Have you ever tried Chocolate Covered Cherries before? I remember having them for the first time when I was about 8 years old. I LOVED cherries and knew I’d love them even more coated in a powdered sugar dough and dipped in chocolate. It was easy to love them, but for some reason I had totally forgotten about them since recently. I hadn’t had any for decades, but I found a recipe from AllRecipes.com and decided to give them a try. The whole family loved these chocolate covered cherries!!
Before trying this recipe, I didn’t know just how easy they were to make! They’re perfect for holidays and gift giving and are the perfect little treat to serve at parties. The flavors of this little candy fruit are amazing. Being a white chocolate lover, I’m excited to try them next time dipped in white chocolate.
These treats were a little nostalgic for me, but I’m glad I know how to make them at home now. It’s always fun to buy treats, but homemade are always better! Right?!
