    Rita1's Note:

    My niece gave me this recipe. I have no idea as to where it originated. I made these bars today for the first time and took them to a family gathering and brought home an empty pan. The bars are chocked full of chocolate chips and maraschino cherries and are very moist. I would suggest using 1/2 of the chips the recipe calls for and maybe adding more cherries. They are Mmm Mmm good! I forgot to ice my party bars but they were plenty rich without the frosting.

      I made these as my Christmas gifts this year and they were wonderful! I doubled the recipe, I used butter rather than shortening and doubled the choc chips (half white and half milk). I got rave reviews and will make this again. It looked wonderfully festive on green plates with the red cherries and choc chips. Thanks for posting!

      These are easy and tasty bars to prepare, especially appealing, of course, to those who love the combination of cherry and chocolate. It has a cake-like texture, as well. I wasn't sure if I should use whole maraschino cherries, so I "squished" them a bit with a fork to generate more pieces and to release some of the juices. Thanks for sharing!

      These are a very moist and delicious bar cookie. Extremely easy to make and the cherries keep them very chewy & moist. I didn't frost them either as they were already very sweet. These would be good on a Christmas party tray. Thanks for sharing!
