Why I Love This Recipe

This has been a fun treat for Valentine's Day as well as special Birthday treats on top of ice cream.

I first found out about these one Christmas from my daughter who brought one home for me to see. Since Valentine's Day was the next holiday, I made them for the office and found that several people would not eat them, but took them home for their kids to see first. One woman wanted to put it with her collection of mice but I talked her out of it (and that's another story).

I have since made these for other people for parties.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 10oz. jar Maraschino Cherries WITH stems (approx. 24 - 27 per jar)
1 bag Hershey Kisses

chocolate chips (12 oz bag)or chocolate pieces for melting
red or white icing for eyes or candy decorations
