Gooey Brownies + Whipped Cherry Buttercream are just one of my favorite brownie combos!
Just stopping by to say Happy Valentine’s Day!
The recipe for the brownies can be found here.The buttercream recipe is below as a hand dandy printable.
Cherries and chocolate are a classic combo. We are just hinting at the cherry flavor here in the icing which is the way that I like it! This is still one of my favorite basic brownie recipes. I feel a little bad about the amount of butter in this one so, I may be testing a new recipe soon:) I will be sure to post if its a keeper!
I hope that everyone has a extra special love day!
Buttercream with just a hint of cherry flavor.
- 3 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1 cup butter softened

Cream butter and sugar with whisk attachment on stand mixer. Whisk for about 3-5 mins.
Add vanilla and then the cherry juice 1 tbsp at a time until desired consistency is reached. Whisk for another 3-5 mins. Add more juice if icing is too thick.
