Now, you MUST notice that I 'glommed onto' this recipe from another location. Notice the post title is underlined? That's your link to chocolate heaven! Click on the post title and you will access the recipe for this chocolate treat. Those girls at BigGirls,SmallKitchen know their stuff! There is NO WAY I can ever take credit for this easy and completely orgasmic snacking experience. Yes, I said, orgasmic.
The only changes made to this recipe were strictly personal... I love dark chocolate and can rationalize eating it far easier than milk chocolate, so I used dark bittersweet chocolate chips. I also cut the amount of nuts by half... and increased the cherries by 1/4 cup. I also cut the cherries in half, and chopped up the nuts into smaller pieces, figuring that the sugary goop would increase their size. That's it for adaptations... it's pretty to look at and so wonderfully sensual to have melting in your mouth! Go for it! Happy Valentine's Day!
Incidentally, the survey says ... go for the flowers if you're trying to impress your Valentine, but having a batch of chocolate can't hurt!
