CHOCOLATE DIPPED CHERRIES

chocolate or colored candy melts

Maraschino Cherries with stems

chopped nuts

sprinkles

DIRECTIONS

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

Mmmmm…Maci’s favorite

dip

sprinkle

Oh my!

(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

Oh those look yummy! The little girls are just darling.
I will be thinking about you this week, and hope that things will go well for you. Hang in there . . . if I can do anything at all, I’m happy to help. Hope Mark’s not sick today!
