Drunk Dunked Cherries

I'm always a sucker for fruit soaked in alcohol. It's fun, it's festive, it's delicious! When I saw a picture on Pinterest of soaked cherries dipped in chocolate, I knew I had to give it a try.

 What you need:
  • fresh cherries
  • amaretto liqueur
  • almond bark, melted
What you do:
Cover cherries in amaretto. Allow them to soak for a few days. I soaked mine for 2 days.

Dry off the drunk cherries.

Dunk each cherry in melted almond bark.

Allow cherries to harden on wax paper.
 Done! Yep, it's quite easy.
Pssst- Do yourself a favor and make a drink with any leftover amaretto that the cherries didn't 'drink'. It's really good in hot chocolate.
