Method:

Food Processor

Ingredients

20
maraschino cherries
2 Tbsp
light rum (optional)
2 c
blanched sliced almonds
1 c
60% cocoa bittersweet chocolate chips
1 c
puffed rice cereal (like rice krispies)
1/4 c
honey
2 Tbsp
plus 2 tsp cocoa powder
4 tsp
pure vanilla extract garnish variations (pick as many as you like):1-1/2 cups nonpareils, sprinkles, crushed sliced almonds
1 c
cocoa powder

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Remove the stems and place the cherries in a bowl. Toss with the rum (if using) and let sit for 20 minutes or up to overnight; drain.
2
Place the next six ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Process until the mixture comes together, there are no large pieces of almonds, and the texture is fairly smooth. Scoop a scant tablespoon of cookie dough and form into a ball. Flatten the ball in the palm of your hand and place a cherry on the dough. Mold the dough around the cherry, covering it completely and roll into a ball. Roll the ball in garnishes. (Make ahead: store in an airtight container in a single layer in a cool, dry place for up to 3 days. Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.)

Makes 20 balls.
