I hesitantly made this recipe after seeing it in Better Homes and Garden. It actually was a HUGE hit with my co-workers and family - they said it's their new favorite! I used a bag of frozen cherries, and did not even bother to thaw them out - the cherry/chocolate combo is awesome. I used bittersweet chocolate chips for the chocolate portion.
