This delicious post is part of a blog tour for a new cookbook called The Flying Brownie by Shirley Fan. The book contains 100 recipes that are “shipment friendly” and is the only book devoted to recipes that are meant to be mailed. That means if you love sending sweet treats to friends far and wide or your son or daughter off at college, than this book is definitely for you. There are recipes of all shapes and sizes from Apricot-Almond Granola Bars to Butterscotch Blondies and everything in between. Don’t get me wrong, this book would be great even if you plan on keeping the goodies all to yourself.
It was tough to land on one specific recipe, but when I flipped to these Chocolate Cherry Brownies, I knew it was on. They are soft, chewy and a little crunchy on the edges. If you ask me that’s the trifecta of brownie deliciousness. The dried cherries add a welcome chewy surprise to the rich brownies as well.
From the book:
I love the flavors of chocolate and cherries, so I put them together in this rich and decadent brownie, which holds up very well for long and bumpy trips and will keep up to 2 weeks.
To help Shirley celebrate her book, I am giving away a copy. See below the recipe for how to enter.
The Fine Print: Harvard Common Press asked if I’d like to participate in this virtual book tour for Shirley Fan. This post is not sponsored and all opinions are my own. I was provided a book for review and Harvard Common Press will ship a copy of this book to the winner of my giveaway.
