Every night I eat a piece of good quality chocolate before going to bed. It’s just what I do. But this summer’s cherry season has me switching it up just ever so slightly. A few weeks ago I drizzled dark chocolate over pitted red cherries as a late night dessert snack. I wanted to enjoy the cherries fully with the chocolate as a secondary companion flavor note. Once I did this and refrigerated the cherries there was no going back. This would become my go-to summer dessert as a treat to myself. But no… my kids were having none of that. In fact, as soon as I would make a batch they would gobble them up so quickly I couldn’t make them fast enough. They are that good.
Today I posted my method on how to make these Chocolate Cherry Poppers. Sometimes it’s the most simplest of recipes that I end up enjoying the most. This one is no exception. Right now red sweet cherries are on sale all over the place. If you’re looking for a healthy dessert treat that feels a little indulgent, make these poppers. You will be so happy you did. Enjoy!
