I hope you appreciate the grainy food porn pics!
1 tablet dark chocolate
1 microwave safe bowl required
If you're feeling ambitious: chop up toasted almonds to roll the cherry in after coating with chocolate. yummm
Step 1: Melt a Tablet of Dark Chocolate
Put the tablet of chocolate in a microwave safe bowl.
If you're lazy:
Micro it for 1 minute. You can use the cherry to stir the melted chocolate around and cover it. (How eco, no utensils)
If you're not:
Micro for 30 seconds.
Then stir the chocolate around until it melts from the heat of the bowl. This way ensures the chocolate won't burn.
Step 2: Roll the Cherry Around to Coat
Either eat it fondue style with melted chocolate.
Or pop it in the freezer for a minute - and voila - chocolate covered cherry in 2 minutes!
(PS You can microwave the leftover chocolate and swath it up with another cherry from the bowl :)
