Mmm chocolate, mmm cherry, mmm brownies. Chocolate and cherry brownies? Need I say more? Well, I will!
I made this recipe last month for my mum’s birthday cake. It was a bit of a panic to make after school but this recipe can be whipped up in less than an hour including heating the oven and cooling.

Make a water icing. I never weigh this, just judge by eye and consistency!
Cut into 9 pieces and enjoy!
