cherry chip & malted brownie

I wouldn't call them a brownie. But they are a very good snack cake especially around Washington's birthday when you want a cherry recipe.

Very Good!

I made these over the weekend for a BBQ we had for my husband's model railroad club. Very good and very moist. They were a hit. Will make again.
