Super-fabulous chocolate-cherry brownie bites.

It's your lucky day.
I am hooking you up with how to make THESE:
Now, I want to be very very clear and say that this is not an original recipe, it is an adaptation of this recipe, which I would have used except the main ingredient is not available in grocery stores in my area.

So I had to improvise. I ended up with a nice little easy recipe that is fairly inexpensive to make. And I'll share that with you, friends!

So here we go.

1. Go purchase your favorite brownie recipe. I say go for the fancy one with chocolate chunks, but whatever you want will work. Make sure it calls for adding water.

2. Get 2 jars of maraschino cherries and a can of chocolate frosting. Not the whipped kind.

3. Make the brownie recipe. Except substitute cherry juice for the water called for in the brownie mix, and add some chopped up cherries. About 1/3 cup. More or less. Suit yourself.

4. Grease mini-muffin tins. Mine made 36 mini-muffins. Put the batter in the muffin tins, being careful not to overfill. Bake about 12 minutes at 350. Let them cool and then carefully remove from the pans (most definitely the most difficult part!)

5. Scoop out a dollop of the chocolate frosting, and microwave it for 30 seconds. Stir, and then dip the tops of the brownie-muffins in it. Then stick a cherry in the icing. See, easy!

Now, these did not keep well. I'd suggest making them the day you are using them. Or ice only what you can use that day and freeze the rest?

But they are fabulous! So fabulous! Happy eating, friends!
