Notes

This recipe is completely dairy and soy Free

I bring enough wine to cover the cherries to a boil, turn off the heat, and soak the cherries until I need them, drain and then mix them in.   This prevents them from drying out.  The alcohol cooks out, and you can't taste it at all.  Fruit juice would work, too.

Wonderful!! Great chocolate and just enough tang from the cherries.
