Chocolate Cherry Bread a gorgeous, delicious snack or morning starter. Made with fresh cherries, dark chocolate and a Rhodes Rolls bread loaf. An easy recipe that will taste like a buttery chocolate croissant.Chocolate Cherry Bread a gorgeous, delicious snack or morning starter. Made with fresh cherries, dark chocolate and a Rhodes Bread. So pretty much my favorite breakfast item, if I could have anything in the world would be a chocolate croissant. I love the rich buttery layers and then the dark chocolate center. I would always be so irritated ordering these at a bakery back East because they were so expensive. And here in Colorado, there are only a few places that the chocolate croissants are descent. I always used to hate paying $4-6 for ONE chocolate croissant that was until I made them from scratch at home. Now I realize why they are WORTH the money. Chocolate croissants take a ton of time and butter. Trust me friends, it is worth buying these. But if you have the time, there isn’t anything like homemade right? Check out my recipe if you have that sort of gumption.

 

But I am always looking for something that taste just like it but easier and simpler to make. Well here is the answer. And it wasn’t anything intentional. This recipe kinda just came together on a whim and the fact that cherries are in season. After first bite, I thought, “this taste so similar to a chocolate croissant”. Then my husband had a bite and said the same thing. Now I can state the obvious and tell you this bread doesn’t have rich butter layers dough, but you get what I mean that the taste is similar. And you know what this recipe is so much easier and cheaper than buying a ½ dozen of chocolate croissant that this will be my new to go to brunch fascination.

I can’t wait for you to try these. Like what you see here be sure to stop by my blog at A Dash of Sanity and get some more drool worthy recipes. Enjoy! XOXO San
