Even though everyone knows that the George Washington and the cherry tree story is simply an urban legend, most still serve something with cherries on President’s Day. This delicious 4-Ingredient Cherry Chocolate Crisp is perfect, since it’s quick, easy, and good – especially served warm with ice cream. It’s also a great dessert to serve around the Christmas holidays, since it’s red, and also for Valentine’s Day – chocolate and cherries. No one will guess that there are so few ingredients, or that hands-on time is less than 10 minutes. It’s truly amazing that four ingredients can be transformed quickly into a warm, flavorful fruit dessert with a crispy topping and gooey chocolate!
