CHERRY RIPE CHOCOLATE BASKETS

Sweet cherries in chocolate Chocolate, cherries and coconut are a match made in heaven (Hello Cherry Ripe bars!) and feeling a tad inspired by these Berry and Chocolate Bowls I decided to create my own little version using cherries and a chocolate and coconut sauce. The only moulds I had were those used to create easter eggs but this worked out well as each half acted as a little bowl/basket. Although not entirely necessary I decided to temper my chocolate. This not only creates a beautiful shine and snap but stops the chocolate baskets from melting at room temperature. Which is great especially if you don’t want to serve them straight away. Here’s a great guide depicting how to do so. Tempering chocolate takes a bit of practice but is well worth the effort and even if your attempts aren’t successful the chocolate still tastes great!
Sweet cherries in chocolate

What you will need:
2 cups of milk chocolate
1 cup dark chocolate
500 grams of cherries
Chocolate and Coconut Sauce. My recipe here.

What to do:
Temper your chocolate (both the dark and milk together) and pour into your moulds. Allow your moulds to set entirely before removing. Pour in a small amount of your sauce into each mould then top with your cherries. Drizzle with some extra sauce and serve. Yes it’s that easy! Enjoy!
