  • 5 ounces dark chocolate chips
  • 20 cherries, stems attached
  • 1 tsp. chili powder

Step by Step:

  1. Place a piece of wax paper on a large baking sheet and set aside.
  2. Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on low for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the chili and stir until thoroughly combined.
  3. Dip the cherries in the chocolate one at a time, lowering them in by the stem. Place on the wax paper and place the baking tray in the oven once all the cherries have been dipped. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
