Expert Tips

The name of these brownies stems from the same flavors found in an exquisite chocolate-cherry torte, which was embellished with cherry liqueur (Kirsch) and whipped cream, that originated in Germany's Black Forest region.

Sprinkling the dessert wth cocoa makes it special. Put the cocoa in a tea strainer and lightly shake it over the dessert.
