Cherry Cordials

One of my favorite chocolate candies :)

Makes: 2 1/2 dozen
Cooking Time: 5 min
  • 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup (stick) butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • (10 ounces) jar stemmed maraschino cherries, well drained
  • (11 ounces) package milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
  1. Line baking sheet with waxed paper.
  2. In small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, butter, and milk; mix until stiff dough forms. Shape dough evenly around each cherry and place on baking sheet. Freeze 15 minutes, or until firm.
  3. In small saucepan, melt chocolate chips and shortening over low heat until smooth. Remove coated cherries from freezer and dip each into the chocolate mixture, coating completely.
  4. Return to baking sheet and chill for 1 hour, or until chocolate is firm. Serve, or cover and chill until ready to serve.
