Chocolate Cherry Squares Recipe

Do you like chocolate and cherry together?

If so then you would like chocolate cherry squares. I absolutely love the combination of cherry and chocolate. And sometimes you just do not have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. The longest part of this recipe is waiting for the chocolate squares to set in the fridge.

These no bake cookies are a great option for a sweet snack for guests or to take to a get together. The great thing about no bake cookie recipes is that there is a big variety of flavor and ingredient combinations. In fact as a substitute to the dried cherries you could use cherry candy flavoring if you do not desire the texture of the cherries to bite into.

No bake cookie recipes like this one also make great edible gift ideas. Toss a few in small cellophane bags and tie off with ribbons or decorative twist ties. There are many ways to package these chocolate cherry cookies. Choose a nice homemade greeting card or gift tag and write out a cute gift message and you have a simple but tasty treat to make someone smile.
