Instructions
  1. 1 Heat oven to 325°F. Grease bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with shortening or cooking spray. Drain maraschino cherries, reserving juice for drizzle; set juice aside. Finely chop cherries; pat dry with paper towel.
  2. 2 In large bowl, beat 1 cup powdered sugar and 1 cup butter with electric mixer on medium speed until well mixed. Beat in vanilla and eggs. On low speed, beat in flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips and the cherries. Spread in pan.
  3. 3 Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until top is golden brown. Immediately sprinkle with 1 cup chocolate chips. Let stand 5 minutes or until chocolate in softened. Spread chocolate evenly over crust.
  4. 4 In small bowl, mix 1 cup powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons butter and 2 to 3 tablespoons reserved cherry juice until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over chocolate. Cool completely, about 45 minutes. For bars, cut into 8 rows by 4 rows.
Notes
  1. Fill a resealable plastic bag with the cherry drizzle, and cut off a tiny bottom corner of the bag to easily drizzle over the chocolate.
  2. Make sure you dry the cherries with a paper towel to eliminate excess moisture.
