Last Minute Valentine Treat and Valentine Card

Anyone can make chocolate covered strawberries……but how about chocolate covered cherries for that someone special.  Aren’t they pretty????  And easy too!


Cherries Dipped in White Chocolate

Serves 6-8, takes about 20 minutes


2 big handfuls of cherries

1 cup of  white cooking chocolate

1 packet of silver sugar pearls


Line a baking tray that will fit in your fridge with baking paper.

Melt chocolate in the microwave or in a bowl over a barely simmering saucepan of water. White chocolate can be trickier to melt than milk or dark, so watch it carefully because once it starts to burn, there’s no going back.

Dip the cherries into the melted chocolate a few times then place on the baking tray. While the chocolate is still wet, drop tiny pinches of sugar pearls onto the chocolate. You may have to pick up the cherry to get good coverage, though there’s no need for precision.

Place the cherries in the fridge until the chocolate is set.

Serve with an empty bowl, ready for the discarded stems.



Now for a last minute Valentine…..


Make an envelope using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets and the Stacked with Love DSP Stack.  Pop in a note card stamped with hearts and greeting from Groovy Kind of Love.  Add an arrow from Essentials Wooden Elements colored with Cherry Cobbler Blendabilites.  And now you have a darling Valentine perfect for anyone special in your life!


until next time…..
