About this recipe: A wonderful recipe for in-season, fresh sweet cherries, which are infused with vanilla and dipped in dark chocolate. These are best if eaten fresh but can also be frozen for weeks in a covered tin.


Serves: 24 

  • 200g caster sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 225g plain chocolate, chopped
  • 24 fresh sweet cherries with stems

Prep:40min  ›  Cook:2min  ›  Extra time:8hr chilling  ›  Ready in:8hr42min 

  1. Pour the sugar into a shallow dish. Drop two drops of vanilla at a time into the dish in 24 separate places to form lumps of vanilla sugar. Set aside to allow the lumps to harden.
  2. Remove the stones from the cherries carefully from the bottom. I use a small curved dental tool. Ensure that the stem stays intact.
  3. When the lumps of sugar have hardened, insert them into the cherries where the pits were; set aside.
  4. Melt chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted and smooth.
  5. Hold cherries by the stem and dip into the chocolate leaving the very top uncovered. Set on greaseproof paper to dry. Refrigerate overnight to allow the sugar lumps to dissolve.
