Chocolate Stacks

I needed something--fast. Scout Sunday Mass was looming like my fortieth birthday on the horizon. I had a bag of chocolate chips, dried cherries, raisins and butter.

1/2 stick of butter
1 bag milk chocolate chips
1 bag dried cherries
1 cup raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Melt the butter over medium heat in pot. Add chocolate chips and stir together until melted. Add vanilla and stir together. Remove from heat and stir in raisins and cherries. Add nuts if you want.

Drop by tablespoon onto wax paper and cool in fridge.

This sounds yummy!!! I love dried cherries but rarely get a chance to use them in my baking. Don't have any chocolate at hand currently, but I'd like to try this out sometime soon.

(And don't worry too much about that 40th bday... its just a number!)
