myFresha-licious Fudgy Black Forest Rum Chocolate Brownies

You think Black Forest are for cakes only?  Think again :-) I had already baked my own version of Black Forest Brownies  and guess what, my husband liked the blended flavor and the after effect of the of the rum and cherries and the deep rich flavor of the chocolate.  The texture is also awesome.  Very fudgy and gooey that the brownie literally sticks to your teeth as you bite and chew on it.

My Black Forest Brownies is a delicious combination of rich chocolaty and fudgy brownies and candied cherries soaked in rum.  I was initially planning of topping it with whipping cream and decorating it with cherries but I changed my mind since this is just an experiment.  Now that I have a good black forest brownie base recipe, I can experiment on the toppings later on.  

If you are fond of liquor chocolates, you'll definitely love this.  It's delicious and it gets even better when it stays in the refrigerator for a some days
