1 box (16 oz) Betty Crocker Supreme original brownie mix
Water, vegetable oil and egg called for on brownie mix box
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup coarsely chopped maraschino cherries, drained and patted dry
Optional for topping:
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped maraschino cherries, drained and patted dry
(see my tips below)

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!


1:  Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom of 9-inch square pan with shortening or cooking spray.

2:  Mix brownie batter as directed on box. Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips (save remaining 1/4 cup) and 1/4 cup cherries. Spread in pan.

3:  Bake 28 to 31 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean.  Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips over top of baked brownies. Cool 30 minutes then remove from pan and cut.

4:  Optional: You can sprinkle more chopped cherries on top and also drizzle melted chocolate on top after brownies are cooled.

Darlene’s Tips: Serve warm with two scoops of ice cream, chocolate chip and cherry vanilla! You can warm individual brownies by heating in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time until warm. Drizzle with chocolate syrup.  You can also add nuts to the brownie mix.  These maraschino cherries are awesome!  My mother always has these in her little fridge.
