I made these for my Christmas gift baskets and everyone loved them! I had some extras for us as well, and we have been having a blast using them as garnish for different drinks. My favorite drink to garnish with these so far has been the Recipe #216034. Yummy! I didn't know if I was supposed to drain the cherries or not so I just left the juice. I used 3 big jars or cherries, poured them into a large bowl and used an entire bottle of Bacardi 151. Thanks Rita for another of your GREAT recipes!
I’ve been doing these cherry bombs for years. Use maraschino cherries with stems. Place in jar with rum in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight. Heat semisweet chocolate in microwave until almost melted then stir until completely melted. Remove cherries from cold rum, dry with paper towels, then dip cherries holding by the stems until completely covered with chocolate. Let set on wax paper. Great for cake decorating or as an adult chocolate treat.
