Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I hope you have a fabulous day and are all treated like princesses or princes whichever is appropriate!

ll post on the same morning and get to check each others recipes out. This month we were assigned Chocolate and Cherry. YUM-O!

I knew exactly what I was going to make when I found out the flavor combination. I went straight to mom’s recipe box and dug out this recipe. It’s been a staple in her repertoire for years. They are so moist and yummy plus the chocolate frosting is hard on top. Sinful. These chocolate brownies have just the right amount of cherry to them and you will love them as much as my family does!

        Thanks Vera!

    • Denise

      These have been a hhuge family favorite for years. I got the recipe from a Pillsbury cookbook in the 1980’s. They are woderfully good and wonderfully easy.

      • Julie Evink

        Ahhh is that where it came from? It’s been passed around so much that I didn’t know it’s original source! Thanks Denise!

    • Michal

      Wow! looks so good!

    • Anna

      Yes but quite a few of your recipes I cannot make because in Europe we don’t have cake mix !! Any basic ones you can recommend (in metrics, please. It’s also annoying to convert each time.) Thank you :))))

    • Dottie

      This is an amazing recipe !
      It is the ONLY cake we have made for our kids birthdays for the last 15 years !
      It’s what they always ask for.
      It is the easiest to make and is so moist with the cherry pie filling in it.
      Chocolate lovers…..this is the cake for you !
