Please, have mercy on me and do not tell me how horrible these things are for my diet. I LOVE them. My grandma loved them. I’ve told you before that money was always very tight for them but she would buy herself a little box of chocolate covered cherries every year when the Christmas candies were in the grocery store. As much as she loved them, she would always share with me. I probably would not! I would hide them and wait til Addie went to bed and then I’d eat the entire box!
I haven’t seen the price on them this year but I limit myself to one box because I have no self control with them around. I always buy one box – the smallest box I see. Vince will say “They’re only around once a year (though I think they are available always but just not front and center like they are at Christmas) . . buy two boxes. You love them!” I do love them but nope, one box is more than enough.
Last night I was watching you tube and came across this video by The Salted Pepper. I love most of her videos and recipes. I’ve ordered the cherry bakery emulsion and the invertase, which I have never heard of, and I’m absolutely going to make these. I will use milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate. Either the cherry bakery emulsion or the invertase will not arrive til somewhere around November 20 so I won’t be making them this week.
Who knew you could make your own chocolate covered cherries? I really should stay off Youtube but that’s what I was doing while the dogs were sleeping next to me.
