Yummy!! Easy to make and oh so good... Wonderful addition to my christmas cookies and good for gift giving. Thank-you and onto makeing my second batch as hubby is cleaning the first lot off :)
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!
Wonderful recipe! Next time I would use unsalted butter. I used a very rich homemade-style butter and in my batch of cherries,you can detect a bit too much salt. The cooks fault, not the recipe's..lol. I packaged these in a clear container with a row of cherries and a row of white chocolate macadamia nut truffles. Wow!!
great you should all trie it!!!
I love this recipe. I've used it often for gifts at Christmas over the years!
My sister has been making these every Christmas since she got the recipe in a Taste of Home magazine a number of years ago. I've made them once or twice also. There are a few things we've found make them even better. We have found that the cheap brand of cherries make a very dry cherry so you may not want to drain them much. If you end up with a dry filling store them on the counter for a week, which seems to help some. The longer they sit the juicier the center will be. They are always delicious, no matter if you eat them right away or let them sit.
This is a wonderful recipe! My grandmother and I made it last year for thanksgiving, just experimenting. It did not come out like the ones made professionally in the boxes, but it came out tasting just as good maybe better. I would encourage everyone to try it out!
