Chocolate Dipped Cherries
You can enjoy these with fudge brownies, on their own, or as part of a dessert buffet. When dipping the cherries in the melted chocolate, be sure the cherries are completely dry, as even a drop of water can cause the chocolate to “seize”, becoming a chalky, semi-solid mass that will not set properly.
