Yield: 1 Servings
|4 cups||Powdered sugar|
|¼ cup||White syrup|
|1 \N||Jar maraschino cherries|
|1 pounds||Box semi-sweet baking|
|¾ teaspoon||Melted paraffin|
Cream together sugar, margarine and syrup. Cut cherries in half. Make creamed mixture into walnut sized portions. Make a thumbprint hole in each and place a cherry half inside, then work into a ball and chill. In a double boiler melt chocolate and paraffin. Dip chilled ball into chocolate.
Place on waxed paper or into tiny fluted candy cups and refrigerate.
NOTES : These are as near to purchased chocolate covered cherries that I have ever found.
