This Chocolate Covered Cherries Cocktail is a great? A true?cocktail for chocolate lovers.? I was thrilled when Dee asked me to guest post for her. But I knew I had to bring a fun recipe that y?all would enjoy! So?I decided to try a cocktail that recreates the flavors of my all-time favorite holiday treat?.the Chocolate Covered Cherry!
I only buy them once a year. Why? Because I would end up weighing a gazillion pounds because I would eat them all. Yes, I really would. I have absolutely Z.E.R.O self-control. Although, that?s probably not a good thing when creating a drink to taste like my favorite treat. This is probably a disaster waiting to happen!

Life doesn’t get much better than good alcohol and good chocolate…Sign me up for that party :)

That looks great! I love chocolate covered cherries, too (as long as it’s liquid inside, instead of creamy). And I found another recipe that calls for Kahlua and then wondered what I’d do with a whole big bottle of it. This could help with that ;)

This sounds so good. It would be great to make for a special party. I will have to keep this in mind for New year’s.
I love chocolate but I love white chocolate more than the brown or dark one. Is it possible to use white chocolate for this recipe? Do you think the taste would be ok? I also am planning to create these without the alcohol for the kids and those who don’t drink alcohol. I think they are going to love it.
