Healthy Cherry Ripe!

23 Dec

My favorite chocolate bar of all time is Cherry Ripe. I can’t go past the rich dark chocolate and the gooey cherry / coconut centre. Devine! I can’t remember the last time I had one and I all of a sudden got an intense craving for one yesterday.

After milling about my kitchen trying to make the craving go away I remembered – I have dark chocolate! I have cherries! And by god, I’ve got coconut! And from that, this delightful, antioxidant heavy dessert was made.

Note: 10 cherries comes to a total of 200 calories. Multiply recipe below to make more to share!


25g dark chocolate
10 ripe cherries
2 tsp of desiccated coconut

Break up the chocolate into small pieces and place in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in bouts of 30 seconds until completely melted.

Dip cherries into chocolate and sprinkle a little desiccated coconut on each.

Place cherries on a plate covered with baking paper and put in fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Once the chocolate has hardened they are ready to DEVOUR!

    Delish. Possibility of subbing out the cherries for…more chocolate?
    Merry Christmas woman!
