A cherry stem is not just a cherry stem.

Oh, no.

It’s a “how good are you at making-out indicator”. For those of you who haven’t the slightest clue what I am referring to, let me explain. Remove a stem from a cherry. Place said stem in your mouth and attempt to tie a knot in a stem using only your tongue. AND GO!

Don’t worry, if you were unsuccessful. My cherry knotting record: 2, cherry stems, 17. Those suckers are trickier than they look! Maybe I should have made out with my hand more. Practice makes perfect, right?

Well, thank goodness you don’t have to have magical make-out skills to eat this Mini Cherry Clafoutis with Chocolate Whipped Cream. A claftouis is a traditional baked French fruit dessert and after making this cherry version very well be my new go-to in the mornings. Not only is it easy to whip up this clafoutis, but it’s great to sub in whatever seasonal ingredients you have on hand.

Since cherries are popping up in grocery stores everywhere and bursting with color, I thought it would be the perfect addition to this dessert. Okay, and I may or may not have picked up an extra bag to practice my cherry knotting skills! Don’t judge!
