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.
- 1⁄2 cup pistachios, shelled, skinned, and finely chopped
- 4 ounces dark chocolate, grated
- 4 ounces heavy cream
- 1 lb about 50 sweet cherries, pitted, stems intact
- 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.
- Bring cream to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.
- Pour hot cream over chocolate and let sit for about 30 seconds; stir until the chocolate melts completely.
- 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.
- 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!
