Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe was originally done on a local tv show back in the 60's. It was printed in the local paper as an anniversary edition of the show's recipes. My grandmother gave me those newspapers 30 years ago and this was the one recipe I made.. over and over. Of course, back then they didn't have small crockpots to use!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 Jar Cherries without seeds or stems
½ stick butter, room temp
1 Tbls light corn syrup
2 - 2½ cups confectioners sugar

12 oz bag of your favorite chocolate
*I use semi sweet for dipping*
1/4 block parafin wax, if using chocolate chips


Drain cherries, reserving juice. let them air dry. In a large bowl, mix butter, corn syrup, 2 Tbls cherry juice. Add sugar. Mix until it resembles play doh. (you may have to adjust the sugar) Line a jellyroll pan or cookie sheet with foil. Pinch off about 1 tsp size piece of "fondant" and wrap around the dried cherry. Repeat until all fondant and cherries are used. *you may have to use another jar of cherries depending on the size you use* Place in refrigerator to "set". Meanwhile temper your chocolate in double boiler. *I use a little crockpot, 2 serving size* Drop candy into melted chocolate, roll around to cover, remove and place on wax paper lined cookie sheet or jelly roll pan. Chill until set, about 30 minutes, repeat dipping. Chill, then place in fluted candy cups. Store in airtight container at least a week before serving so flavors can "cure".


Melt over double boiler, or in 2 serving crock pot.
