I couldn’t be happier that cherries are in season right now. I adore them and am honestly eating at least a bowlful daily. Need to get my fill in before they disappear again soon. The season is much too short for my liking. I am also experimenting with lots of cherry recipes, so you can expect some more in the next couple weeks – cherry chocolate smoothies, cherry crumble, and maybe some homemade version of Cherry Garcia ice cream if I can figure it out. I thought we would start with one of my favorites – simple chocolate covered cherries. It couldn’t be easier.
A note on the points. If you count the cherries in the recipe then it is 1 point for 1 cherry, 1 point for 2 cherries, or 3 points for 5 cherries. If you don’t count the cherries it is 1 point for 4 cherries or 8 cherries for 3 points plus.

Optional: To spice things up consider using white chocolate as well or dipping the cherries in crushed nuts (pistachios would be delicious) after dipping them in the chocolate.
