  1. Pit each of your dates by slitting them open on one side with a knife and nudge the pit out with your finger. Make the hollow inside just a little bigger with your finger.

  2. Halve and pit your cherries.

  3. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave on low.

  4. Insert an almond into each date. Place one cherry half so that it is cupping the almond as if it were the cherry pit. Now close each date. You may need to mold it a bit with your hands to get it to close.

  5. Dip each date into the melted chocolate and place on a piece  of parchment to dry. 

  6. I like to garnish each one with half a cherry, a drizzle of the remaining chocolate and a sprinkle of sea salt.

  7. These have never lasted more than two days in my house so I can't really say how long they will last beyond that. Lol.
