Did you know that Canadian Living is Style at Home's sister publication? Well, now you do! And I always love to see what amazing treats they're coming up with over there, especially during the holidays. This amazing recipe for Chocolate Cherry Cups looks like a sure holiday hit. I think you'll want to add this to your Christmas recipe repertoire! Chocolate Cherry Cups Getting the marzipan cherry filling into the centre of these delightful Chocolate Cherry Cups is surprisingly simple, but no need to tell people as they wonder at the look – and taste – of them. Ingredients •    10 oz (280 g) 70% dark chocolate, chopped •    6 oz (170 g) milk chocolate, chopped •    1 pkg (200 g) marzipan •    1/2 cup glacé cherries Garnish •    10 glacé cherries, cut in thirds Instructions 1 In heatproof bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt together half each of the dark chocolate and milk chocolate, stirring until smooth. Pour about 1 tsp into each of thirty 1 3/4 -inch (4.5 cm) wide candy cups. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. 2 Meanwhile, in food processor, pulse marzipan with cherries until smooth paste forms. Roll by fully rounded 1 tsp into balls. Gently press balls into candy cups, flattening tops almost but not all the way to edge. 3 In heatproof bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt together remaining dark and milk chocolates; pour 1 tsp over each filing to cover, smoothing top. Refrigerate for 10 minutes. Garnish: Top each chocolate with 1 cherry piece. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
