I had such big plans.
I was going to make some awesome homemade chocolate covered cherries. It was going to be perfect timing for Valentine’s Day. Hubby was going to be so impressed with my decadent and delicious homemade treat.
Instead I presented him with these:
Ummm, here you go honey . . . . I love you!
Yup, the homemade chocolate covered cherries were an epic failure.
I had pinned this recipe called “Better Than Store Bought Chocolate Covered Cherries” onto my Pinterest Board and was anxious to try it. Don’t they look delicious? And the recipe sounded pretty easy too. I gathered my supplies and got busy in the kitchen.
Things started off smoothly. Fondant made? Check.
Cherries drained and spread out to cool in the freezer? Check.
Next step: “Wrap the cherries in the fondant, forming a tight ball.”
A tight ball? Ehhh.
How about a weird sticky ball? Check.
I kept plugging along.
“Return cherries to tray and freeze again for an hour.” Oh good, I can do that. Check.
And then the next step was just to melt some chocolate chips and dip those babies in there. Anybody can do that, right?
Yeah, sure. And I have the picture to prove it.
What went wrong? Beats me. But from now on we will not be making our own chocolate covered cherries.
I wonder if Hubby would like a nice steak dinner for Valentine’s Day instead?
I sure hope so.
