Sour Cherry Jelly Cakes & Hearts

These sweet sour cherry bombs are wonderful. They taste almost jammy but with that sweet sour balance. I ate all 4 in 2 days they're that good. Thank goodness they're healthy (and only 60 calories) They actually taste remarkably like a less sweet version of a roll up! 

I'm thinking next time I should spread them thinner and see if I can make healthy roll ups.. ah the possibilities. But for now, these will do me just fine. Quick, easy, health and delicious. What more could you ask for? A variation? ok- if you want a black forest jelly cake just add cacao/cocoa to this recipe! yum yum yum. I'm making that next.

Also if you're yet to discover WolframAlpha go check it out. It's great fun and has so much info. I've been using it for nutritional breakdowns of recipes and predicted weight loss calculations as well as for uni work. I'm sure you'll find some interesting uses for it too.

All the best,
