  • 500 g fresh or defrosted from frozen cherries, pitted
  • 4 tbsp gelatin powder
  • 100 g 85% dark chocolate


  • In a food processor or blender blend cherries until smooth. 
  • Add to a small saucepan and bring to a gentle boil. 
  • Meanwhile, place the gelatin powder into 1/4 cup cold water. Whisk until gelatin powder is dissolved and forms a gummy like consistency. 
  • Once the cherry ‘juice’ has come to a gentle boil, turn off the heat and begin to whisk through the gelatin, whisking continuously until completely dissolved. 
  • Pour gelatin mixture into moulds. Place in freezer or fridge and allow to set. If setting in the freezer, move to fridge once set. 
  • Once jellies are set, melt chocolate using a double boiler method. 
  • Prepare a whole raw beetroot or potato (wrap in foil) to create a holder for the jellies once dipped into chocolate. 
  • Remove jellies from moulds. Use a toothpick for each jelly and dip into melted chocolate to coat well. Stick into beetroot and repeat until all jellies are coated. 
  • Transfer to fridge to set. 



For a clearer jelly, strain pureed cherries through a sieve squeezing out the juices first before heating.
