pick and it comes out clean. Set aside.

1 cup Sugar
5 Tbs. Butter
1/3 cup milk
1 cup Dark or Semi-sweet chocolate chips

Combine the first 3 ingredients in a small saucepan.  Bring to a boil.  Stir constantly for 1 minute.  Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate chips.  Mix until smooth.  Pour over brownies and smooth with a knife.  Allow to cool completely before serving.
