There is absolutely nothing quite like a maraschino brownie. The red jewels of the cherry fit into the double chocolate batter just like your hand fits into a satin glove....

2 c semisweet chocolate chips
1 jar maraschino cherries (reserve the juice)
1 stick butter
1 c sugar
1 1/4 c flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla shop
3 eggs, beaten
1 12 oz. bag chocolate chunks or pieces
1 to 2 Tbsp. reserved maraschino juice
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
2 Tbsp. butter

Drain the cherries, saving the juice for the icing.
Coarsely chop the cherries and set aside.
Melt the chocolate chips and butter in large saucepan; remove from heat.
Stir in flour, vanilla, baking powder, eggs and salt.
Stir in chocolate chunks and chopped cherries.

Spread into a 9x13 baking pan and bake about 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool.

For icing, combine reserved cherry juice, icing sugar, and butter. Mix to form a glaze then drizzle over brownies decoratively.
