If you have a bag of frozen cherries and are wondering what to make out of it, look no further than this cherry ripe dessert. Cherry Ripe is actually one of Australia’s oldest chocolate bars and also one of its favourites.

  1. Blend half of the desiccated coconut with the honey, coconut oil and vanilla extract in your food processor. Place mixture in a bowl.
  2. Blend the other half of the desiccated coconut with the frozen cherries, and raspberries in your food processor. Mix both mixtures together in the food processor and blend for a few more minutes.
  3. Put baking paper in a tin (ours was a square 18cm tin) and move the mixture into the tin. Press down on the mixture on the baking paper to ensure it is firmly in place.
  4. Freeze for one hour.
  5. After one hour, cut the frozen mixture into 9 squares and place back in the freezer for at least one hour.
  6. Melt the chocolate either by melting in a microwave or over a hub using the bain-marie method (bagnomaria).
  7. Coat each cherry mixture square with melted chocolate. Freeze until ready for consumption. You can also store in the Fridge if you prefer.
