YUM! DBR & I wanted something light and sweet for dessert, for the 4th. We decided to do dark chocolate dipped cherries and boy were they good! The recipe is as followed:
1 bag of cherries
3 bars of dark chocolate
Wash the cherries & pat dry. Bring water to a boil. Place bowl (i.e. stainless steel or glass) on top of sauce pan with boiling water underneath. Break up chocolate and place in bowl. Stir melted chocolate with a spatula. Dip cherries in chocolate. Place on a piece of parchment paper, in a flat hard surface (I used a casserole dish) and put in refrigerator for a minimum of 10 minutes.
We just left them in there until we were ready to eat them, after dinner. This is beyond easy and SO DELICIOUS! I forgot how well chocolate melts over boiling water too.
