> Chocolate Dipped Bing Cherries
Recipe: Chocolate Dipped Bing Cherries
1 Cup White Sugar
1 1/2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
8 Ounces Semisweet Chocolate- Chopped
24 Bing Cherries W/ Stems
- Pour the sugar into a shallow dish. Drop two drops of vanilla at a time into the dish in 24 separate places to form lumps of vanilla sugar. Set aside to allow the lumps to harden.
- Pit the cherries carefully from the bottom. I use a small curved dental tool. Make sure the stem stays intact.
- When the lumps of sugar have hardened, insert them into the cherries where the pits were; set aside. Melt chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted and smooth.
- Hold cherries by the stem and dip into the chocolate leaving the very top uncovered. Set on waxed paper to dry. Refrigerate overnight to allow the sugar lumps to dissolve.
