  • 24 maraschino cherries, drained and patted dry
  • 8 oz semisweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp coconut oil or shortening

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Drain those cherries well and pat them dry with a paper towel.
  2. Next, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil together in a double boiler or microwave, stirring frequently until completely smooth and melted.
  3. Using a fork or toothpick, dip each cherry into the melted chocolate, tapping off any excess chocolate.
  4. Transfer the chocolate covered cherries to the prepared baking sheet as you go. If the chocolate starts to firm up too much, just reheat for 30 seconds.
  5. Once all the cherries are dipped, pop the tray into the fridge to fully set the chocolate coating, about 1 hour.
Box them up for a homemade gift, serve them at parties, or just keep them all for yourself - no judgment! 🤭 However you enjoy them, these chocolate covered cherries deliver big-time chocolate bliss in just a few bites. They're quick, simple, and insanely delicious! 😋🥰
