A Last Minute Gift of Love: Dark Chocolate Cherry Candies

Dark Chocolate Cherry Candies Recipe

As much as I love to receive a Valentine or two, I also love to give a lot away. This year, my thought of what to give or make started quite lofty but it did not take long to tell myself, “Now just how are you going to get all that done? Get back to reality. Something simple, made with love and others in mind will do just fine!” This four-ingredient recipe for Dark Chocolate Cherry Candies covers all that. Dark chocolate, crunchy and cherry good, need I say more? Well, one more thing.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Dark Chocolate Cherry Candies

Ingredients for 4 dozen candies:


LINE baking sheets with wax paper.

MICROWAVE chocolate in large, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 45 seconds;

STIR. If pieces retain some of their original shape, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted. Stir in pretzels, cherries and almonds until well coated. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared trays. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. Store in airtight container at room temperature.

Coarsely chopped dried apricots or sweetened dry cranberries can be substituted for the dried cherries. Your choice of nuts, instead of the almonds will work out fine too!
