These Chocolate bites are really tasty. During the summer we like to freeze them and eat them ice cold. They definite do not last long though. Note: time does not include the 20 minute chilling period.
- 3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 5 ounces milk chocolate chips
- 10 dried cherries
- 10 macadamia nuts
- 3⁄4 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
- 20 -26 paper, candy liners (like mini muffin liners)
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Place a large glass measuring cup in the refrigerator to chill.
- Place the chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler and set over hot water.
- Stir chocolate until melted.
- Spoon the chocolate into the paper candy liners, and spread it up the sides with a small spoon or pastry brush.
- Place the liners upside down on the cookie sheet to harden.
- Place a cherry or nut in the bottom of each chocolate cup.
- Remove large measuring cup from refrigerator and add the heavy whipping cream and confectioners' sugar. With an electric mix whip the cream on high speed until it is just beginning to hold its shape.
- Spoon or pipe a little cream into each chocolate cup making sure to cover the cherry or nut completely.
- Let chill a minimum of 20 minutes.
These little morsels are to die for!! I made them for our girl scout gathering last weekend and they were a hit!! Thank you!
I'm so glad I tried this recipe! Easy to make candies that look adorable. I did half in gold candy papers (macadamia nuts) & the other half in red papers with the cherries. I don't have a double boiler so I just used the microwave to melt the chocolate. I ended up with almost 30 candies to use up all the chocolate & whipped cream. I also like them best in the freezer. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Chef Buggsy! This special baby was adopted from the PAC Spring 2008 orphanage.
