Chocolate Covered Cherries - Simple Style

"These Cherries are great. They are made with Marshmallow creme instead of condensed milk. They are very easy to make - especially if you've never tried to make them before! My mother in law passed the recipe on to me and they are very rich - but very good! A perfect valentines day treat."

I love to cook. I used to hate it. That was before I became a stay - home mom. I made foods for me and my husband as newlyweds and I know he choked some of it down with a smile. He still jokes to this day about when I made spaghetti and I didn't heat the sauce up. I just poured it over the hot noodles thinking they would warm the sauce - not so! Cold dinner - ick! Well I've gotten a lot better and my ultimate goal is to be the best cook in my family. I like to try new things and especially try to find recipes for foods that most people do not like. My rating system 1 star = will not eat again, will not make again. 2 stars = will not make again, but would eat it, if someone else made it for me 3 stars = Good, not the best I've ever had, but good flavor. 4 stars = Very good. I will make it again on occassion and would even recommend to others. 5 stars = Excellent. The best of it's kind that I've tasted, easy to make, others liked it too. Will make it again and will recommend to others.
