It’s that time of year again. Ladies you know, that time of year when our summer tans are completely faded and our poor skin is all dried out from the cold. It’s not pretty, but you can rejuvenate your skin easily with this Homemade Cherry Chocolate Face Mask. The beauty of it is that you only need 3 ingredients and chances are you already have them in your cupboard.

Here’s what you need to make your Cherry Chocolate Face Mask:

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons 100% cocoa (cacao)
  • 10 Maraschino cherries


Here’s what you do:

1. In a small bowl combine the Greek yogurt and cocoa. Mix until well blended.


2. In a separate bowl mash up about 10 maraschino cherries. You will want to mash these until they are in small chunks. Don’t worry about any syrup that releases from them as it will add to the overall mask.


3. Combine the cherries into the yogurt mixture and mix well.

4. Smear the cherry chocolate mask onto your face using your hands or a washcloth. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse well.

5. You can refrigerate any leftover mixture in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

This face mask offers many benefits. The chocolate (the cocoa) and cherries contain many antioxidants that help slow the process of aging. The Greek yogurt contains anti-bacterial properties that help fight acne and keep the appearance of your face looking fresh and clean!

  2. Bonnie Kenaz-Mara

    OK, yum! Hope I can put off eating it long enough to use it as a face mask.

  3. Travel Blogger

    ha ha right? I think I would want to eat it!

  4. Bri

    I didn’t know Greek yogurt helps with acne. This mask is super simple to make and I bet it smells lovely too.

  5. Ana De Jesus

    I love homemade masks and chocolate is really good for your skin contrary to common knowledge. Greek yogurt is great too

  6. Athena

    I have never tried a homemade mask but this is something I just may have to try. I would need to keep my children from eating it before it ends up on my face!

  7. Rebecca

    Cool face mask. Best part is if it accidentally gets in your mouth or eyes there aren’t any harmful chemicals to hurt you. Got love all natural beauty products.

  8. Jennifer

    This might be the best face mask recipe ever! Is it a beauty treatment or a dessert? Holy awesome, it’s both!

  9. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    This is the most delicious beauty treatment I’ve ever seen. I don’t know if I should put it on my face or into my belly. Wait… I can do both! Not at the same time, obviously…

  10. Jeanette

    That looks good enough to eat!! I need something to help this dried out face! I LOVE that it is chocolate I can’t wait to try it.

  11. Toni | BoulderLocavore

    I did not know this about yogurt. I used to see a natural facialist who would slather my face with honey for all its antibacterial and other properties. Love a facial you can eat too!

  12. Jeanine

    Oh gosh this is a face mask? It’d be all I could do not to eat it. It looks amazing. I’ll have to try it for sure!

  13. OurFamilyWorld

    I will have to make this every time I will use it. For sure, the leftover will be eaten.

  14. Amy Desrosiers

    I think I just want to eat this lol! I might even get some benefits on my face from the mess haha!

  15. Emily, Our house now a home

    So you make one for your face and one to eat? This looks amazing and have never heard of a face mask with these ingredients.

  16. Gloria @ Homemade & Yummy

    Wow…that does sound awesome….interesting ingredients…and you can eat it too!!

  17. MJ. L

    Wow I would never think of putting yogurt and chocolate on my face. Pretty cool!!

  18. Cathy Herard

    What an interesting idea, but I think I might be tempted to eat more than I actually put on my face.

  19. mommysgoneshoppingagain

    I think I would be wanting to actually eat the mask in lieu of putting it on my face! What a great idea! It would be all natural and not irritating to sensitive skin!

  20. Pam Wattenbarger

    Me too! It would be hard to have chocolate on my face and not eat it .

  21. Catherine S

    This sounds like a great face mask and I bet it smells good. I would be tempted to eat it.

  22. Brianna George

    I think I will skip this as a facemask and just eat it.:) haha.

  23. tara pittman

    So I can eat it as I place it on my face? Sounds good to me.

  24. Jennifer Sikora

    I would have never thought that by putting chocolate on my face that I could help it from aging. Chocolate is good for the body and the soul1

  25. Pam Wattenbarger

    I love a good face mask. Ones I can make at home using ingredients I already have are even better.

  26. Liz Mays

    That’s what I’m thinking. There’s no sense paying outrageous prices!

  27. irishred13

    Sounds like a nice way to relax this Valentine’s

  28. toughcookiemommy

    Chocolate is probably one of my favorite ingredients in the whole world. To be able to include it in a face mask would be an added bonus.

  29. lisa

    I want to eat this, not put it on my face! It sounds like a great face mask though. I will have to try it.

  30. Liz Mays

    You know I wanted to see this on your face! There’s no way it would make it to my face without a detour to my mouth.

  31. Terry

    There is no way I could put this anywhere near my face and not want to eat it. I would have to add some honey or something because I would be licking it off.

