Well... not to be rude, but...

... maybe I made a mistake somewhere but these brownies were dry enough to choke a camel.
To be fair they were very good crumbled over ice cream as a topping. They didn't taste BAD, they were just VERY dry and as a result, very unpalatable by themselves.
I tried them a second time with an entirely different brownie recipe and they were EXCELLENT. I couldn't find dried cherries so I used cherry flavoured "Craisins", which are dried cranberries. Word of warning - don't be tempted to drink the merlot after it's been drained from the fruit, it's NASTY, so use a merlot that you like enough to drink the rest of, but aren't so in love with that you hate to dump it down the sink after it's finished lending its loveliness to the fruit...
But the brownies were excellent with my modified version. (I used a "One Bowl" version found inside an unsweetened baking squares box.)
