Chocolate Covered Husk Cherries

One of my customers who is from Europe upon seeing the husk cherries at the farmers' market for the first time said, "I can't believe you have these.  It's like I'm home!" So of coarse I had to ask what she normally does with them.  One of her answers was that they are used to garnish fruit trays.

I loved that idea! They certainly add interest...and let's get real....when you add chocolate to the mix things get that much more interesting!

So chocolate dipped husk cherries it is. You will be the talk of the next party you go to for sure.

Washing them is a bit complicated since you can't get the husk wet but you can still run them under water carefully to get off any sand.

Melt chocolate in a double boiler.

Dip washed husk cherries in chocolate and set on a baking sheet.

Place in the refrigerator just long enough for the chocolate to set. You don't want to leave these in the refrigerator for too long because husk cherries are in the tomato family and don't like to be cold.
