Chocolate Cherry Brownies

Cherry Glaze

  • 1 tbsp cherry juice
  • ½ cup powdered sugar


  • First, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line an 8 inch by 8 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Add eggs and coconut sugar (or brown sugar) to the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat for 2 to 3 minutes or until light and frothy.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter. Once melted, pour in chocolate chips. Stir until completely smooth and creamy.
  • Pour melted chocolate mixture into bowl of stand mixer. Mix for 1 minute or until combined.
  • Sift in cocoa powder and cornstarch. Then add vanilla extract and stir to combine.
  • Pour batter into lined baking pan. Top with halved pitted cherries and extra chocolate chips if desired.
  • Bake for 25 to 28 minutes or until the middle looks set and toothpick inserted comes out mostly clean. Mine were perfect at 27 minutes.
  • Remove brownies from oven. Allow them to cool for at least an hour in the pan before topping with glaze.
  • While brownies are cooling, make glaze. Add cherry juice and powdered sugar to a bowl. Stir until combined. If it is too thick, add a touch more cherry juice or milk.
  • Once brownies are cool, drizzle with glaze. Carefully slice and serve!


  • Use high quality chocolate chips for best results.  I used dark chocolate chips.
  • Stir melted butter and chocolate chips until completely smooth and creamy.
  • Bake brownies until the middle looks set.  Mine were perfect at 27 minutes.
  • Store brownies covered at room temperature for up to 3 days.
  • Store in fridge for up to 4 days.
  • These freeze well!
