Once the sun has set and it is time for dessert, the kids are going to want to make s’mores, but what about the grown-ups? The inspiration for this treat came from chocolate covered cherries. I reversed positions of the chocolate and cherries, then covered them both with a simple cookie coating spiked with brandy. Patience will provide you with a crisp coating and a warm Brandied Cherry filled with melted chocolate. You will be just as excited for dessert as the kids!
The cherries can be made many days in advance of your outing. They will happily hang out in the fridge for many months.
