One of my family’s favorite desserts are candy bars.  My favorite is our Chocolate Peanut Butter Candy Bar.  I love these because not only are they super simple to make but I cut them into bite sized pieces and they are the perfect popable dessert.  The only problem…my son does not like peanuts or peanut butter.  He does however love chocolate so I whipped up this delicious chocolate cherry inspired candy bar.  They were a big hit and are now my new favorite candy bar!




  1. Line an 8 x 8 glass dish with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Add all the ingredients to a food processor or powerful blender.
  3. Process the mixture for 3-5 minutes.  You should have a thick, mostly smooth dough.
  4. Transfer the mixture to your prepared glass dish and using a spatula gently press down on the mixture to form an even layer.
  5. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes.  Remove and cut into 1 1/2 by 4 inch sized candy bars.
  6. Wrap each candy bar in plastic wrap and store in the fridge until ready to eat.

I actually like to cut these bars up into smaller pieces that I can pop into my mouth after a meal.  I cut each bar up into 6 equal pieces and end up with 60 popable treats.
