Everything in the pot except the honey. Brought to a simmer and let go for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes, put in food processor to break everything down.

10 to 15 minutes to set the Sauce, then a second dunk in the sauce. Another 10 min or so to set that layer of sauce and time to pull them.

they look good, nice step by step with pics.

Thank you!
I know it's an older trend, but there are still people who want to know how to make them so I figured I'd share!
 
Funny, but I was checking out the kitchen implement section at the store the other day (bad habit) and saw Cherry and Olive pitters and thought to myself
"who needs those?". Now I know LOL!
Cool idea and a great post!
