Chocolate cherries

The other week I made some glacé cherries, using the same recipe that I used for the kiwifruit, and Stella cherries I pitted and froze back in January. They were gorgeous …

… but I improved them by dipping them in bittersweet chocolate (Whittakers 72%) …

… and leaving them to set:

Then I took them to pub quiz for Sophie's last night before she moves to Australia. We didn't do very well in the quiz, only fourth, but the cherries went down a treat.

I saved the syrup that was left after making the cherries to use as an ice cream topping. It's super thick and very scrummy.
