  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Drain cherries and set on paper towels to dry.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine butter and corn syrup until smooth. Stir in confectioners' sugar and knead to form a dough. Chill to stiffen if necessary. Wrap each cherry in about 1 teaspoon of dough. Chill until firm.
  3. Melt confectioners' coating in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Dip each cherry in by its stem, and place on waxed paper lined sheets. Chill until completely set. Store in an airtight container in a cool place. Best after 1 or 2 weeks.

Very easy to make....took advice of one person who left a review and I put them directly into mini paper cups for truffles...not a good idea...the chocolate takes form of the cup...instead I wou...

These are better than store bought and suprisingly easy to make. I was worried about using to much of the sugar dough and was probably too skimpy. I'd be sure to use the full teaspoon next tim...

This is a very yummy and simple recipe. Chocolate covered cherries are my favorite candy and I am very picky about them. The only thing I will do next time is double dip the bottoms- they tend t...

Out of this world!! I can't wait to try these out on family and friends on the holidays. These are perfect just the way they are, but next time I'm going to try adding a few drops of mint flavor...

I'm guessing the 1 gallon jar of maraschino cherries with stems is about 300 to 400 cherries. I made 3 different batches with different flavours (plain, rum, almond). Each batch wrapped 50 cherr...
