I’ve never made cherry brownies because I never have cherries left. Cherries and chocolate are a great combination!

Yuuuum! We bought a bunch of fruit over the weekend: cherries, nectarines, peaches, plums and canteloupe. It finally feels like summer!! Awesome recipe and tips, Jen! Might need to give this a try…

Great use of summer fruit! I now have a huge cherry craving!

I LOVE adding fruit to desserts too – because it allows me to cut the added fat and sugar down so much! These look delish!

Great tip! Thanks!

Huge scoreon the bag of cherries! Hope you love the brownies!

Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table June 20, 2011 at 9:15 am

I just bought a bag of cherries! They are so flavorful right now. I was just copping out of making a cherry dessert because I don’t have a cherry pitter, but you have encouraged me to use the old fashioned method. :)

Jen @ Keepitsimplefoods June 20, 2011 at 11:05 am

No cherry pitter needed! ;) Go for it!

Erin @ Naturally Addicted June 20, 2011 at 8:59 am

I have been eating cherries like it’s my job since they came in season! I love them… I can only imagine how these brownies would taste. I need to get into the kitchen asap and whip some of these babies up!
