Happy February! This might be the first year ever I am ahead of the game and ready to post holiday treats before said holiday actually occurs.
Ok, actually these are from Christmas, but whatever.
Pretend I'm cool.
These cherries are so pretty but they're kind of a pain in the butt to make. Just being honest there.
The recipe has multiple parts but can be spread over several days. Be aware that some of the steps require freezing ingredients for several hours or overnight. The cherries are delicious as soon as you dip them, but it can take up to a week for the centers to liquefy, so if that is important to you, you may want to make them well in advance.
You will need a food-safe paintbrush and a candy mold. If you want, you can skip that entirely and just dip the cherries by hand using a toothpick, but I love the nice professional look that a candy mold gives.
