Ferrero Mon Cheri

Chocolate-covered cherries are a traditional dessert confection. Variations include cherry cordials with liquid fillings often including cherry liqueur,[1] as well as chocolate-covered candied cherries and chocolate-covered dried cherries.[2][3]

Manufacturers of chocolate-covered cherries include Philadelphia Candies, Marich Confectionery, and Cella's.[4] Chukar Cherries in central Washington state dries 250,000 pounds of cherries and creates a much richer taste.[5]

Tom Faglon released a recipe for dark chocolate bark where he added pomegranate seeds on the surface of dark chocolate. The taste has been described by Melissa Clark of the New York Times as sophisticated.[6]
