Happy Valentines Day!

First, please forgive me for my blogging escape! I don't know why I wasn't posting except that I was falling asleep at 8:00 every night! It has been crazy daisy at school!

To make for it, I want to share with you my famous Tipsy Cherries. I am well known for these delicious, powerful little lumps of love.

Tipsy Cherries

1 large jar of maraschino cherries, with stems, drained, save jar!
1 bottle of cherry brandy
6 squares chocolate almond bark, or your favorite dipping chocolate

Fill the jar of cherries with cherry brandy. Let "steep" for 4-6 weeks. Drain, blot with paper towels. Melt chocolate in the microwave in a deep bowl. Dip the cherries by the stem into the chocolate. Let set. THESE ARE NOT FOR CHILDREN!

One should only indulge in 3-4 of these decadent cherries in an evening!

You will probably notice some chocolate covered strawberries as well. What else to do with the left over chocolate? Our Walmart had beautiful, long stemmed strawberries but I failed to pick some up this weekend and they are now history. Next time...

Would you like to comment?

  1. Both cherries and strawberries look delicious!

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. I think I'll pass on the cherries, but those strawberries look delish!

    I like the look of your header. Everything is so pretty even your napkins!

    My mouth started watering with the first glimpse of the picture, so I can only imagine how yummy they really are!

    Happy <3 Day to YOU and yours!

    PS...don't forget my first ever blog auction today!

  7. Hi Terri, just stopping back by to tell you, yes those are Mary Carol's little plates. I call them bread and butter, but they are actually smaller than bread and butter. I have the small rectangular platter in this pattern and a few other pieces. Can you tell me if Schaefer House has Mary Carol's dishes? I haven't stopped there in awhile. In fact a year, probably!

    Is there another shop in JC, that provides MCG pieces?


  8. I so love chocolate covered strawberries!
