Monday Munchies ~ Decadent Cherry Mousse Brownies

 


I don't know about you, but the holidays around our house have always been filled with yummy goodies. Some more yummy than others if that's even possible. I have a few absolute favorite recipes we collected and made around Momma's kitchen table over the years. And even though I no longer have the recipe box where they all were stored, I have been able to replace them from family members who were lucky enough to also be given a copy of some of these cherished recipes. Or I have been able to duplicate them fairly closely. Today I give you my version of:


Decadent Cherry Mousse Brownies

Ingredients

1 box Betty Crocker® fudge brownie mix
3 oz. white baking chocolate

1/3 cup whipping cream

1 cup Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy cream cheese frosting (from 16 oz container)

1/4 cup chopped well drained maraschino cherries

1 drop red food color

1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1/4 cup butter or margarine

1 oz. white baking chocolate



1/4 teaspoon vegetable oil



Directions        

                                                                                       

1 Heat oven to 350°F (or 325°F for dark or non stick pan).


Grease or spray bottom of 13x9-inch pan.


Mix brownies as directed on box using water, oil and eggs.

 2 In medium microwaveable bowl, microwave 3 oz. white baking chocolate and 1/3 cup whipping cream uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring once, until chocolate is melted. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until slightly thickened.


3 Stir frosting and maraschino cherries into chocolate mixture until well blended. Spread evenly over cooled brownies.
