Chocolate Covered Cherries


Scroll down to see more candy recipes.


  • 1 pound confectioners' sugar
  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 bar paraffin
  • 1 package (16 oz) semisweet chocolate chips, about 2 cups
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 jars maraschino cherries
  • bourbon, optional


Drain cherries then soak in bourbon overnight or all day, if desired. Mix together the corn syrup, vanilla, confectioners' sugar, and butter until smooth. Chill.

Drain cherries. Wrap chilled fondant mixture around each. (Roll fondant piece into ball, flatten, then place cherry in center and wrap around and smooth out.) Put on buttered baking sheet and chill thoroughly.

Melt paraffin with the chocolate chips; dip fondant covered cherries in chocolate. Or, use dipping chocolate instead of chocolate chips and paraffin. Put dipped candies on buttered pan. Chill thoroughly. Keep candy in refrigerator until ready to serve.
