Chocolate Cherry Bars

Welcome to Christmas In July!!!!!!!

Last year my husband was down and I didn't do the daily posting in July and this year I am having issues posting pictures so.......

I will try to post a recipe daily and a tidbit or something on Christmas!

I am always looking for new items for our Christmas trays we do and thought this sounded pretty good--will have to try it before December.

Chocolate Cherry Bars

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
12 oz. pkg. milk chocolate chips
10 oz. jar maraschino cherries, drained and chopped

Spread melted butter evenly in a 9X13 baking pan, Stir in graham cracker crumbs pressing down to form a crust.  Pour  condensed milk over top, sprinkle with chocolate chips and chopped cherries.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.  Cool completely then slice into bars.  Makes about 2 dozen.

I think some pecans or your choice might be good on the top also.

That sounds delicious! Can you tell us more about your Christmas trays? Are they gifts for others or just goodies you have in the kitchen on a decorative tray during the holiday season? Teigan is so adorable in your cover photo.

This recipe sounds great. Let us know how it actually turns out. Would love to see a picture if you can manage it. I know you said you were having trouble.

I'm looking forward to your CIJ posts! Thanks for doing this. I know it is time-consuming.
