When I was a stay at home mom I used to collect the Pillsbury BakeOff books. This recipe is from 1974, the 25th Silver Anniversary edition. Mrs. Emil Jerzak of Porter, Minnesota won the $25,000.00 grand prize in the grocery products division. I still make these Chocolate Cherry bars! Thank you Mrs. Jerzak and Pillsbury.....
