Sooooooo Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and I have one question for you: who’s ready for a brownie? Not just any run of the mill brownie though. Are you ready for a decadent, chewy, dark chocolatey brownie filled with cherry filled chocolate chips? Call it a hunch, but I’m thinking you are.
When it comes to desserts, I will gladly eat cakes. I’ll eat cookies. I’ll eat some pies. Ice cream. Cheesecakes.
But then there are brownies.
Brownies are on a level all their own. Brownies are my all time favorite dessert. Ever. In the history of desserts.
But no nuts. Absolutely never ever add nuts to one of my brownies.
You can, and should however, add chocolate chips. And especially, cherry filled chocolate chips.
I use the same cherry filled chocolate chips that I used for this Dark Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake that I made last December. They worked wonderfully in that cheesecake and are as equally as scrumptious in these decadent brownies.
In addition to adding the cherry chocolate chips to these brownies, I also tried something else different. Instead of using only granulated sugar, I used half granulated sugar and half dark brown sugar. I think that it helped make these brownies even more decadent and chewy and I’m pretty sure I’m going to add brown sugar to my brownies from now on.
I could tell you more how about delicious these are. How chewy. How fudgy, How unbelievably chocolaty they are. But instead I’m just going to go ahead and end this post now so you can get in the kitchen and make them yourself.
And since tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and all, I recommend resisting the urge to eat the whole pan and save one for your sweetie…if you can.

Wow, these are so dark and fudgy! I’m intrigued that they are made with all cocoa powder. They’re going to be super chocolatety. Is that a word? :-) As for the cherry filled chips, I really must pay more attention in the grocery store. I’ve never heard of these.
