I found this recipe in a magazine and have been planning to try it for a while now. This is supposed to be a good, heart-healthy snack, and I thought it would be nice for Jeffrey to have as a snack because he loves cherries so much. I finally made them today.
I didn't have any bittersweet chocolate chips, but I do have some Hershey's extra dark baking bars. I figured those would work just fine, since the chocolate must be melted. However, I did not know how many squares I would need, so I looked it up and found this handy list of chocolate substitutions. For each cup of chocolate chips, I need 6 squares of chocolate - so that's 1-1/2 of those baking bars.
