I prefer moist, fudgy brownies and this recipe is my new favorite! Three types of chocolates are used in these decadent brownies — cocoa powder and semisweet chocolate chips in the brownie batter . . . dark chocolate in the ganache. Dried cherries are added to give the brownies a tart and fruity taste. Port (a Portuguese fortified wine) is used to macerate the dried cherries and to boost the flavor of the ganache topping. Serve the brownie with a scoop of ice cream for the ultimate indulgence.

Happy Friday dear readers!

Thanks! I love these brownies since they’re so moist and flavorful. I love the dried cherries.
These are just gorgeous! I’m usually a brownie purist but I would love to get my hands on these.
