Like most people; during the many holidays throughout the year, I like to find as many recipes that I can- that let's me serve the colors of the observance. Colors like green for St. Patrick's Day, orange for Halloween, red for Valentines Day and red & green for Christmas.  Well these cherry topped brownies have been added to my list for red foods for sure.  This recipe has also been added to my list of brownie recipes found on the bottom of this post under "labels.

Note: This is very easy dessert to make. Also remember this recipe for National Brownie Day which is celebrated December 8th and National Cream Cheese Brownie Day too.
