The Story Behind the Chocolate Cherry Brownies

This is hands down one of the most requested recipes from my children. I totally get it, though. These chocolate cherry brownies were one of my most requested treats growing up too. However, I didn’t call them chocolate cherry brownies.

In fact, my mom dubbed this recipe Cherry Cha-Cha. Why she called it that, I don’t know. Maybe it got its fun name because it’s so good you want to do the cha-cha after one bite.

Not only is this requested frequently from my own children, but it’s easy and decadent enough to serve for special occasions.

In fact, a few years ago I was put in charge of providing dessert my church Christmas party. I knew I needed something that was quick, easy, and worthy of a Christmas dinner. I knew immediately that I needed to make cherry cha-cha. Even though I may have over estimated how much I needed, it was a true hit!
