Dark Cherry-Chocolate Breakfast Pastry

CakeSpy Note: I am beyond ecstatic to announce that I have been invited as a media guest to the 45th Annual Pillsbury Bake-Off in Orlando, Florida! The event will take place in late March; til then, I am going to feature several of the sweets finalists here in anticipation of the big day!

I just want to tell you, I would wake up at 3 a.m. every day if you made me this.

Any takers?
