January 3 is unofficially considered National Chocolate-Covered Cherry Day in the United States.
Chocolate covered cherries are a traditional dessert confection. Variations include cherry cordial candy with liquid fillings often including cherry liqueur, as well as chocolate covered candied cherries and chocolate covered dried cherries.
Manufacturers of chocolate covered cherries include Marich Confectionery and Cella's. Chocolate covered cherries feature in the story-line of the South Park episode Simpsons Already Did It. Cherry cordial candy are also popular. Chukar Cherries in central Washington state dries 250,000 pounds of cherries and creates a much richer taste.
Tom Faglon released a recipe for dark chocolate bark where he added pomegranate seeds on the surface of dark chocolate. The taste has been described by Melissa Clark of the New York Times as sophisticated.
