I've made these for many years, making them differently each time. They make a beautiful dessert treat for Christmas, served on a holiday platter and lightly sprinkled w/ powered sugar. I have stuck with this version because this is the one my daughter loves best. You bite into a chewy brownie, oozing caramel sauce, and taste the tang of the cherry sauce and you know you're in heaven!
