Chocolate Covered Cherries

  • Prep Time: 60 minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 minutes
  • Servings: 30 servings


  • 60 count maraschino cherries (with stems)
  • 2 cup sugar powdered
  • 1 pound milk chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 3 tablespoon butter


    1. Let cherries stand on paper towels for 2 hours to drain thoroughly. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside.
    2. In a medium bowl combine butter and corn syrup; stir in powdered sugar. Knead mixture until smooth (chill if mixture is too soft to handle).
    3. Shape about 1/2 teaspoon powdered sugar mixture around each cherry. Place coated cherries, stem sides up, on the prepared baking sheet. Chill for 1 to 4 hours or until firm.
    4. In a heavy saucepan melt candy coating over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Line another baking sheet with waxed paper. Holding cherries by stems, dip one at a time into coating; if necessary, spoon coating over cherries to cover completely. Let excess coating drip off. Place coated cherries, stem side up, on prepared baking sheet.
    5. Let cherries stand until the coating is set. Store tightly covered in a cool, dry place for 1 to 2 weeks before serving.
