As always, I made a slight modification just to make things easier: I bought tubs of the microwavable dipping chocolates that is now available in most stores to dip the cherries in.
Here is a very helpful tip: Buy the mini-muffin/cupcake/candy cups to place each cherry in after dipping. I found mine at Michael's craft store but I know they have them in grocery stores, as well.
I think it looks nice to use these when presenting them, especially if they are in a candy box.
Also, it is helpful if you dip the cherry and place it directly into the cup...because when you pick the cherry up from whatever surface, there is a spot where the chocolate doesn't cover and the juices from the filling will seep out. What happened to me the first time round with this recipe was this: I placed the dipped cherries onto wax paper to dry. Then, I moved the cherries from the wax paper into my container. The filling seeped out through the bottom part of the cherry that had touched the wax paper and there was no chocolate there. So, it helps to put them into the candy cups directly after dipping them.
Hoped this all made sense!
