  • 1/3 cup boiling water
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 (19.5 oz) box fudgey brownie mix
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped, plus 3 teaspoons juice maraschino cherries


Preheat oven to 350 °F. Lightly grease a 15 by 10 by 1-inch jellyroll pan.

In a large bowl, combine brownie mix, oil, water, eggs and vanilla. Beat with a wooden spoon for 2 minutes. Stir in chocolate morsels. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 18 minutes; cool completely. Cut brownies using a 1 1/2-inch round cutter. Place on a serving tray; set aside.

In a small bowl, soften gelatin in 1/4-cup cold water, let stand 2 minutes. Add 1/3 cup boiling water, stirring until gelatin dissolves.

In a medium bowl, beat whipping cream with an electric mixer until foamy; gradually add sugar, beating until soft peaks form. Gently stir in gelatin mixture, cherries, and juice. Cover and chill 2 hours.

To serve, pipe or spoon cherry mousse onto prepared brownies.
