Chocolate Covered Cherries are one of my favorite treats. They are also one of my fathers’ favorite treats. A gift of Chocolate Covered Cherries is one of the best gifts that I can receive.
Dipping fruit in chocolate make a delicious treat for my family. When I started covering fruit in chocolate, I simply could not leave out chocolate covered cherries.
Chocolate covered cherries are extremely easy and fast to make. They are also delicious!
