German Chocolate Cherry Brownies - Cooking with Alicia & Annie Contest

Tonight's dessert had all of my favorites in it--chocolate, cherries, and coconut pecan frosting. German Chocolate Cherry Brownies are from Annie's Recipes.

The brownies turned out to be more of a cake. It was very rich, almost too rich to eat in the size of a piece of cake. Also, because it is so moist, it's very hard to cut a piece of it and serve it without it falling apart. In my opinion, this recipe would be much better suited for cupcakes. I would top them with a chocolate ganache instead of the melted chocolate chips. That would be the perfect size for this rather strange -but oh so good!-combination.

German Chocolate Cherry Brownies
1 pkg. German chocolate cake mix
1 can coconut - pecan frosting
1 can cherry pie filling
1 egg
4 tbsp. butter or oleo

Put all ingredients into medium size bowl. Mix well with wooden spoon, until evenly mixed. Pour into 9 x 13 inch pan and spread evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from oven and pour 1 cup chocolate chips on top. Let stand for 5 minutes. Then spread chocolate chips evenly over brownies. Let cool completely before cutting.
