There is no reliable information about the appearance of National Chocolate Covered Cherry Day. However, what is more important is the fact that this dessert was invented, and today we can enjoy the amazing taste of chocolate-covered cherries.

It is believed that cherries were grown on the territory of modern Turkey thousands of years ago. The plant grew well in various conditions, so it quickly spread throughout the world. Berries came to America around the beginning of the 17th century.

In the 1700s in England, one could find a festive dessert, which was a cherry soaked in a cherry brand and covered with chocolate. Such a dish quickly became popular for its excellent taste (the sourness of the berry harmonized perfectly with sweet chocolate, and the overall flavor palette was supported by alcohol) and heady effect. A similar dessert was made in France. Around the same time, the dessert became known in the United States.

Today, various alcoholic drinks are used to prepare this wonderful dessert, and both classic dark and milk or white chocolate are suitable for coating.

Interesting facts

  • Closer to the second half of the 20th century in the United States, dessert began to be prepared only using sugar syrup. This option was created for those people who were against alcohol.
  • Cherries are high in vitamins A, C, E and B, as well as flavonoids (acting as antioxidants).