  32. Helene Cohen Bludman

    This wouldn’t stay on my face for very long. I would have to eat it!

  33. michelle

    This is a very unique face mask. I would have never thought about combining this items together

  34. Brandy

    That is pretty interesting. Never heard of a face mask like this, glad you shared it, I now wish to try it!

  35. alissa

    This sounds wonderful. I’d want to eat my face. Ha

  36. Michelle Gwynn Jones

    I can’t imagine making this and actually putting it on my face instead of in my mouth. One would need great restraint.

  37. Stacie

    That looks so easy to do. Hopefully it doesn’t get mistaken for a dessert while in the fridge.

  38. Cathi @ Simple Sojourns

    Okay … so I can’t decide if I want to put this on my face or have it for dessert! I’m thinking my grand daughter and I are going to have a good time getting pretty with this!! Thanks!!

  39. Marcie W.

    Now this is a face mask that is good enough to eat! I love maraschino cherries, so those would be especially hard to resist.

  40. Ora Lee Gurr

    A cherry chocolate face mask that looks good enough to eat should have a warning sign on the bowl when storing leftovers. I will definitely try this, since the weather is drying out my skin this year.

  41. Chubskulit Rose

    Ha, that would go to my mouth and not my face lol. It must have smelled so good though!

  42. Janell @ Saving You Dinero

    That sounds awesome! I would be tempted to lick my face!

  43. Elizabeth O.

    It looks too good to put on your face, lol! It would even make a lovely dessert! But I’ve heard how good chocolate is for your skin, so this is awesome.

  44. Yolanda @ Seeing It Their Way

    I was waiting for you to say, “kidding” this is actually a dessert recipe. I love it!

  45. NPC

    That mask looks good enough to eat! Chocolate is good for your skin, that is for sure.

  46. RUSS

    Ohhhh dear. This has to be the yummiest face mask. I had to double-check if I was reading it right because it sounded like dessert. I would definitely try this at home. I’m all for anything skin care.

  47. Shalama Jackson

    Interesting. It sounds more like dessert than a face mask but hey, why not?

  48. mary

    I didn’t know greek yogurt helps your skin. Hmm I’m thinking I will pass this info on to my teen daughter too. We love facemasks

  49. Kathy

    This is very interesting. I never would have thought to use any of these for a face mask. Makes me want to eat it instead haha! I’ll have to try and see how well it works.

  50. Jennifer

    I love making my own beauty products. This would make a great snack if i got hungry during the process!

  51. Healthier Steps

    I’m not sure that this mask would make it to my face. I would eat the entire bowl.

  52. carissagarabedian

    I think the antioxidants sound great except that I would want to eat this all off my face! It sounds so good!

  53. Stefanie

    I need to try this. It looks great!

  54. Ann Bacciaglia

    I love trying DIY beauty treatments. This will be a fun one to try with my Daughter.

  55. gingermommyrants

    This sounds like a great mask. I would want to eat it while i put it on my face lol. I bet it smells delicious.

  56. Lisa Bristol

    I will have to pick up some cherries so i can try this on the weekend. My skin has been so dry it needs a pick me up.

  57. April Mims

    I think I’m going to do the same thing! Sounds like the perfect Valentine’s day treat.

  58. Caroline Fernandez

    This is a great mask idea. I will be pampering myself on Valentines day. I will have to try this mask.

  59. [email protected]

    I would be licking that off my face.

  60. Theresa

    It wouldn’t last long on my face. I’d eat it all off quickly!

  61. RonRon

    If you put this kind of mask at my face, it won’t last longer, I will eat it in an instant!!

  62. simplybeingmommy

    Not sure if I want to put it on my face or in my dessert bowl. Sounds so yummy!

  63. Pam

    I think I would have a hard time deciding not to eat this but I bet it does make your face feel wonderful. I will have to give it a try.

  64. Carol Bryant

    This is going to be a Valentine treat for me. I will leave the bathroom door closed so the dog doesn’t try to eat it off my face LOL

  65. Jen

    I’m having trouble registering it as going ON my face and not IN my face. It looks great. Definitely need to make a double batch and stick one in the freezer.

  66. valmg @ Mom Knows It All

    That looks like a dessert! If we had a girls spa day I know of at least two women that would eat and it would never make it to their faces.

  67. victoria

    I really love homemade mask. And i so love your chocolate flavor mask. I’m so glad you share it.

  75. Ricci

    It really is amazing at how good dark chocolate and cocoa are for our bodies. Good externally, for the skin, hair, teeth, etc. And good internally for improving memory, our overall health, and our self worth. And to think it tastes, good, too! Thx for sharing the face mask recipe.

  101. Amy

    Wow this looks absolutely yummy, but at the same time this is a great facial mask I love it !!
