Most kids love maraschino cherries. These delightful cherry-banana muffins are fantastic and perfect for Muffins for Moms. Cherry Man makes the best giant cherries for creating treats. Here is the recipe. You can grab the free printable card over on my blog.
3/4 C margarine
3/4 C sugar
2 mashed bananas

Cherries for the Top
