Fresh Cherries dipped in chocolate and pistachio nuts how delicious. This can hardly be called a recipe only 3 ingredients. These look lovely served in a big glass bowl in the centre of the table. You can also use other nuts or 100's & 1000's or try strawberries for a nice change. Cooking time is chilling/setting time

SO good; I used the white chocolate option, and fixed only a few, to share with DS. He loved them, as did I! Perfect, and stunning, with the red, white and green...if only you could get fresh cherries at Christmas! HA! Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe, Annetty.
