Double Chocolate Covered Cherries

Double Chocolate Covered Cherries created by Marie Nixon

These candies are delectable. Covered first with chocolate and than white chocolate, they are truly decadent! If you're really a chocolate fanatic (like me), try using semisweet chocolate instead of white for the second coating.

ingredients

directions

  • Drain cherries on several paper towels and press out excess moisture; allow to drain at least an hour.
  • Fondant: In a medium bowl, combine butter, corn syrup, chocolate and milk; beat until smooth.
  • Stir in confectioner's sugar (mixture will seem dry).
  • When most of the sugar is mixed in, turn out onto counter and knead until smooth.
  • Divide into 24 pieces (about 2 tsp each) and shape into balls.
  • Flatten each ball and mold around cherries, covering cherry completely (leaving stem out).
  • Refrigerate at least an hour or until very cold and very firm.
  • Line large cookie sheet with waxed paper.
  • In a small saucepan over very low heat or in the microwave, melt chips and shortening or wax until smooth.
  • Place pan or bowl over hot water to keep dipping consistency.
  • Holding stems (or use toothpicks if your cherries have no stems), dip covered cherries into melted chocolate and allow excess to drip back into pan or bowl.
  • Place on waxed papered cookie sheet to set.
  • Place in miniture muffin cups if desired and store in tightly covered container or in the refrigerator.

    My kids needed a project during summer vacation. This was one recipe I choose. It was fun and easy for them. The results were delicious. However, here in the west it was very warm and I used shortening with my chocolate. I wish I had had some paraffin on hand (it is packed away, from moving a couple of months ago and I have not got to those boxes yet) because I think the chocolate would have set up better. We kept them in the fridge and they were awesome. Thanks!

    Loved this! I made them along with other candies to pass out to neighbors and teachers. Everyone commented on how much they loved these! I used a pp idea to make them into mice w/ the addition of slivered almond ears and Hershey kiss noses. This candy will hold a permanent place on my holiday candy tray! Thanks Karen=^..^= !

    Great recipe...now add one more step. As soon as you dip in the chocolate, lay it on wax paper, with the stem horizontal but curved up (tail), push a chocolate kiss on the end of the cherry opposite the stem (head/nose), and wedge two almond slivers between the cherry and chocolate kiss (ears). Add two dots of decorator frosting to the kiss for eyes and you have the cutest little mouse you have ever seen!

    Very easy and yummy. I used cherries that I had marinated in chocolate liqueur; they were a hit. Thank you!

    WOW! Were these good! I made them for my husband for Valentine's Day. He loves chocolate covered cherries. I was amazed at how easy they were to put together. I even love them and I don't care for chocolate covered cherries. But I guess I don't like the store bought ones because these were wonderful! I did half in white choclate and the other half in semi-sweet as suggested. I don't know which I like better! Super yummy! And they turned out so pretty! But I didn't need as much chocolate to dip the cherries in - I actually needed 6 ounces instead of 12. I had 6 ounces exactly, left over. So I just poured it into candy molds (can't waste choclate)! Thank you for posting an easy, beautiful, and yummy recipe! These are worth giving as gifts!
