12 Days of Christmas Treats, Day 12: Chocolate Covered Cherries
And who would have thought a Christmas treat could be this simple? Chocolate covered cherries! They're so easy to make, so delicious, and often the first thing to leave the dessert table. Unlike chocolate covered strawberries that people make regularly, chocolate covered cherries seems to be a special dessert that only comes out during the holidays.
Even though I don't think you folks need a list of ingredients, I'll give one to you anyways, since it's the holidays and all. Merry Christmas!
Chocolate Covered Cherries
-Maraschino cherries (with the stems)
*white chocolate for drizzling is optional
Simply melt the chocolate, dip the cherries into the chocolate, and then place the cherries onto a sheet of wax paper. Then pop them into the fridge for about 30 minutes to harden.
Normally I leave my chocolate covered cherries plain, however, I had some left over white chocolate chips after making the double layer easy fudge, and thought drizzling some white chocolate would make the cherries look fancier.
