I'll give you my shipping address........


Well, I can at least tell you how...

You'll need:

1. Wilton's candy melts (chocolate or dark chocolate...I mix both together) or just baking chocolate
2. Wilton's creme mix (there's a recipe for making the liquid center)
3. Candy molds (little plastic trays with the the deepest shapes you can find)
4. Marichino cherries...(you can cut them if they are too big for the mold, but intact cherries work better...so either look for bigger molds, or smaller cherries)
5. A double boiler, or just two different sized pots, and something to hold the smaller pot up...
6. small spoon, small paint brush, butter knife

Most of the above (minus the cherries) are available in crafts stores, or large discount stores in the crafts section...

If you haven't used a double boiler, the idea is that the boiling water is in the bottom part, and the chocolate is melted in the top... You can do the same with the two pot idea (I used to use a glass measuring cup to hold up the pot inside the other)...just be sure the higher part isn't sitting directly in the water (or the bottom of the chocolate will burn...)

Mix up the liquid center (according to the directions) while the chocolate is melting.

When the chocolate is melted (consistency of thin gravy), then spoon a little into each mold (should be about 1/3 full). Then, use the brush to pull it up on the sides of the mold (make sure no light gets through the mold (as if so, then that will leak out the center!).

Put the molds in the fridge until they get hard (at this point, you'll just have the shells done).

Once hard, take out of the fridge (takes about a half hour or so for them to harden), and place the cherries and a little of the liquid center in the chocolate shells...(make sure to leave about 1/4 inch at the top for the bottom cap of chocolate).

Then, cap them with chocolate, by spooning it in. Level off the "bulge" with a butter knife (so they'll sit level on their bottoms)...put back in the fridge for another half hour.

After they are hardened, you're ready to release them from the mold. Hold the mold about 8 inches or so above a wax paper covered counter (bottom of cherries facing the counter). Drop the mold, and the chocolate cherries should pop out (may take a couple drops). Let them get to room temp, and they are ready to eat!

You'll want to store them in an airtight container at room temp. I usually use wax paper to separate the layers as I stack them in the container. Package them in little gift tins, whatever.....using doilies for liner...

Those cherries sound good.
I guess my favorite dessert would be the Cherry Chocolate Chip Pie.
This is just a regular cherry pie with chocolate chips mixed in with the cherry filling. It is best when served warm with a scoop of French Vanilla Ice Cream on it.

This:








...or "Atta laevigata", a big ant with a hefty rear end. It comes out in large swarms in the rainy season for the bridal flight --in fact, it has just started to rain (April-May)-- and is hand-picked and dropped at once into a hot pan on the spot, where it is fried in its own oil. It gives off a strong stench reminiscent of ammonia (maybe due to the formic acid) but the smoky taste is wonderful. One could compare it to some smoke-dried foodstuffs. It is extremely expensive, and every year it gets even more so because excessive "harvesting" is dwindling its numbers. Foreigners, especially the Germans, love it. It's endemic to a certain region near the border with Venezuela, in Colombia. You'll have to come down here and get it, though. Don't expect me to send any samples.

Here's a trained one plucking a guitar...
