A fun twist on chocolate-dipped cherries, these ombre-colored treats are so pretty and so yummy.


    • 1 pound fresh cherries
    • 22 ounces white chocolate chips
    • Pink and red food coloring


Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Rinse cherries & pat dry. Split the chocolate chips into 4 small bowls. Put a pot of water on medium heat until it is simmering. Place a metal bowl on top and pour in one bowl of white chocolate chips. Let heat for 2-3 minutes, and when the chocolate starts to glisten, stir continuously until chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from heat immediately and pour back into small bowl. Add a small amount of food coloring (this will be your palest color) and stir thoroughly. Holding the cherries by the stem, dip them into the chocolate one at a time, and place onto the baking sheet to set. Repeat with the other 3 bowls of chocolate, adding progressively more food coloring to each bowl. Put the baking sheet of cherries into the fridge to cool.
