Chocolate and cherries love each other! Dipped in chopped pistachios, it's like a group hug! If you don't have fresh cherries, use maraschino cherries! Adapted from Country Living magazine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Place the pistachios in a shallow bowl and set aside. Place chocolate in a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. Bring cream to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.
  3. Pour hot cream over chocolate and let sit for about 30 seconds; stir until the chocolate melts completely.
  4. Holding by the stem, dip the bottom of a cherry in the chocolate mixture, lightly shake off excess chocolate, and dip the cherry in the chopped pistachios.
  5. Transfer to the prepared sheet pan. Repeat with remaining cherries, refrigerate for 10 minutes, and store in a cool, dry place. Cherries will keep for several hours. Enjoy!

Made these for one of the monthly groups I host, & I hope to have at least 2/3 of them still around when those people get here this evening ~ My other half & I are already making pigs of ourselves over these VERY TASTY LITTLE BITES! The combo of dark chocolatte & pistachios = WONDERFUL! I did use the maraschino cherries, but come the peak of the next cherry season, I'll be making these again! Many thanks, Sharon!
