Gluten Free Sugar Free Cherry chocolates
1 cup water
1/8 cup corn starch
2 – 8oz. packages sugar free chocolate chips
1- 12oz. package frozen Dark Sweet Cherries ( I used Great Value unsweetened)
1/4 Cup of your favorite sweetener ( I used Stevia)
2 Dozen Mini Muffin paper baking cups
In small sauce pan, whisk together water and corn starch, to make the cream filling. Place sauce pan on burner at medium high heat and continue to stir until it starts to bowl and thicken. This will go very fast, so watch it carefully. Remove pan from heat and let cool.
Line mini muffin pan with baking cups. In a medium size glass mixing bowl, melt chocolate chips in microwave on high for 2- 3 minutes, stirring half way through. When done stir to dissolve all of the chips, then use a regular spoon to dip melted chocolate into baking cups, lining the bottom and sides by using the spoon to spread it, completely coat each cup so that none of the paper is showing. Then add a frozen dark cherry into each cup. Place filled pan into the freezer for about 3 minutes.
Finely chop or puree’ the rest of the cherries and add to the filling in the sauce pan. Then stir in sweetener until all is blended. Remove muffin pan from freezer and spoon filling around cherries in each cup. Then top with remaining melted chocolate. Return muffin pan to freezer for another 2 minutes or until chocolate is set. Remove pan and serve, or fill candy boxes with cherry chocolates and give as gifts. Enjoy!
This recipe will make 2 dozen cherry chocolates.
