This is so easy to make! Simply melt the chocolate and dip the cherries. Be sure to have a sheet of wax paper on hand. The recipe works well with strawberries, too.

I prefer a more crunchier coating for cherries. This would be better on strawberries. If you haven't made something like this before I would choose a more detailed recipe. It isn't specific on how much milk. Only says till smooth but chocolate melted is smooth before the milk? Definatley don't use the entire 8 oz of milk. Read More

You may want to heat the milk with the chocolate. Hot chocolate and cold milk do not mix well. Read More

I was so happy to find a chocolate dipped fruit that didn't have huge amounts of shortening in it. Thanks! Read More

Worked great with strawberries make sure to double due to the fact that 3 servings just are not enough. Read More

After reading the reviews...I didnt add the milk. I just melted the chocolate and dipped... but I did cheat a little I soaked the cherries in razzmatazz schnapps for a couple days drained and dipped. Perfect:) Read More

Very bad I added the milk like it said and it did not work right at all it clumped very quickly. So I did another batch and this time put the milk in first and heated then added chocolate in and heated it with it it still clumped very badly. Read More

This was ok. It worked well for a Valentine's Day treat. It was simple. I used it on strawberries though. However it wasn't exactly what I was looking for. For me it worked better drizzled over the berries instead of dipped. I will be trying this again though to see if I have better results!!! For now if I could give it 3.5 stars I would. Thanks for sharing it!!! Read More
