I recently went to my local Walmart and stocked up on Pillsbury Brownie Mixes and Frostings. I love having these products in your pantry because they are inexpensive and great time savers. It also simplifies cooking with my kids. You can even go to this link to get a coupon to save even more money on your purchase.
With Valentine’s coming up, I was asked by The J.M Smucker Company to create some unique tips for using their products and I wanted to share with you what I came up with. I thought it would be fun to make a sweet treat for my husband. Plus, I wanted to get my daughter involved on making something she could give her dad.
Baking is a great way to spend time with family.
Baking is a great way to spend time with family. Not only is it a great way to teach them skills for when they are on their own, but it creates special moments and memories. Some of my favorite memories while growing up were made in the kitchen.
So my husband loves brownies but he also loves cherry cordials, so I decided to create something that would combine those two things together and these easy cherry chocolate brownies is what was the end result.
It’s just a fun to mix up a moment from the usual brownie. The only extra things you need are some chocolate chips and a can of cherry pie filling. My daughter and I had fun making them in the kitchen and my husband loved his early Valentine’s treat.
The cherry pie filling does change the texture of the brownie to be a little more on the cakey side, but they are still thick and fudgy.
