DIRECTIONS

  • Drain the cherries; pat dry on paper towels, and set aside.
  • In mixer bowl beat butter, corn syrup, and salt until well combined.
  • Stir in powdered sugar and knead until smooth (mixture will be very stiff).
  • Shape 1/2 teaspoon of sugar mixture around each cherry (make sure the cherries are dry so the sugar mixture will stick).
  • Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheet and place in the freezer until cherries are firm.
  • At this point you can place them in a container or freezer bag and return to the freezer for dipping later when it's convenient.
  • Melt chocolate chips and shortening in glass heat-proof bowl, stirring often so the chocolate doesn't burn.
  • Dip each cherry in chocolate and place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet.
  • A carving fork works great for dipping the cherries.
  • Chill until firm and store in the refrigerator.
