Red wine and brownies are two of the best flavors ever… so it only makes sense to combine them in one dish! These Fudgy Red Wine Brownies are absolutely bursting with rich flavor, and the texture is sure to appeal to those who love a good fudgy brownie. The red wine flavor just adds extra nuance and richness to the brownies (they don’t taste strongly of wine, so don’t worry about it being overwhelming), while the chocolate chips and dried cherries add tons of sweet-and-tart flavor. This isn’t just one of our favorite red wine brownie recipes… it’s one of our favorite brownie recipes!

You can enjoy one of these brownies with a glass of the same red wine you used to make it. Or, you can enjoy with a sweeter red wine like Port. Interested in more wine and dessert pairings? Check out our article on 6 Wine Pairings for Dessert, and satisfy your wine and sweet tooth!
