Peanut Butter Chocolate Cherries
1 jar of cherries with stems ( they only come in small jars) drain and keep 2 tbsps. juice
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cup icing sugar
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons cherry juice from the jar
2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate
Combine peanut butter, icing sugar, melted butter and cherry juice in the Cuisinart until it comes together like a ball. Knead the dough and make into round balls. Poke a hole in the dough and put the cherry in with the stem on the outside. Mould the dough around the cherry until nice and smooth. Do this with the rest of the cherries on a parchment lined cookie sheet or one lined with a silpat. Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.
Melt the chocolate. Pick up the cherries by the stem and dip in and put back on lined cookie sheet and refrigerate for an hour. Enjoy!!
Sometimes in the jar of cherries you will find some cherries without stems. I mould the dough around the cherry without the stem.
Sometimes I melt some white chocolate and swirl it on the cherry with a fork and refrigerate until dry.
