Chakra Cherry Brownies

The Food Network (Unwrapped) show caught my attention when they had these brownies on their show. They were by simplydivinebrownies. They look awesome and I was wondering if anyone had them or knows the recipe? Thanks for helping.:smiley:

You should be able to find the recipe on The Food Network.

Unfortunately it was an Unwrapped segment - they usually don’t have recipes for that.

Too bad. Cherries and chocolate are made for one another.

I found this recipe and these brownies sound “simply divine” to me.

CHERRY CHEESE BROWNIE SQUARES

1 pkg. fudge brownie mix
1 (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 (14 oz.) Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
1 egg
1 tsp. almond extract
1 can cherry filling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare brownie mix as package directs. Spread into lightly greased 13 x 9 inch baking pan. Bake 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in small mixer bowl, beat cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk, then egg and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract. Pour evenly over brownie layer; bake 25 minutes longer or until set.

Cool, chill. Stir remaining 1/2 teaspoon almond extract into cherry filling. Serve with brownie squares. Refrigerate leftovers. 10-12 servings.

those sound good - but from what I “think” - those chakra cherry brownies have some sort of a cherry crumble topping…???

yes, from the episode on unwrapped, it seems they made brownies, crumbled them up for the crust and top layer and made a brownie mixed with cherries for the center. They looked awesome and my mouth was watering :smiley:

they sound really good too!

Do you feel like experiementing at all?

Chocolate-Cherry Crumb Bars

The flavor of these dense bars is reminiscent of Black Forest cake, a classic German dessert that originated in the country’s southern Black Forest region, renowned for its sour cherries and kirsch (cherry brandy).

Ingredients
Makes 9 large or 1 dozen small.
1 1/4 cups dried cherries, coarsely chopped
1 1/4 cups unsalted butter (2 1/2 sticks), all but 2 tablespoons cut into small pieces
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 teaspoon coarse salt
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (about 3 ounces), lightly toasted
2 cups plus 7 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1 large egg
2 tablespoons kirsch (optional)
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chunks
Vegetable oil cooking spray

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Coat a 9-inch square baking pan with cooking spray; line with parchment paper, allowing a 2-inch overhang. Coat with cooking spray.
  2. Bring cherries, 2 tablespoons butter, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, and the water to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until almost all liquid has been absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in 1/4 cup granulated sugar. Let cool, stirring occasionally, until sugar has dissolved.
  3. Whisk together cocoa powder, salt, brown sugar, toasted coconut, and 2 cups flour in a bowl. Blend in remaining 2 1/4 sticks butter with a pastry blender or your fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal; press 3 lightly packed cups cocoa mixture into prepared pan. Bake until just set, about 20 minutes.
  4. Put egg, remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar, and the kirsch, if using, in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment; mix on medium-high speed until pale, about 4 minutes. Fold in cherry mixture and remaining 7 1/2 teaspoons flour; stir in chocolate. Spread mixture evenly over crust; sprinkle with remaining cocoa mixture.
  5. Bake until a cake tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Run a knife around sides; lift out of pan. Cut into squares. Bars can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 5 days.
