Chocolate & Peanut Dipped Cherries

Desert | July 26, 2016 | By

This is hardly a recipe. It’s a fridge full of fresh summer fruit and a sweet tooth after work. It’s something to pop in your mouth while you’re making dinner and are too hungry to wait for it to be ready. It’s a little bit of sweet with a little bit of antioxidant. 4 ingredients to enjoy on a deck, porch or patio, savouring the simplicity of the season. 

You can easily adapt this recipe based on how many cherries you’d like to make (I did 10)


10 ripe cherries

1/4 cup chocolate, or chocolate chips

About 3 tbsp peanuts (raw or roasted)

Sea salt

5. Line a plate with parchment paper and assemble all ingredients. Dip each cherry into the chocolate, roll in the chopped peanuts, sprinkle with salt and place on the plate.
