In honor of Valentine's Day coming up on Sunday, I wanted to post a fun holiday treat that I LOVE A WHOLE LOT.
And it is a simple one, too. The best kind.
Chocolate Covered Cherries
1 or 2 jars maraschino cherries w/stems
1 pkg. special dark chocolate chips (or the chocolate chip flavor of your choice)
Place the cherries on a paper towel to dry. Wet cherries won't hold the chocolate.
Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler (or in a small pan set inside a larger pan with some water). Dip the cherries, holding by the stem, and cover completely or halfway and place on wax or parchment paper. Place in fridge to harden.
How simple is that?? And, girl, they are good! My new favorite goody at Christmas and a great excuse to indulge on Valentine's Day, too.
