    Next day remove from fridge. I warm my chocolate syrup a bit in the microwave (be sure to vent it). Squeeze out squiggles all over the surface of the nut. Carefully spread the cool whip out smooth or you can swirl for pretty effects. (You may want the chocolate syrup on the cool whip - use your creativity!) I drain my cherries on paper towel so they will not bleed. With stems attached place sporadically all over the top! We always wanted more than 1 cherry anyway - right? Enjoy and invite those ice cream fanatics to come over for a bowl! Yummy!
