I absolutely loved this recipe. I was surprised how easy it was to make as well. I was short of time so I did chill then cut into squares rather than making logs. To do this it required a little longer to chill before cutting. Thanks for a keeper!
Really, really enjoyed making these logs, what with the combo of cherries & chocolate! My other half conned me out of some to take & share at work, but the rest were for right here, to pacify the cravings of THIS chocoholic! Definitely something I plan to make again & the recipe is now in my holiday gift ideas cookbook! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
