Melt the chocolate and butter in the pan over a low heat.
Take the pan off the heat add the vanilla and sugar, mix together and let it cool down a little.
gradually add the eggs bit by bit, mix by stirring quickly then the ground almonds gradually to make sure tis mixed properly.
then add all the chocolate chips, (and cherries if you're having them) and mix them well.

This should leave them cooked on the top and cooked but squishy in the middle.
Lift the greaseproof paper and stick the brownie onto the side to cool....
after about 15 minutes (or 10 if u can't wait) pull down the edges of the paper and use a large sharpe knife and cut into either mini squares or larger squares.
