How fun!  I hope the chocolate ones work out, they sound tasty!!!  My mom and I are making Mexican wedding cookies (FI looked at me weird when I said I wanted those, after explaining what they were I guess his family calls them Russian tea cakes) and his mom and making brownies for our favors.

Umm that looks AWESOME! Thanks for sharing! I’m totally hitting the farmers market and trying these puppies out! How big of a jar do you need for the 1lb?

I’m DIY-ing homemade caramel for our favour. I found a recipe for blueberry caramel the other day and I’m going to try it out for comparison since blueberries are in season right now!

Oh and I’m making my famous cherry pretzel pie for part of our dessert buffet. Sounds awful, tastes awesome. Trust me. I bribed police with it πŸ˜‰

@rabbit: Perfect! Thanks for the tips! I’ll have to dig around and see what I have hiding in the cupboards. Mmmm I’m so excited. I’m driving through Niagara (sort of Ontario’s fruitbasket on top of making fantastic wine!) on Thursday so I’ll make sure to stop and grab some fresh cherries. I’m so excited to try this out! I love maraschino cherries although I’ve never tried the “real” kind.

@effinjess: You’ve had cherry pretzel pie?! I’ve never “met” someone else who’s had it!!! AMAZING! Oh god it’s so good. I made two tonight to put in the freezer hoping we’d resist them until the wedding, and I freaking dropped one! Now we’ll have to eat it since it’s all smushed. *darn*

I made both versions of the cherries tonight. The non-alcholic ones tasted good straight away, so I’m excited to see how they taste in a couple of days! The other ones I’m marinading in cherry brandy (no maraschino liqueur up here either). Thanks again Rabbit!

Rabbit, any update on how yours turned out? I loved the non-alcoholic ones, but I haven’t ventured to taste the alcoholic ones just yet.

These sound delicious, especially the chocolate ones – rabbit, what’s the verdict???
