Indulge Amaretto-Soaked White Chocolate Cherries

5 years ago

Ever since I stumbled across this recipe for Amaretto (a favorite of mine, close second to Bailey`s) Soaked White Chocolate Cherries I have been absolutely DYING to try out this idea!

Finally getting the chance to get my hands on some amaretto I decided to give this recipe a try...and boy am I glad I did! They were AMAZING! A perfect little treat and I think they`ll make a great Valentines day gift next year or a little sinful treat for party guests whenever I decide to have a get-together.

*I let my cherries soak for roughly 36 hours or so.*

Sound mouth-watering? Here is the recipe from so you can try these melt-in-your-mouth cherries too!

Amaretto-Soaked White Chocolate Cherries
40 fresh unpitted cherries (cherries with pits works fine, too)
750 mL bottle of amaretto
12 ounces white chocolate chips
Vegetable oil

With a knife, make small ¼-inch cuts into each cherry. Place the cherries into mason jars, filling each jar about ¾ of the way full. Fill each jar with amaretto to just cover the cherries. Close each jar securely, and shake gently for 10 seconds before placing into the refrigerator. Let cherries soak for at last overnight, up to 48 hours.

Strain the cherry mixture (you can reserve the slightly cherry-flavored amaretto for cocktails) into a colander. Pat down each cherry with a paper towel or cloth until each one is dry.

Melt some of the white chocolate chips in the microwave, adding vegetable oil as needed. Stir well to create a chocolate coating.

By its stem, dip each cherry into the white chocolate coating. Let excess chocolate drip off before placing the cherries on to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate to set for at least 15 minutes before serving. Keeps best in the fridge for up to 1 day.
