“After Easter, I put leftover solid or hollow chocolate bunnies or eggs in a plastic bag and pound them into small pieces,” relates Geraldine B. of Kersey, Pennsylvania. “I use them in place of chocolate chips in recipes.”
The original version of this unbelievably over-the-top truffle dessert tastes like it took all day to make! But after our makeover, it can be made with just 30 minutes of hands-on work, so you can focus on other things during this busy season.
These very cute chocolately treats are especially wonderful because they hold their shape. Be sure to chop the cherries into small pieces for a smoother look. For easy cutting, dip cutter into hot water between cuts.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
