Chocolate Covered Cherries II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
I have made these for years and have tried many different tips listed below. I even do these with friends every year we do about 350 cherries in one night. The recipe is a guide of course but haven't used it in many years First if you are doing alot get a large jar from Sams.The jar is around 10.00 and there are 150 or so cherries in the jar. I do use some cherries juice in my fondante sometimes and nead my powdered sugar in and then chill.When rolling my cherries I use powdered sugar on my hands and wax paper.I make a small ball and flaten it out in my hand and wrap my cherry.You will have to just wing that one it took me awhile to learn how to do that a few failed attempts is expected.After so many years of doing this I have gotten quite fast at doing it.Chill your cherries after they are rolled. Oh yes only drain a few cherries at a time or you will not get a juicy cherry and the center will not disolve as well. Chill the rolled cherries or put them in the freezer for a few minutes. I don't chill them as long as directed but my cholocate isn't as hot and I do it very quickly and dip them twice at one time if that makes since and put them on wax paper lined cookie sheets to dry.I will say if you can leave them in the fridge for a month they will almost be liquid in the center. These are wonderful gifts if they like chocolate covered cherries they will expect them each year.I use Dark Chocolate chips only Semi is too sweet.Hope this helps
