Double Chocolate Cherry Eggs

Double Chocolate Cherry Eggs
Serves 10



Kid-friendly and delicious, these eggs combine two luscious chocolates, sweet maraschino cherries and yummy toasted walnuts. For variety, try dried fruit and different types of nuts.



Ingredients:
12 ounces white chocolate chips or bars, chopped
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
7 ounces marshmallow crème
1 1/4 cups sifted powdered sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chopped maraschino cherries (drain before chopping)
1 cup chopped toasted walnuts
11 ounces milk-chocolate morsels
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening

Directions:
1. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt white chocolate and butter on LOW, stirring every 45 seconds until smooth. With a wooden spoon, stir in marshmallow crème, sugar and vanilla until well-blended.

2. Fold in cherries and walnuts. Divide into 12 equal portions and form into egg shapes. In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, melt milk chocolate and shortening on LOW, stirring every 45 seconds until smooth. Using a fork, dip white chocolate eggs in milk chocolate, turning to evenly coat. Place on wax paper to cool.

Note: Eggs can be decorated with sprinkles after dipping in milk chocolate.
