If you love chocolate then you are going to absolutely love this divine creation. If you wanted to make her look even more decadent (is that even possible)? you could sprinkle some edible gold glitter on top too. If you love cherries then you can add more to the top or you could even blend and add to the filling. So many great options and she will look amazing on your table at this time of year.
Christmas can be both indulgent and healthy……………..
