Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Brownies with Blackberry Merlot Jam

Luscious chocolate bombs of goodness filled with melted blackberry merlot jam. Bonus is these take less than 10 minutes to make and 20 minutes to bake.


Gather It

  • Ghirardelli dark chocolate brownie mix (also need one egg, water and vegetable oil)
  • 1/4 cup Aunt Becky’s Blackberry Merlot Jam

Make It

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Follow instructions on box for brownie mix
  • Fill muffin tin with 12 paper liners
  • Using measured scoop, fill paper liners 1/3 full of brownie mix
  • Add 1 tsp. jam
  • Divide remaining brownie mix into paper liners
  • Bake 20 minutes until brownies are done

Gobble It


Who are we kidding? Don’t wait for the brownies to cool! Use a butter knife to wedge a brownie out of the piping hot muffin tin. Try not to burn your finders as you delicately tear the paper off the brownie over a bowl. Since it’s warm, I guarantee the brownie will fall apart. Add a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream. Sneak to another room in your house to hide from your significant other/children/dog to gobble it down quickly and secretly.
