A Day for Chocolate Covered Cherries

Call me sentimental, but there's just something about a box of chocolate covered cherries that makes me all giddy. When I was a kid, my family had this tradition of piling in the car, with thermoses of hot cocoa and a box of chocolate covered cherries, to go out and look at all the neighborhood Christmas decorations. I recall getting one cherry at the beginning of our adventure and one near the end. Each bite was a gooey, exciting experience.

This year, while I was perusing the aisles of my local Safeway, I discovered that Queen Anne (the company we would always buy), has concocted a "Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cordial Cherry." So naturally, I had to pick up a box. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to go look at the Christmas lights, and I now have a box of 9 treats burning a hole in my pantry (it comes packaged with 10, but I had to try one right away).

Lucky for me, today is National Chocolate Covered Cherry Day. If you can find them still (according to the Queen Anne website, this product is seasonal), I would recommend going out and picking up a box. They're similar to the regular chocolate covered cherries, but with a hint of peppermint and a richer cacao taste. Suggested retail price is $1.49.

If you're looking for something different and think Queen Anne isn't exciting enough, you could always try these Vegan Chocolate Covered Cherries from Rose City Chocolates.
