Chocolate Covered Bourbon Cherries #SummerDessertWeek

Some of today's items/ingredients were supplied by our #summerdessertweek Sponsors. As always, all opinions are my own.

I am always about making simple, yet tasty bites for when we have a crowd over and this recipe is no different.  I had these the first time probably 10 or so years ago at a party for a football game and was hooked immediately. The big difference is the few I have had before use the "jar cherries" and for this particular version I used fresh sweet cherries (Rainier) with no added sugar and they were even better than I anticipated! Yes, you do have do do a little more "work" with fresh cherries by pitting them but it took me less than 5 minutes to pit over a dozen of them ( thanks in large part to my amazing OXO cherry pitter!) These chocolate covered bourbon soaked cherries will become a staple at parties!

I was a little worried how this would go in the beginning because normally when I make them I just use the jar cherries and pour out half the juice and replace with bourbon and let sit for a few days. I wasn't sure without cherry juice to dilute the bourbon a little how they would taste but the cherries were just so juicy anyways, they used their own juices to meld with the bourbon and you get a nice mixture of both cherry flavor and bourbon with each explosive bite.


1 lb Rainier Fruit Cherries ( pitted)
1/2 cup bourbon
10 oz dark chocolate

Pit your cherries and then put in a container and pour in the bourbon. Make sure to seal with a lid overnight. The next day, drain the cherries ( save your cherry bourbon, because why would you waste it?!) pat the cherries dry. Melt the chocolate and using a toothpick or small fork, dip the cherries in the chocolate and cover completely. Place on a nonstick pan for the chocolate to set up and harden.

Enjoy. These also make great gifts. You can place them in a small mason jar or similar container and top with a bow and the perfect gift!
