Thread: The 65% cocoa dark Chocolate Covered Cherries are definitely better!!

  1. #1
    John Kuthe Guest

    Default The 65% cocoa dark Chocolate Covered Cherries are definitely better!!

    And I'm willing to BET MONEY Bryan will agree (I am *that* confident!)

    My candy making buddy Scott disagreed though, saying while he likes
    the 65% dark chocolate, he does not like that much of it at a time.
    Scott's kind of a wimp that way, but I understand what he means. His
    tastes are more in line with the majority of average folks. Good thing
    too, cause he works in R/D for Panera Bread, and as a manufacturer and
    retailer of food products, Panera's aim is to appeal to the most
    people it can.

    Luckily, I do not sell my Christmas Candy, so I can make it the way
    *I* like it! And screw the majority with average mediocre tastes!!
    They will just have to suffer with my EXCELLENCE!!

    HA!!

    You're a TROLL and a braggart TROLL at that. Your tastes aren't even up
    to mediocre. Nothing about you is excellent.

    I love Panera. It's pricey, and it's a ton of calories, but it's worth it.

    Oh hell no! That's why I invented my Chocolate Covered Cherries. I use
    real Bing cherries, not those maraschino things that are only called
    cherries because at one time, they used to be.

    Good. I was going to relate some maraschino horror stories. But I'll keep
    those to myself.

    So do I. And I always loved the idea of a chocolate covered cherry,
    but I never had one that had a real cherry in it. That's why I
    invented mine.


    And they really ARE that good. I'd put them up against anything
    comparable.

    I have never had a chocolate covered cherry that had a real cherry
    inside it. Ever, from anyone.

    I think most people cover chocolate-covered cherries in a candy shell. I
    think it increases the shelf life.

    I never cared for it, but I do like Jordan almonds and M&Ms.

    I Googled "chocolate covered cherries" and every hit I got was either
    for chocolate covered maraschino cherries or dried cherries. I can't
    believe I am the only person in the world who covers fresh Bing
    cherries in chocolate, but I'm still waiting to find another like I
    make.

    And yes I cover each cherry in a soft almond and vanilla flavored
    "shell" before hand-dipping in real dark chocolate, but this shell
    liquefies over several days and mixes with the juice from the liquor-
    soaked fresh cherries into a liquidy center in which the fresh pitted
    Bing cherry marinates until eaten.

    This year's were heavier on the almond extract than usual, or perhaps
    the one I ate had proportionately more fondant, which is where the
    almond flavor is, right? I thought as soon as I tasted it, this is
    more almondy than usual. If they had been covered with milk
    chocolate, they would have been too almondy, but the dark balanced it
    out better.

    I have mixed a little vanilla in with a bottle of cinnamon extract,
    and have occasionally applied it to my lips for a calorie free flavor
    treat. I need to go by Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate, and get some
    maltitol chocolate.

    Could have been one with more fondant than others. I scale the fondant
    by hand, not
    precisely. And possibly more almond extract too, I'm not shy when I
    add the 2 tsp of almond extract to the fondant recipe when I make it.
    I may spill a little more in. Not a lot more.

    I saw a recipe for a marshmallow fondant the other day. Sounds groovey, but
    I wouldn't put it on a wedding cake.
