Cherry Bomb Bon Bons

I got some really exciting news this week, ( I’ll be able to tell you more next week), let’s just say that I needed to have a celebration!

Aren’t these things cute? They are really easy to make and my husband just gobbles them up! We all know what a sweet tooth he has. He says they remind him of the chocolate cherry cordials he used to get with his treat money when he was a kid.

I thought they fit in well with the olympics starting, the only problem with them is that they are the kind of thing that you can’t just eat one. They also seem to have their own little voices that keep saying: Come and get me!

There is no real recipe, I use a cake mix and stemmed cherries. Just mix up the chocolate cake mix according to package directions, line a mini muffin tin with liners or spray with Baker’s Joy. Then fill them about 1/2 way, drop a cherry in and bake until done.

You can cover them with chocolate if you like but they are just as good plain. These little guys are really fun to make with your kids. Great memories are made in the kitchen, so get in there and start cookin'!
