    Chocolate Cherry Bars were always a part of Christmas growing up in our family, and it's been a while since I've made them. This recipe was spot on and the frosting was perfect and not too sweet. Could hardly wait for them to cool down enough to eat a piece! This is my go to recipe!

    I have this exact same recipe, and have made it many times. People always rave, and I often get asked the recipe. It's perfect if you need to take a dessert somewhere, as it's so easy to throw together. One of my husbands favorite's!!

    Because of the name Chocolate Cherry "Bars", I assumed this would be more like a brownie. Actually, it is a cake. I made it for a Valentine's Day Luncheon and it is super--especially love the frosting, which is a yummy chocolate glaze. This comes together in a snap and uses common ingredients. I plan to keep a devil's food cake mix and can of cherries on hand from now on so I can throw one of these together quickly if I need to!
