Tart cranberries and sweet chocolate are a match made in holiday heaven, especially when paired in this delicious cranberry brownie recipe. These decadent treats are a must-make dessert recipe for your holiday table!

If you love nuts, stir in about a 1/2 cup of chopped nuts with the cranberries. Walnuts and pecans would be delish. For even more cranberry flavor, top the brownies with cooked cranberries. Simply cook them in a little water and sugar then drain well, or try this easy cranberry sauce recipe. Mmm!
