    Olha's Note:

    You can prepare these ahead. The candy just gets better as it is stored, with the centers becoming even juicier.

      Look no further! These are just fabulous. I didn"t use stemmed cherries so I used a toothpick to dip them. After they were set I carefully "recovered" any spot missing chocolate to keep the filling from oozing. I also did a little white chocolate drizzle on them. they were as pretty as they were sinfully delicious.Thank you for sharing!

      I made these for my BIL for the holidays, because they are his favorite candy. He thought it was the greatest gift he got! He ate one, smiled, and said this was the best tasting cherries he has ever had!
