If you love the classic flavor combination of rich chocolate and sweet cherries, you’ll love these brownies’ secret ingredient: cherry cola. This effervescent addition gives these brownies a boost of cherry flavor that’s only enhanced by chopped maraschino cherries stirred into the batter and added on top. And to make sure there’s no shortage of chocolate, we added chips to the batter and drizzles on top! MORE+ LESS-
