  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a 9 by 13-inch pan with foil or parchment paper, leaving a little to hang over the sides of pan.
  2. In a large microwave safe bowl, combine butter and chocolate. Melt in 10-second increments, whisking until completely smooth. Whisk in sugar, eggs (one at a time) and vanilla extract. Add cocoa powder, flour and salt to the bowl of wet ingredients. Fold mixture together with a spatula until just combined. Batter will be extra thick. Spread evenly into prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes or until brownies are set and a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Place on wire rack to completely cool while you prepare buttercream.
  4. Make the buttercream: In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, add pomegranate cherry juice and bring to a boil. Simmer until reduced to about 1⁄4 cup and let cool completely. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat butter on high speed until smooth. Gently add confectioners’ sugar, one cup at a time, followed by reduced pomegranate cherry juice and heavy cream. Mix until smooth and fluffy, adding more cream if it’s too thick and more confectioners’ if it’s too thin.
  5. To serve: Cut brownies into even squares. Frost each brownie with pom-cherry buttercream. Garnish with fresh cherries.
