No Bake Cherry Chocolate Brownie Bites

No Bake Cherry Chocolate Brownie Bites

Well, after another holiday season of far too much sugar and nonexistent workout habits, I’m ready to start this new year off with simpler, healthier eating in mind. To that end, I know that my sweet tooth tends to get cranky if ignored too long, and I find that my willpower alone puts up a rather pathetic fight. Instead, I know I absolutely must keep healthier (but still delicious) treats on hand to satisfy those dessert cravings.
