Why are people obsessed with “a cherry on top?” Seems strange to me since I always hated cherries. But now I know what it means! After trying this recipe, I see that cherries do not have to be the star of the show, but just that finishing touch that adds the perfect amount of flavor and sweetness. You know what is the only other acceptable way I will eat a cherry? Covered in chocolate. Yeah, that is the best way to enjoy it.
