DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F Line and 8" square baking pan with foil, allowing the edges to hang an inch or 2 over two sides of the pan. Coat pan and foil with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together the next four ingredients. Set aside.
  • Combine cherries, 1/4 cup of sugar, water and the almond extract in a small, heavy saucepan over medium heat. Cover and simmer until the cherries soften and juices form, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Cool slightly. Puree cherry mixture in a blender until smooth. Set aside.
  • Place 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and the butter in a large metal bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water and stir just until melted. Whisk 3/4 cup of cherry sauce, remaining 3/4 cup sugar, eggs, and egg whites into chocolate mixture to blend well. Whisk in flour mixture. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan.
  • Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Bake until a toothpick inserted into center comes out with moist crumbs attached, about 30 minutes. Transfer pan to a rack anc cool completely. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover brownies and store at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate cherry sauce).
  • Using the two overhanging foil edges, carefully lift brownies out of pan. Cut into 12 pieces. Before serving, drizzle cherry sauce on top of each brownie, then add a dollop of whipped cream. Serve immediately.
