U want my cherry - WHAT!

So, I was sitting around last night. Admiring my throw back 70's shoes, I picked up last week. I couldn't afford a pair back then or should I say my mother couldn't. I was a mere baby girl... But, this time around I wasn't gonna let them pass me by again. Oh, no way, Yes, I know they are ugly and ugly is an understatement! But, I had No idea how comfortable they are. I may never take them off! Oh, yes, I have the traditional white socks on. I think I own 1 pair of purple and 1 red pair of socks. The other 100 are redneck white :-) I wear white Proudly-Proudly I say!! So, sitting around I developed a sweet tooth. Not your normal I want peanut m&m's sweet tooth. This is I want sumpin special. What could I whip up fast and not make a lot of fuss about it. Fast being the most important word there. But even more important, what the heck do I have on hand. Well,(hearing lil voices calling) those (lil devils) "cherries" have been starring at me for couple of weeks now...it can even be traced back to last girlie night with derfina...I caught her (she didn't know) *starrie eyed* in a gaze lovingly looking at my "cherries" LOL!!! (oh, you gotta ask her directly on that one) no seriously you have to ask her. No, this story is about me...LOL Okay back to my not normal sweet tooth. I had not really planned anything yet with those cherries so let me do sumpin special with them. I pulled out the ingredients I would need, more important ingredients that I had on hand. Then I started to work. Let me just show you some pictures of the process. I have to say it took absolutely no time to prepare and was really pleased with how well it turned out. It took even less time to make them disappear. I did share with the folks and they were in heaven. They had just finished dinner so the desert was just on time. I still have several left, because they really are sweet! Can't eat too many of these you would end up with a tummie ache big time. (Seriously-Stop already go ask derfina yourself!!)

This was done very small scale, I am thinking next time I will use better dishes, and work a lot faster with the melted chocolate. Of course it was 55 degrees in my house last night as I was making these. You all know I don't use heat, can't stand it. So, No wonder the chocolate chilled so fast! This was the "fast" sweet tooth satisfier I was looking for.


I don't think the stems are as looong as they uusse to be...dunno have to consult with derfina!!!
I have to say they really turned out yummie for my special tooth request
I have a very special occasion coming up in March this will be on the menu for sure. I can't wait to go shopping today for different nuts and sprinkles for them. I want to see what else I can come up with. Do a little test drive and get my technique down. Don't forget to go poke derfina about her lovingly looking at my cherries...do it...lol ,yes, I said do it...

Hey Stacey thanks for stopping by. They were yummie.

Reddirt Woman said...

That looks like you are having to much decorating the cherries fun... and I bet they were soooo tasty. Can you tie a knot in the stem with your tongue? Gosh, we used to have contests when a bunch of us would go to Sonic and get a cherry limeade.

Got to go find something for my sweet tooth now.

derfina said...

You KNOW what I have to say, gurrrlfriend. It tweren't the cherries I was looking at fondly-it was the stems! Let's see if it lets me comment THIS time. Ya mama sure was commenting last night. Oh wait-that was complementing, not commenting. *smirk*

derfina said...

Meant to say compliment, for all you Little Miss Grammar's out there

darsden said...

derfina-LOL I know exactly where you were missy! Like I know where Ya'Mama is all the time too! Maybe to hockey at least one game next week for El Juevo's birthday!

Well, personally, I LOVE those shoes. I had a pair of them I wore till they were falling apart. I need to find a new pair. I remember them being the most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever owned.
I hope you didn't eat all those cherries! I'm gonna be mad if I show up and there are NONE. tee hee

darsden said...

Hey TF, yes they are very comfee I had no idea. No, plenty of cherries left com'on over I put a pot of coffee on!

Lilly's Life said...

These look really good and what a great idea. Something fairly quick to do too. I must try it. Tell us what else you come up with too when you do them again.

darsden said...

Hey Lilly, how nice to see you again. I will and I am currently creating some new cookies, but I did not take pictures maybe after I will.

Braja said...

Mmmmmmmmm.....and when you come to India, you will be packing the ingredients for these little yummies, won't you my precious? Oh, and bring the shoes :)))

darsden said...

Braja, you know I would bring only the best ones to you! I probably would bring those ugly thangs but they are so comfortable like hugs for my feet :-)

tipper said...

The cherries look YUM! I remember the shoes-I had a pair-I can remember my mom buying them at Sky City-and I thought I was something when I wore them to school. I had know idea you could still find them. Neat!

darsden said...

Hello tipper and welcome, thank you for stopping by. I love my shoes wore them again today when I went shopping for more ingrediants for new projects. Com'on back now ya hear!

Southern Bombshell said...

Dishes smishes! Who care's as long as they end up in the tummy where they belong! You are such a generous person to share with the folks. I would have grabbed them and then run off to eat them all by myself. I imagine it would have looked something like that I love Lucy in the candy factory episode.

darsden said...

Hey,Southern, I share for that reason because I would make myself sick eating them all. I love the Lucy reference that was one of my favorite episodes of hers! Thanks :-)
