These very cute chocolately treats are especially wonderful because they hold their shape. Be sure to chop the cherries into small pieces for a smoother look. For easy cutting, dip cutter into hot water between cuts.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"These are delicious, I made mine with dried cranberries and loved them but it is true, cutting these out was extremely painful for me. I only ended up making a few and just ate the rest of it in chunks. Great and simple idea, just really physically difficult."

"This recipe is wonderful, but there must be an easier way to do it than spreading it out and cutting it with bat -shaped cookie cutters. I am just going to drop spoon size cookies on a sheet of wax paper. I haven't thought of a way to get a bat shape out of it."
