This candy is incredibly easy and fast to make and has a big payoff. Cherries and chocolate are a match made in Heaven and with the addition of salted pretzels and a few soft marshmallows…very tasty!
I would say from start to finish, making this candy will take you about 25 minutes, if that. Perfect for a dinner party or for decadent little holiday gifts to give to your favorite neighbors.
I was running out of daylight for pictures…so the chocolate is still warm here. They will set up once they cool. The coconut oil will keep them from getting too hard.
~ Dark Chocolate Cherry Surprise ~
1 1/2 Cups of 70% Dark Belgian Chocolate, chopped
1 1/2 Tablespoons of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
1/2 Cup of Dried Cherries, chopped
1/2 Cup of Salted Gluten Free Pretzels, broken up into small pieces
1 Cup of Miniature Marshmallows
A Tiny Amount of Sea Salt
Melt the chocolate and coconut oil slowly in a double boiler or microwave. Add the cherries, pretzels, and marshmallows and stir. Spoon into miniature foil lined candy papers. Sprinkle the tiniest amount of sea salt on top of each one. Allow to set. If you want them to set quickly, allow them to rest in the refrigerator for a half an hour.
