Hello and welcome to #SpoilYourselfSunday, where we celebrate simple and frugal ways to enjoy a little me-time. This #SpoilYourselfSunday is Chocolate Covered Cherries Day, so you should definitely treat yourself to our Healthy Chocolate Covered Cherries recipe! 

Healthy Chocolate Covered Cherries

(Adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie)


  • fresh cherries with stems, organic if possible
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup, agave, raw honey, or other liquid sweetener
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted


  1. Line a large plate, baking sheet, or cooling rack (that will fit in your fridge!) with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Mix liquid sweetener and melted coconut oil in a bowl, then stir in cocoa powder until you have a lovely, thin chocolatey sauce.
  3. Grab a cherry by the stem and swirl it in the chocolate sauce until coated, then place it on the parchment paper; repeat for all cherries.
  4. Place the parchment-lined plate in your fridge to set the chocolate, and keep refrigerated until just before serving to prevent the coconut oil from melting. Enjoy!

Note: If you don’t have cocoa powder and liquid sweetener, you can substitute 1/2 cup of vegan chocolate chips (or regular if that’s all you have) and melt with 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil for the chocolate covering.
