Chocolate Cherry Chip Brownies

There are so many good Brownie recipes and so little time to taste them all, but I do keep trying. These Brownies happened because I was browsing the baking aisle at the grocery store last week and came across cherry flavored baking morsels. I had not tried them in a recipe before, nor had I seen them in my local grocery store, so I tossed a couple of bags into my shopping cart.

With the flavor of chocolate covered cherries in the back of my mind, I decided I would adapt a brownie recipe for the cherry chips. The chocolate/cherry flavor combo is one I love, and I'm glad I thought of adding the cherry chips to my Brownies. I'm going to be looking for additional ways to use these tasty little cherry chips, and I'm always open for new recipes if anyone has an idea to send my way.

Chocolate Cherry Chip Brownies

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 cup butter, melted and divided
1/2 cup boiling water
2 cups sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup cherry flavored chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, mix together cocoa powder and baking soda; stir in 1/3 cup melted butter. Add boiling water, stirring until the mixture thickens. Add sugar, eggs, and remaining 1/3 cup melted butter; stir until smooth. Add flour, vanilla, and salt to the mixture; stir until blended. Stir in both kinds of chips. Spread mixture evenly in prepared pan. Bake 35 - 40 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely in pan on wire rack before cutting into squares.
