From The Cereal Lover's Cookbook, this candy is really simple to make and tastes better than chocolate-covered cherries. The cooking time is actually chilling time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with foil, making sure the foil is tucked into the corners and that there is at least 1-inch overhanging the top of the pan on all sides.
  2. Melt the chocolate chips and butter, whisking occasionally until smooth.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the cereal and cherries.
  4. Spread the chocolate mixture across the bottom of the baking pan in an even layer with a spatula (it doesn't have to be perfect).
  5. Refrigerate until hardened, about 1 hour.
  6. Break into pieces.
  7. Will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

I made this with cocoa puffs by accident and it was a huge hit in my house. I usually like to make things that are "prettier" but this wasn't around long enough to look at!

I made this recipe with good quality dark chocolate (72%) and brought it to a church potluck. It was a huge hit! I doubled the recipe. Quick & easy.
