      I was really happy with this recipe. I put my kids in an assembly line to roll the cherries. It was a lot of fun! We did a large jar of about 96 cherries and had plenty of dough for all of them in a single batch. I also doubled the shortening in the chocolate coating. Excellent!

      These were pretty good, but I guess I was expecting a liquid center like most chocolate covered cherries have. I read reviews that say they will liquify if left sitting, but it has been about a week. I keep tasting one a day and they still do not have a liquid center, but they do taste good.
