      I have been wanting to make these for some time now and have finally gotten around to it. I wish I hadn't waited so long! I find that brownies usually only need frosting when they aren't that great alone - and since that was not the case here, I did not make the frosting. I used half regular cocoa and half Hershey's special dark cocoa. I also left out the nuts as I'm not a big fan. The next time I come across cranberries at the store (I wish they were available all year round!) I will be making these again - and will buy more cranberries to freeze so I can make these all year round. Thanks for the recipe Mike!

      Wow! Amazing is all I can say. Even if you don't like cranberries, you'll like these because they almost taste like chocolate covered tart cherries! I had leftover cranberries to use from Thanksgiving and these got rave reviews. I think the almond extract really changed the flavor, and the frosting just melted in your mouth. I do think they are better cold so they stay together better. Thanks for a great recipe!

      What could be finer than cranberries & chocolate [unless, of course, it were raisins & chocolate, but that's another recipe]! This was such a great way to combine the two, & including cranberry juice in the icing was the 'icing on the cake' so to speak! Will definitely be making this again & again!
