|Chocolate covered cherry filled with honey|
I love cherries, and my sister loves chocolate and honey, so I thought we'd combine the three things. One year, my grandpa got chocolate covered cherries in his stocking; they tasted really good! I thought honey would taste better than the liquid inside, so I thought I'd make this myself.
To make the recipe, you'll need chocolate chips, honey and Maraschino cherries. We used semi-sweet chocolate chips, which my dad suggested would work a little better than milk chocolate.
First, we got a saucepan and filled it with water, and placed another saucepan on top to make a double-boiler. There should be a parent there to make sure you don't get hurt. I lit the burner myself while my dad was watching.
