Liquored cherries dipped in chocolate, great for Valentine´s or just to show your beloved how much (s)he means to you!
You need TIME. So think waaay in advance when making these, at least ten days for preparing them (better 15) After they are done you can keep the cherries for about a week (they never last that long here!)
Step 1: ingredients
You will need;
Fresh cherries, as many as you think you will need, this time I used about 20
A bottle of white rum (half for the cherries half for the cook)
Dark chocolate for dipping. I used Callebaut´s but any good quality one will do. The darker, the better. One cup.
Cellophane paper in pink and red, cut into squares about 3" per side.
Some kind of container(s) tins, boxes, whatever catches your fancy
Shreded pink tissue paper (china) hearts, confetti....
