Chocolate-Dipped Cherry Treats
Chocolate and fruit is a classic combination. Simple, elegant and delicious.
- 2 lbs fresh Bing cherries
- 9 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
- Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Heat chocolate over medium heat, stirring often with a wooden spoon until melted, about five minutes.
- Wash cherries with stems on and let dry. Carefully pick cherries up by the stem and dip just over half-way into the melted chocolate. Let excess chocolate drip back into the pan or bowl.
- Place on aluminum-lined cookie sheet and set in the refrigerator until the chocolate has set, about 15 minutes. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Preparation Tip: Using a cherry pitting device, carefully remove the pit going through the cherry cross-ways rather than from top to bottom. This will allow the stem to remain intact. The hole in the middle of the cherry will be covered with chocolate when dipped.
