  • Melt the chocolate by either heating it on the stove top while constantly stirring, or popping a glass bowl of chocolate into the microwave for about 1 minute, pulling it out to stir half-way through
  • Dip the sugar-coated cherries into the chocolate by holding the stem, and submerging the cherry all the way to the stem, making sure the chocolate is sealed completely over the cherry

  • Store these in a covered container in the refrigerator, and Refrigerate 1-2 weeks before serving. This allows the sugar to interact with the cherry juice, and break down into the pink sugar juice that you are used to when biting into chocolate covered cherries! 🙂
