Cherry Cordial Cups
Makes 12
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons water
  • ¼ cup amaretto liqueur
  • 2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  • 16 ounces white chocolate, chopped
  • 4 cups cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • ⅔ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cherry extract
  • 12 tulip-shaped chocolate cups
  • Garnish: white chocolate shavings, maraschino cherries
  1. In a medium saucepan, add ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons water, liqueur, and gelatin; whisk to combine. Bring mixture just to a boil over medium heat; remove from heat, add white chocolate, and whisk until smooth. Set aside to let cool.
  2. Using a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat cream cheese at medium-high speed until smooth, about 3 minutes. Add cream, confectioners’ sugar, and cherry extract; beat until combined. Add cooled white chocolate mixture, and beat until combined.
  3. Spoon into a pastry bag fitted with a round piping tip; pipe into chocolate cups. Garnish with white chocolate shavings and maraschino cherries, if desired.
