White Chocolate Cherry Diamond Bars

White Chocolate Cherry Diamond Bars

I know I usually write about healthy and wellness living, considering I am extremely passionate about what I do and what I write about on a daily basis. BUT, with the spirit of Christmas in the air and the holidays less than two weeks around the corner, a dessert recipe is needed, no, it’s MANDATORY!

I have many, many, many favourite recipes to make around Christmas but I decided to share one that I haven’t made in a couple of years. This recipe pretty much appeals to anyone who likes chocolate, cherries, and a luscious graham cracker-buttery crust. Need I convince you more that you need to make this recipe?
