From Lakeshore Winery
The cherry flavor in these brownies makes them especially good with Lakeshore Pinot Noir.
4 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
¾ cup butter or margarine
1¾ cups sugar
¼ cup cherry-flavored Jell-O mix (½ package)
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons dry red wine
1 cup all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a 13-by-9 inch baking pan with non-stick spray.
Break chocolate into pieces along with butter in a microwave-safe bowl large enough to hold all ingredients. Microwave on high for about 2 minutes, until chocolate is melted. Stir until smooth. Measure Jell-O into a 2-cup measuring cup and fill to the 2-cup mark with sugar. Add the sugar and Jell-O to the chocolate mixture; stir until well blended. Add eggs, vanilla, wine; stir again. Stir in flour. Spread evenly in the prepared pan.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool and cut into squares.
