Make tamales as instructed on the back of the kit using the cherries and chocolate chips as the filling. Then wrap in the husks and steam, as usual (for about 40 minutes or until masa is firm).

Whisk the sour cream, sugar and lemon. Serve tamales either warm or cold and drizzle the sour cream sauce over the top before serving.
