Only 4 Ingredients!

  • Frozen Cherries, which..side note: are delicious on their own as a sweet snack. Cherries never fully freeze into a hard mass like ice cubes…they’re more sherbet-like even when totally frozen making them an ideal snack when you want something sweet but don’t feel like digging into a pint of ice cream.
  • Vegan Vanilla Yogurt, the thicker the better!
  • Vegan Chocolate Chips, I prefer to use the semi-sweet Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips for this. They’re so delicious and easily melt down into a smooth chocolate sauce
  • Refined Coconut Oil – not a lot! Just a little bit does a long way in a creating that lovely snap that good chocolate should have when you bite into it. I recommend using refined rather than virgin though. That way it won’t impart a coconut flavor.
Make a batch as part of your weekly meal prep! It’s so nice to have this container prepped and ready to go in my freezer whenever I want something sweet after dinner or as a midday pick me up (Also pictured, my Peanut Butter Pretzel Nice Cream Sandwiches recipe)

Prep Time 15 minutes
Freeze Time 1 hour
Course Dessert, Snack
Servings 6 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 10 oz frozen cherries pre-pitted
  • 1 cup vegan vanilla yogurt see notes if using a thin yogurt*
  • 1.5 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1.5 tbsp melted coconut oil refined

Instructions
 

Prep

  • Using a toothpick or skewer, dunk one cherry into the yogurt and swirl to coat. Allow the excess to drip off and then place the cherry on a lined cookie sheet or plate.
    Repeat with the remaining cherries then freeze for 10-15 minutes set.

Melt the Chocolate

  • In the meantime, combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 10 second intervals, stirring in betwene, until melted.
    Be careful not to overheat. It's better to pull it out while the chocolate is still lumpy and stir until smooth rather than trying to get it to melt completely in the microwave.
    Tip: This can also be done on the stove using a double boiler.

Assemble

  • Allow th chocolate sauce to cool slighly then dip each yogurt-covered cherry into the chocolate. Drip off any excess, then place on the cookie sheet and freeze until firm. Minimum one 1 hour or up to overnight.
    Store leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer to enjoy whenever you're craving something sweet!

    I made these cherries tonight and they came out amazing. The vanilla yogurt is a nice addition to the standard chocolate covered fruit.

    I was not expecting these to pack such a flavor punch or to feel so decadent, but they are really wonderful and so simple to make. I used Kite Hill Vanilla yogurt and it worked well.

      I’m so glad you liked them! I love the way the cherries are tart and tangy and the vanilla yogurt is too..and then the creamy crunchy chocolate shell ties it all together. One of my favorite treats to make for sure. Glad you enjoyed it too ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š
