Well,  I dont have much free time at the moment, but I was hoping I could get some help.  I am trying to find a recipe but Im not quite sure what to look for.  It is a chocolate covered cherry treat but not exactly.  You chop up a jar of maraschino cherries into small pieces, add powdered sugar (I dont know how much), mix it together and form a ball, and then cover in chocolate. They are really good. I just wish I knew the exact recipe! If anyone knows what I am talking about, or if your family has a similar recipe, please let me know! I have been looking through my cookbooks for this and I cant seem to find it!



    Try these. I don't know exactly what you are talking about...but these kind of sound like it.... :S


    1 c. (6 oz. pkg.) Hershey's semi-sweet chocolate chips
    1 c. (5 3/4 oz. pkg.) Hershey's milk chocolate chips
    2 tsp. shortening

    Melt chocolate pieces and shortening in top of double boiler over hot, not boiling, water. Stir to blend well. Remove top of double boiler form heat; cool to 78 degrees. Meanwhile prepare center.


    1/4 c. butter
    2 to 2 1/4 c. 4X sugar (confectioner's)
    1 tbsp. milk
    1/2 tsp. vanilla
    1/8 tsp. almond extract
    About 4 dozen Maraschino cherries, drained

    Thoroughly cream butter with sugar and milk. Blend in vanilla and almond extract. (If mixture is too sticky, additional sugar may be added.) Mold a small amount around a cherry, being careful to completely cover each cherry. Place on waxed paper-covered tray. Cover and chill.


    Heat cooled chocolate to 88 degrees over WARM WATER; maintain temperature while dipping. Drop centers into chocolate; roll to coat completely and remove with fork. Draw cork across rime of pan to remove excess chocolate. Drop from fork upside down onto waxed paper, swirling "thread" of chocolate from fork across top for a decorative touch. Chill 20 minutes. Store in a cool place a day or two to form cordial.

    Yield: About 4 dozen candies.

  3. ummmmmm, I have never had these... but I am so jealous! They sound delish!
