Life is just a bowl of [drunken chocolate covered] cherries!
For adults only - contains alcohol!
Rinse cherries. Do not remove stems.
Carefully slice a few shallow slits into each cherry.
Put cherries into a bowl and cover with brandy. Let soak at least four hours, preferably overnight.
Drain liquid from cherries and dry off the cherries with paper towels. Set aside.
Put chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 15 second intervals at 50% power, stirring in between, until melted (or temper chocolate in your tempering machine).
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Carefully dip each cherry, by the stem, into the chocolate. Let the excess chocolate drip off and then place on baking sheet.
Repeat with all the cherries, making sure they don't touch.
Refrigerate the cherries until the chocolate is hardened. Remove the cherries from the baking sheet to a bowl or plate.
