    1. In a large mixing bowl, beat together canola oil, sugar, eggs, corn syrup, vanilla and almond extract until well combined. Add flour, cocoa powder and baking powder and beat just to incorporate ingredients. Stir in cherries, chocolate chips, coconut and pecans.
    2. Transfer to a greased 9×9” (23×23 cm) baking dish. Bake at 350°F (180°C) for 25 – 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and edges of the brownies begin to come away from the sides of the pan. Do not overcook. Allow to cool completely in pan.
    3. When brownies are cool, cut into squares and transfer to a wire rack over a baking sheet. Melt white chocolate for approximately 1 minute on high in the microwave. Stir to finish melting the chocolate. Cut very small corner out of a plastic storage bag. Pour white chocolate into the bag and drizzle over each bar.

    NOTE: Brownies can also be cut into shapes with cookie cutters
