Cherry and Chocolate Fudge Bars

Five layers of absolute bliss - crumb, fudge, cherries, more crumb, and chocolate. All baked in one pan, cut, cooled, and enjoyed with cold glass of milk!  | @littlebroken

Hope you guys had a fun and safe 4th of July yesterday! We ate too much, stayed out too late, and today paid the price. When you have a little two month old at home there’s no way around it.
