1 (19.5-ounce) box traditional fudge brownie mix

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup water

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels

1 envelope unflavored gelatin

1/4 cup cold water

1/3 cup boiling water

2 cups heavy whipping cream

2/3 cup sugar

1/2 cup chopped maraschino cherries

3 teaspoons maraschino cherry juice


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine brownie mix, oil, water, eggs, and vanilla. Beat with a wooden spoon for 2 minutes. Stir in chocolate morsels. Pour batter into prepared pan as directed on the box. Bake 18 minutes; cool completely. Cut brownies using a 1 1/2-inch round cutter. Place on a serving tray; set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, soften gelatin in 1/4 cup cold water, let stand 2 minutes. Add 1/3 cup boiling water, stirring until gelatin dissolves.
  4. In a medium bowl, beat whipping cream with an electric mixer until foamy; gradually add sugar, beating until soft peaks form. Gently stir in gelatin mixture, cherries, and juice. Cover and chill 2 hours.
  5. To serve, pipe or spoon cherry mousse onto prepared brownies.
