Additional Information

Using a plastic knife when cutting the brownies helps prevent them from sticking to the knife.

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 which originated in Germany's Black Forest region.

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