Wow, wow, wow...this was so good. No one could tell it was from a box...the flavour, the texture, the taste and it looks so pretty. We really enjoyed this dessert. The sour cream and cool whip add a new dimension to this lovey chocolatey cherry treat. I will be making this again and again, thanks so much for sharing.
