1/2 cup Butter, unsalted (softened - bottom layer)
1/3 cup Granulated sugar (bottom layer)
1 cup All-purpose white flour (bottom layer)
300 ml Condensed milk, sweetened (1 can - topping)
2 tbsp Butter, unsalted (topping)
2 tsp Vanilla extract, imitation, without alcohol (topping)
96 gm Candied cherries (3/4 cup, chopped- topping)
57 gm Baking chocolate, semi-sweet (your choice of chocolate! - topping)

Instructions


Bottom Layer:

- butter
- sugar

Mix the above using an electric mixer (I use my Kitchen Aid). Press this mixture into the bottom of a parchment paper lined square (9 inch) pan and bake for approximately 15 minutes at 350 degrees, until light golden in colour.

Topping:

- condensed milk
- butter
- vanilla

Combine condensed milk and butter and melt in a saucepan until bubbling. Once it begins to boil, stir constantly for another 3 minutes. Add vanilla and cherries and remove from heat, stirring to combine.

Pour over top of bottom and return to 350 degree oven for approximately 20 minutes, until bubbly and light golden in colour.

Melt chocolate squares and drizzle over top of pan.
