Combining fresh cherries, brandy and chocolate, these Cherry Liqueur Chocolates make a perfect end to any meal or can be enjoyed on their own as a special treat.
The inspiration for these chocolates was actually a chocolate shop in the Blue Mountains, New South Wales where something similar was being sold for more than $100/kg ($50/lb.). Obviously I thought I could do better for a substantially lower cost. This recipe is the result.
Step 1: Ingredients
The good thing about this recipe is that it works with or without the alcohol meaning that if you have a mix of adults and children you can simply skip the alcohol for some of the cherries so no one has to miss out.
12 Fresh Cherries with stalks still on
½ cup Dark or Milk Chocolate
1 cup Brandy
You can multiply the amounts of cherries and chocolate so long as you have enough brandy to soak the cherries.
