Blogmas: Cherry and Chocolate Brownies

I love to bake - even more so around Christmas time. I like to use Christmas as an excuse to eat my body weight in chocolate....'cause Christmas calories don't count, right? I had the pleasure of meeting some people from Opies at the Bloggers Festival earlier in the year and they were kind enough to send me some of their products to do some Christmas baking with. Opies has been a brand that I have always seen in my Mum's baking cupboards, so I knew I was in good hands. I had a look on the Opies website and found their recipe for Cherry and Chocolate Brownies, to me this sounded like heaven.
180g plain four
1/2 tsp baking powder 
1/2 tsp salt
240g plain chocolate
1 jar of Opies cherries soaked n kirsch
120g butter
4 eggs
450g caster sugar
The method for this recipe was so simple, you can find this here on the Opies website. Perfect for even the most inexperienced bakers. I love brownies all year round, but the addition of alcohol soaked cherries makes this classic brownie recipe perfect for the festive season. It has to be said, with 450g of sugar, these are not the world's healthiest brownies, but if you can't treat yourself at Christmas when can you!
Voila! After very little effort you have brownies to die for. I cannot stand this word, but they were so moist. Probably the nicest brownies I have ever made. I shared these with family, friends and work colleagues and they were all very impressed. So whatever the occasion is for you this Christmas, these brownies will be a perfect addition. 

What are some of your favourite things to bake at Christmas time?
Love, Kate xx
