These Black Forest Brownies are seriously so delicious! They are inspired from classic Black Forest Cake. The original cake uses cherry liqueur but I am substituting almond extract. 

Ingredients Needed:


Sugar – I use Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Sugar

Brown Sugar – I use Dixie Crystals Light Brown Sugar

Butter – Make sure to melt the butter. You can melt in the microwave or on the stove. 

All-Purpose Flour – Make sure to use all-purpose flour. 

Cocoa Powder – This gives the chocolate flavor to the brownies. 

Almond Extract – Almond Extract adds a nice layer of flavor to the black forest brownies. 

Salt – This helps to balance the sweetness. 

Cherries – I use cherries from cherry pie filling. Use a fork or slotted spoon to separate the cherries from the cherry pie filling. 

Chocolate Chips – I use milk chocolate chips but semi-sweet or even white chocolate chips would also be delicious.
