Looking for a quick after school snack to show your little Valentines you love them? This five ingredient treat is so good and tastes like a chocolate covered cherry! Also, I love to use the juice from maraschino cherries for a great flavor to many desserts. Next time you make a vanilla cake, add some of the juice for a delicious cherry flavor.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
