Cherries are of course delicious on their own, but we can’t get enough of these chocolate dipped cherries! So easy to prepare and such a delightful snack to grab on the run when you feel like a little extra indulgence.
We’ve dipped our cherries with dark chocolate as it has more health benefits, less fat and less sugar than milk or white chocolate, which is better for losing weight. But if you are feeling like a little extra treat you can also use milk or white chocolate (just remember this will change the nutritional information) – enjoy!
