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.

I ended up having at least half of the fondant left over so I would suggest either making a half recipe of the fondant or buying 2 jars of maraschino cherries. I used Hershey's Special Dark chips and enough shortening to get the proper dipping consistency. Be sure to cover up the entire cherry in chocolate otherwise, when they sit, the cherry juice starts to seep through the uncovered area. I fixed that by doing a touch up with remelted chocolate.

These are amazing! I added some coconut to the "dough" and they turned out delicious. I took them to a party at worked and they were wiped out right away. Thanks for such an easy crowd-pleaser!

We made these for our 2010 holiday tray for family and friends, and these were a huge hit. We tripled the batch and they were loved by all. Thank you for sharing this keeper of a recipe.

These are really good. This is the third year that my cousin and I have made them together for Valentine's Day. They are a lot of work but they are really good! Thanks! :D

Very good! I'm a little slow, so this was very time consuming- but not at all difficult. Besides, everyone loves them! I ended up with waaaay more cherries than this (perhaps I was heavy-handed, or the cherries were small) and switched chocolate halfway through to dark. I must say I much prefer the dark chocolate, and I can't wait to try them soaked in rum as per Carol Ryan's suggestion. Thanks so much for posting this!
