Chocolate Cherry Lush
Chocolate cherry lush - the dessert that will make you eyes pop and your taste buds crave for more. Conjured up by Trish at Mom on Timeout, this perfect combination of chocolate and cherry will quickly become one of your favorite desserts.
Mom on Timeout was started in 2011, and over the years it has amassed some of the most creative and mouth-watering recipes I've seen. She has delicious recipes for all meals, and my personal favorite, dessert. There are also crafts, DIY, and even a teacher appreciation section on her website, where you learn how to put together the best gift basket for your children's teacher. And accompanying all of this are striking photographs that Trish takes herself. The picture of this chocolate cherry lush is enough to make me want to make one right now.
Fortunately this recipe is simple and fast to make. Simply make the foundational crust, then layer it with cherry pie filling, creamy layer with cream cheese and more, chocolate pudding, and finish it off with a healthy layer of Cool Whip. And go crazy with whatever garnish you are desiring. Then chill and serve.
This recipe is so simple to make and elegant in its design, that it also encourages you to experiment to your liking. For example, for the fourth pudding layer, you can use other flavors other than just chocolate, for example vanilla. Trish also recommends fat-free, sugar-free ingredients and lite Cool Whip, and I think this is a fantastic idea. Since no one can resist this recipe, you will less guilty when you devour the whole treat (although with 36 suggested servings, that would be a colossal task). Don't forget you can always refrigerate this dessert so you can enjoy it whenever this craving returns. For the complete recipe and many others, head over to Mom on Timeout website.
