  • In a large heavy saucepan, heat butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth; cool slightly.

  • Whisk in eggs, sugar and vanilla. Add flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt; stir until combined. Pour batter into prepared baking pan; spread evenly. Arrange cherries evenly over top of batter, gently pressing in.

  • Bake until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool slightly. Serve warm brownies topped with ice cream and cherry sauce.

*PREP TIP

If using frozen cherries, measure them frozen and then give them a couple of hours to thaw. Drain the cherries and pat them dry with paper towels before placing on the brownies.
