These chocolate cherry bars combine two delicious dessert flavors to become an extra special treat.
Heat oven to 350°F.

Combine all filling ingredients in same bowl. Spread filling over hot, partially baked crust; sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Continue baking 27-32 minutes or until lightly browned.
Melt chocolate chips and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring often, 2-3 minutes or until smooth. Drizzle over bars. Cool completely; cut into bars.

Super easy and tasty! I followed the recipe but the cherry pie filling was not enough to cover the baked crust. I'll use to cans next time ;-)
I love this recipe! I also make it with blueberries and use white almond bark for the drizzle! v
I've made this many times with blueberry pie filling and added chopped pecans to the crumb mixture. I forgot to put the chocolate drizzle on top the second time I made it and have made it that way ever since. Not too sweet. Everyone wants the recipe.
This was pretty good. Substituted half of the sugar with brown sugar which gave a shortbread taste. Yummy.
Excellent recipe! I absolutely love it and have had many requests for it. I've been making it at Christmas for the past 3 years and will continue to do so.
This was fabulously tasty. I love the hint of almond in the cherry filling. I have made it several times and keep coming back to it!
Gave this recipe to several others by request. Love It!
My friend gave me a piece of this. It was awesome. She actually used 2 cans of cherry pie filling.
THIS IS A WONDERFULLY DIFFERENT RECIPE. I MADE IT FOR A FAMILY GATHERING AND GOT RAVE REVIEWS FOR IT. I WOULD NOT CHANGE A THING ABOUT THIS RECIPE. IT'S VERY EASY TO MAKE, BUT TASTES LIKE YOU SPENT A LOT OF TIME MAKING IT. IT WOULD BE A GREAT HOLIDAY RECIPE.
