Chewy Cherry Bars (lower calorie version)


This recipe, while baking made the house smell like the holidays, so I have this on radar for work parties and our family holiday’s too!   This is an adaptation of the weight watchers cake and cola sweets.  This was easy to make and about 175 on the calories.   It was pretty to look at too!

Serves 12


1 Box white cake mix

1 jar of maraschino cherries

1/2 cup dried cranberries, cherry infused

1/2 c chopped walnuts



Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9 x 13 cake pan with cooking spray.

Mix together thoroughly until all ingredients are mixed well.  The batter is rather thick and pink in color.   Bake for about 30 minutes.    Cool completely before cutting so it won’t tear up.  Enjoy !
