Ombre White Chocolate Covered Cherries


1 lb fresh cherries

22 oz Ghirardelli white chocolate chips

Pink & red food coloring




Step 1: Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Rinse cherries & pat dry. Split the chocolate chips into 4 small bowls.

Step 2: Put a pot of water on medium heat until it is simmering. Place a metal bowl on top and pour in one bowl of white chocolate chips. Let heat for 2-3 minutes, and when the chocolate starts to glisten, stir continuously until chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from heat immediately and pour back into small bowl.

Step 3: Add a small amount of food coloring (this will be your palest color) and stir thoroughly. Holding the cherries by the stem, dip them into the chocolate one at a time, and place onto the baking sheet to set.

Step 4: Repeat with the other 3 bowls of chocolate, adding progressively more food coloring to each bowl. Put the baking sheet of cherries into the fridge to cool.
