Off the Cuff - Chocolate Cherry Brownies with Almonds

I'm not sure why the mood strikes at all crazy hours for me to want to bake. But last night at about 1030p, I decided it was a grand ol' time to bake brownies! I didn't want just plain brownies (when do I ever do anything just plain ol'?!), but I didn't have all the ingredients to make the ones with the cream cheese swirl (my favorite). So, I opened some cabinets and the fridge and found some things to make cherry brownies! Since the checkered husband doesn't care for nuts, I made half with and half without sliced almonds. Hope you like!
