Demeter’s Chocolate Covered Cherries captures the smooth, silky sensuousness of this mouth-watering treat in all its glory.
In 1629 the colonists coming to America brought about two dozen different varieties of cherries with them. It was the French, however, who had the brilliance to mix the cherry with Kirsch, a colorless liqueur that originated in Germany, made from distilled juice of black cherries and crushed cherry stones, and cover the entire ensemble in chocolate. Voila! the Griotte, or chocolate covered cherry, was born.

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.
