Mountaintop Cherries
Yield: 6-8 Cooking Time: 15 Minutes Difficulty: Easy Full Episode: Fantastic Fruit! (Season 3)

Directions:

  1. Wash and dry cherries. Use a cherry pitter to remove all of the pits from the cherries. Leave the stem attached.
  2. Melt the white and dark chocolate chips in two different bowls in the microwave. Be sure to melt the chips in 20-second intervals, stirring between each interval.
  3. Repeat until both kinds of chips are melted.
  4. Holding the cherry by its stem, dip it halfway in the dark chocolate. Set it on a tray lined with wax paper and repeat the process for all of the cherries. Place the cherries in the freezer for 5 minutes to allow chocolate to harden.
  5. Next, holding the cherries by the stem dip the cherries into the white chocolate. Then sprinkle on the decorative sprinkles before placing the cherries back on the tray.
  6. Cherries can be kept at room temperature or chilled.
