    This was so easy to make. seriously a bark from the microwave??? This was such a treat for the whole family and the combination of the salty pistachios, the tartness of the cherries and the sweetness of the chocolate was amazing. If someone else had made this for me, I would never believe a serving of this was as big and not bad for me. It was so good!
