cherry mash

cherry mash is a yummy candy of chocolate, nuts and cherry nougat center goodness. they have been gracing the world since 1876 and are not so easy to locate.  i recently however, found them at hobby lobby! after perusing the official website, i found a recipe area and hence below is the cherry mash cake! it is quite tasty and looks just like an enlarged version of the candy.
