Original recipe yields 25 squares

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8 inch square baking pan. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, white sugar, and cocoa powder. Cut in butter until the texture is mealy. Pat into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  2. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips. Cook, stirring frequently until chips are melted and the mixture is smooth. Pour over the baked crust.
  3. Return to the oven, and bake for 15 minutes. Remove, and cool in the pan over a wire rack.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix together the confectioners' sugar, butter, and cherry juice. Spread over the cooled filling in the pan. Melt semisweet chocolate in a small glass dish in the microwave, or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth. Place in a plastic bag or piping bag, cut the tip to 1/8 inch, and drizzle the chocolate over the bars in a back and forth motion to make stripes. Cool completely before cutting into squares.

Creamy, fudgey, rich and sinfully good. Be forewarned, you'll think you're skimping when you cut these into itty bitty bars, but a little of this goes a long way! I made these just as the recipe directed, but found I only needed 2-1/2 T. of the cherry juice in the frosting to get the consistency I wanted. I chilled the baked bars briefly before cutting them, just long enough for them to set and be somewhat firm. So, so pretty, and perfect for Valentine's Day! Too few cooks have made these--I hope you'll give these a try!

naples34102, you have - once again - steered me in the right direction. Holy Hannah, these are incredible! Followed exactly, except dropped about 2 tsp cherry juice into the filling.

These fudgy bites will definitely satisfy a sweet tooth. And they are so pretty! Be sure to cut them in small squares because they are beyond rich. I especially like the cherry icing. Make sure the pan of bars is totally cool before you spread the icing or you'll melt it. I think these taste best when stored in the refrigerator and served chilled. They are also much easier to cut when cold.
