I FOUND CHERRY CHIPS!!!! they have been and are hard to find. However, I found them at my local wal mart store. and then i looked them up online and found them for sale on the company's website. the brand is log house. just google log house foods and it will direct you to the site. i looked for cherry chip for 4 years and could never find them so Im so excited that someone has brought them back so recipes like this one can be made right. 5 stars

I love this recipe by far the best out there. I have the same problem finding cherry chips so i used white choc chips and marchino cherrys chopped plus also added the juice. It still had a cherry taste. If u want more cherry flavor add cherry extract. 5 stars
