Directions

  1. Pour the sugar into a shallow dish. Drop two drops of vanilla at a time into the dish in 24 separate places to form lumps of vanilla sugar. Set aside to allow the lumps to harden.
  2. Pit the cherries carefully from the bottom. I use a small curved dental tool. Make sure the stem stays intact.
  3. When the lumps of sugar have hardened, insert them into the cherries where the pits were; set aside. Melt chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted and smooth.
  4. Hold cherries by the stem and dip into the chocolate leaving the very top uncovered. Set on waxed paper to dry. Refrigerate overnight to allow the sugar lumps to dissolve.

These are pretty good, but I didn't really taste the vanilla, and the dark chocolate overpowered the cherry flavor (I suspect I used more chocolate than recommended since I spooned the chocolate over the cherries instead of dipping them). DH loves them (he's a big fan of dark chocolate). I used Hershey's Special Dark chocolate chips (no chopping involved!).

Love how simple this recipe is to make and its done without high fructose corn syrup and other preservatives. Most difficult part was pitting the cherries. I found that slicing in X in the bottom of the cherry then gently squeezing out the seed to be the easiest and quickest method. You may want to wear gloves because the juice will stain your cuticles. I did half with vanilla extract and half with cherry extract to bring out the cherry flavor. Just go easy on the cherry extract...too much will give it a cough syrup flavor.

After reading the reviews about the difficulty in pitting the cherries, I decided to simply melt chocolate and dip the cherries in them, skipping the whole sugar and vanilla extract part. They tasted great! I used milk chocolate on half and then tried semi-sweet on the other half. I liked the milk chocolate better while my boyfriend liked both equally. Yes, you do have to spit out the pit this way, but it wasn't a big deal for us.
