Cover bowl with paper towel and microwave on high for one minute. If chocolate is still very firm, microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir chocolate with spoon until chocolate is completely melted. Dip cherries into melted chocolate by holding onto cherry stem. Place dipped cherries on cookie sheet covered with waxed paper. Let sit at room temperature until chocolate hardens. You may also refrigerate dipped cherries on tray until chocolate hardens. Cherries should be consumed within a day and stored in the refrigerator.
