So Simple Chocolate Covered Cherries
9 oz. package of Sunspire Organic Chocolate Chips or other Vegan chocolate chips
1 or 2 jars of Maraschino Cherries; drained and dried on paper towels
(Opt.) Crushe'd Peanuts
This recipe is so very simple to do and only requires 2 ingredients!!!
Place chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and heat one minute; remove and stir very well. Return to microwave for up to 1 minute, or until almost melted. You don't want to over-cook the chocolate chips. Remove from microwave and stir very well again.
Dip cherries into melted chocolate; making sure the cherry is covered. Use a fork to lift the cherry from the chocolate and place on a sheet of wax paper. Thats it! Youre done!!!
If desired, roll the chocolate covered cherries in the crushed peanuts before placing them on the wax paper.
Place tray of candy in the fridge for at least 30 minutes for the chocolate to set. Enjoy!
Note: You can also do some Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts at the same time! We also stuffed a macadamia nut inside of a cherry before dipping them in the chocolate! Yum!!
