This is the other recipe that I took to our Valentine-making gathering last week. Little mouthfuls of goodness . . .
Chocolate-Covered Cherry Cups
20 oz. pkg. of brownie mix
16 oz. jar of maraschino cherries, halved - drain juice and reserve
1 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 C. sweetened condensed milk
Prepare brownie mix according to package directions, substituting cherry juice for water called for in directions. Place paper liners in mini muffin cups; fill about half full of brownie batter. Press a cherry half into each cup. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Remove baked cups in liners from muffin cups; let cool. Combine chips and milk in small saucepan; stir over low heat until melted. Remove from heat and stir in the amount of cherry juice need for frosting consistency. Place a dollop of warm frosting on each cherry cup. Makes about 4 dozen.
