Cherries Dipped In Chocolate

Cherries Dipped In Chocolate

Three friends and I had truffle-making day. We made a boatload of wonderful truffles with liqueurs on the inside and randomly (I mean, measured and carefully...) mixed dark chocolates on the outside. Besides the truffles, we also made lots of caramels and chocolate-covered cherries.

They are a little soft and spread out from using coconut oil instead of Crisco in the outer mix, but they are better-tasting and healthier this way (not that maraschino cherries will ever be in any way healthy). All in all, we had a great time, and this will hopefully become a yearly event.


Think good thoughts!

Alissa,
How much fun that must have been! I love the idea of the coconut oil as I have heard such good things about it. Thanks for letting us in on your little secret. Hope to see more yummy contributions in the future. :-)
