A family favourite that is very decadent. If you love chocolate this is the recipe for you. I don't add the flavourings for the kids so I just make a straight ganache for the glaze. A wonderful recipe that is a winner every time.
Made this several times as a "decadent" brownie. People rave about it and it's always a hit. I don't buy port, so I substitute Grand Marnier in the ganache, and add pecans to the brownies as well as the cherries.
Didn't have port/wine, so I used some fresh pomegranate juice, with mixed dried berries & cherries, and added some vanilla extract, cinnamon and powdered coffee, turned out awzumm. Also, put extra chocolate in the mix ,,/
As everyone else said; fantastic. My husband loves chocolate and went nuts over this recipe. I found them almost too chocolatey (If that's really a word) and would appreciate a small square with something like a citrus sorbet. Mine were too fudge like for me but I think I didn't reduce the Port in the cherries enough (which would take longer than the recipe called for). Also, heads up when reducing the Port for the ganache. Port has a high sugar content and burns easily so keep stirring and keep an eye on it. This is definitely better on day 2 and would even be great without the ganache.
