Chocolate Covered Cherries II

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
I have made these covered cherries for years now. If they are "gooey" drop some powdered sugar on them, or coat your fingers. Flower turns to a paste, so the cherries center won't melt down as they should. As for the coating, regular candy melts are the most sturdy. Tips on chocolate, 1. rapidly chill it, it stays shiny. It will look dull if hardened at room temerature (but DON'T over chill it, it will crack!). 2. NEVER melt directly on the stove! use a double broiler or in 30 second increments in a microwave, stirring in between segments (don't use glass bowls, plastic only) 3. Avoid moisture, water or condensation at all costs! It will make your chocolate thick and clumpy, not good to use or look at! 4. Whitish or "dusty" looking chocolate is not spoiled! It simply melted and reset too slowly. Thanks for sharing a splendid recipe!
