Black Forest Brownies

These brownies are so chocolate-y good! We made them for our friend, Eric, who loves chocolate!

serves 18 (4 points)

1 box Betty Crocker low-fat fudge brownie mix ( for a 13 x 9 pan size)
1 egg
1 T. canola oil
1/2 c. water
1 c. no sugar added cherry pie filling

3 T. light stick butter
1-1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 T. baking cocoa
pinch of salt
1/4 c. cold coffee

Whisk together brownie mix, egg, oil and water until well mixed. Stir in cherry pie filling. Transfer to a 13 x 9 pan coated with cooking spray and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Cool completely.
For frosting, beat ingredients until well blended. Spread over cooled brownies.

  3. This sounds great! I can't wait to try it!

  4. found your blog through a link on skinnytaste! Bookmarked it...always good to have lots of ideas for meals and treats when on WW! thanks!

  5. Okay, these are seriously delicious!!! My frosting didn't harden up, it's very runny.. any idea what I did wrong? I don't care though, it's SO SO YUMMY!!!!!! I'm making several of your recipes this week for my husband & I. If they are all this good, I'm going to be in Weight Watchers heaven!! Thank you for posting this.. I'm definitely going to use this as my birthday cake!!!!

  6. Kristen,
    I am sorry your frosting did not turn out well. It could be anything from weather to elevation where you live. I would say, add the coffee only as needed next time. You may just start with a tablespoon or two. Also make sure your butter is slightly softened, but not melted.
    I am glad you liked the brownies. You will have to let me know what else you try and if you like it.

  7. I zapped the butter in the microwave, and it was partially melted.. I was afraid that could be the reason. That's okay - I popped them in the frig so that the icing would harden some. Seriously though, they are SO delicious. I'm having to refrain from going to get another!!


I love hearing from people who visit my blog! Let me know that you stopped by and let me know if you try a recipe!
