I thought these little chocolate covered cherries would be great for:
a) Holiday Parties
b) Home made gifts
And you know what? I was right!
These little bites of pure sugar sweet bliss were Fan-Tas-Tick!
Loved each and every bite… and then they were gone.
Another great thing about this treat, is that you make them 2 weeks in advance of the party. They are made so far ahead of time, you don’t have to stress about them right BEFORE the event. One less thing to take care of. If only I could get my husband ready 2 weeks in advance… sigh…
I found this in my Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book
Here’s what you’ll need: (and here’s what I made)
60 maraschino cherries with stems (maybe 20 cherries with stems)
3 tablespoons butter, softened (1T butter)
3 tablespoons corn syrup (1T corn syrup)
2 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar (2/3 C powered sugar)
1 pound chocolate confectioners’ coating (Baker’s Dipping Chocolate )
Here’s what you do:
Drain cherries on a paper napkin for several hours. Flip them a few times to ensure that all the liquid has drained out.
Take the cherries out of the fridge a few hours before serving them and keep the container closed. Condensation will form on the chocolate and lead to sticky, sweaty chocolate and nobody wants that. Serve on a pretty platter with other holiday treats for guests to enjoy!
Make Ahead for a Stress Free Treat!
