Black Forest Brownie Dessert


  • 1 jar (10 oz) maraschino cherries (about 30 cherries), drained
  • 1 pkg (18-21 oz or 450 g) brownie mix (plus ingredients to make cake-like brownies)
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) almond extract
  • 12   cherry cordial candies
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) thawed frozen whipped topping
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) semi-sweet chocolate morsels, grated


  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF (160ºC). Spray cups of Brownie Pan with nonstick cooking spray. Finely chop cherries. Combine brownie mix, eggs, water, oil and almond extract; mix according to package directions for cake-like brownies. Fold in chopped cherries; divide batter evenly among wells of pan.

  2. Bake 22-24 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in centers of brownies comes out clean. Remove pan from oven. Carefully invert pan onto cooling rack; remove pan. Turn brownies over.
