If you like Cherry Cordial Ice Cream then you will love these Brownies.
My step-father love Cherry Cordial ice cream. In fact, that was his favorite ice cream flavor. However, when I was younger I couldn’t stand ice cream with fruit in it. Even still to this day I am particular about certain fruit flavored ice cream flavors. I think it is the fruit pieces that bothers me. Anyway, this man loved Cherry Cordial ice cream and I couldn’t for the life of me understand how someone can become so fixated on one particular flavor. I don’t even like chocolate covered cherry bombs. You know what it is? I am not a fan of maraschino cherries…AT ALL! But, I love fresh dark cherries. I can eat an entire bag to be quite honest. So how did I get to the place to make such wonderful looking brownies? I’m not quite sure but I am sure glad I did.
My step dad has been really bugging me about making him something just for him from my blog. He is a subscriber to my blog. So when I post a delicious recipe, he gets it in his email and all he can do is look at the picture. I live in a different city from my family so he can’t just come over and grab whatever I made. Therefore, he thinks I am teasing him on purpose. Oh sure. I make everything I make deliberately to taunt him. Everything has to be about “Mojo”. That is what I call him. So I guess you can say that these brownies are for him. I am expecting a phone call from him later today tell me to make sure I save those brownies for him. However, he may be really upset when I tell him that my significant other has taken them to work with him. You see, when I make anything this delicious, I already have a destination for them so I don’t get tempted to gorge myself. Although I am not a fan of Maraschino cherries, these babies are pretty darn good and amazing. They are rich and would be perfect served with ice cream. Am I giving anyone any ideas? I thought I would.
Next week, we are taking my mom and step dad out for their birthday’s next week. I think I may surprise him with a half a batch of these brownies. I know he isn’t going to read this blog post so I am not worried about the surprise getting out. He only looks at the blog for the pictures, not the content. In fact, when he visits he always says ” Nicole! Why don’t you make me that one cake with the stuff on it and the icing dripping down from it?” Like I know what that means. With these brownie I will not have to guess. He is going to ask these by name. I guarantee it. So if you are reading this Mojo, I’m already on it.Print
