If you like cherries and if you like chocolate, then today is the perfect day for you because it is National Chocolate Covered Cherry Day!  While the origin of this Day is unknown, it is known that perhaps the first time chocolate covered cherries were introduced in America was when “Cella’s Confections” started selling them in New York in 1929. These cherries have a liquid center with hard chocolate exterior.

 

  That being said, it is quite easy to make chocolate covered cherries at home! You just need to get some Maraschino cherries, some melted chocolate to dip them in, then refrigerate and enjoy. However, if you would like to take chocolate covered cherries to the next level, then try out some of the recipes we've featured below:

Chocolate-covered Cherries

This delicious confectionary can be made with a bunch of Maraschino cherries, encased in a dough mixture made with powdered sugar, margarine, condensed milk, salt and vanilla. After leaving the cherries for a while, dip them in melted chocolate and leave them on a wax paper sheet to be set.

Chocolate-Covered Cherry Cookies

Getting one step ahead of the cherries, make some cookie dough with butter, sugar, vanilla, egg, flour, unsweetened cocoa, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Place half of a Maraschino cherry in the center of each cookie and bake. Make a wonderful frosting with semi-sweet chocolate chips, condensed milk and maraschino cherry juice. Once the frosting is ready,  place a bit of it on each cookie. Let the cookies set and enjoy on the National Chocolate Covered cherry day.
