Cherry Liqueur chocolates (To my Mom) and happy Mothers day!









Always I try make to my mom some recipe she really loves, and I remember she loves so much liqueur chocolates especially cherries!
And yesterday at night thinking what I could make I find this lovely recipe, is simple and delicious only need some patience because you have to coated the cherries twice, anywa I tasted one and is delicious.
For this recipe I used Marraschino but you can use others cherries too.
I adapted this recipe from Flavoursome Delights
Happy Mothers day tomorrow!






  




Combining cherries,  liqueur and chocolate, these Cherry Liqueur Chocolates make a perfect end to any meal or can be enjoyed on their own as a special treat.

The inspiration for these chocolates was actually a chocolate shop in the Blue Mountains, New South Wales and this is the recipe.



Ingredients

15 to 20  Cherries with stalks still on
(fresh or in jar I used Great Value Maraschino cherries)
250 g. dark chocolate
 Brandy o cognac


Method

Use a Cherry Pitter to remove the stones from the cherries. (If are Value cherries they dont have stones)
Make sure you punch through the side of the cherry so as to leave the stalk intact..


Place the cherries into a ramekin or other container and pour in enough of the Brandy so as to cover them. After doing this, put them aside and leave the Cherries to soak for at least 4 hours.
Temper and melt the chocolate.
(temper to bain marie)
Remove the cherries and dry them off using paper towel. The cherries must be dry as if there is any liquid on them will ruin the melted chocolate when they are dipped.




Dip the cherries into the chocolate. This is actually a two part process. The first dip is just to coat the base of the cherry. Once dipped, lay the cherry on its side and allow the chocolate to set.

With the bottoms dipped next coat the cherries in chocolate
and again lay them aside to set.

Coat the cherry with chocolate

Why the double dip? Well if you don’t do this, when you set the lay the cherries down to allow the chocolate to set, the weight of the cherry will push through the liquid chocolate creating a hole. This will then let the cherry juice escape greatly reducing their lifespan and making a big mess as well.

The double dip allows you to create a strong even coating


Once the chocolate has set completely they are ready to serve. They go together very well with Coffee after a meal or are delicious on their own as a special treat

Enjoy:)
