Run to the supermarket and buy some sweet cherries. Now. You need this homemade chocolate cherry sauce in your life.
Cherries are $1.99/lb. at our ALDI and another area supermarket right now. This is the price where I normally would be scooping them up to freeze for the rest of the year but alas, temp housing means that isn’t very feasible.
I’ll be crying in the winter when I don’t have any cherries for chocolate cherry sauce, dark chocolate cherry bread, homemade cherry limeade, or cherry jam. That means I need to enjoy extra cherries right now, and I am.
Eat one, chop one. Eat one, chop one. Works for me. You’ll need approximately 2 handfuls for this recipe and another handful for eating.
