Chocolate Dipped Cherries with Nuts and Sprinkles
My 5 year old niece makes these dipped cherries extra special
CHOCOLATE DIPPED CHERRIES
chocolate or colored candy melts
Maraschino Cherries with stems
Rest cherries on paper towels to absorb excess juice. Melt candy melts in microwave for 60 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds until smooth. Dip two cherries together into melted chocolate and cover in nuts or sprinkles.
Today I am in my sister’s kitchen with her granddaughter Maci. My sweet little niece is going to demonstrate how to dip cherries.
Rest the cherries on paper towels to absorb excess juice
have your dipping bowls ready
melt the chocolate in the microwave for 60 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds until smooth
Dip two cherries together into melted chocolate…this is how Maci does it
dip all the way into the melted chocolate
let the excess chocolate drip off
cover in nuts
keep those cherries close together
place on wax paper
Now for the pink ones with sprinkles
(I helped by sprinkling some on the top)
Place on wax paper until set
A Cherry Good Idea!!
Another sweet memory made in the kitchen
My beautiful nicht Maci in my childhood wooden shoes and hat my moeder made me
Maci isn’t just wonderful in the kitchen…she is a wonderful big sister to Victoria
Sometimes it’s not about how great the recipe is, but how great it is to do it together
