DIRECTIONS

  • Drain juice from cherries, set cherries aside until ready to use. To make fondant: Using a electric mixer at medium speed beat together butter, corn syrup and vanilla in a mixing bowl until smooth. Gradually add salt and 3 cups of the sugar, mixing well. When mixture becomes too stiff to beat, stir with spoon. Add 1/2 - 1 cup of sugar to make a mixture that can be kneaded. Form mixture into 10" roll. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate roll until firm.
  • Cut roll into 1" slices. Cut each slice into quarters. Flatten each piece in palm of hand; place cherry in center. Fold up fondant around cherry until it is completely covered. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Chill until firm.
  • Melt milk chocolate in the top of double boiler over hot water. Cool slightly. Holding each fondant-covered cherry by the stem, quickly dip it in the melted chocolate until the fondant is covered. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until chocolate sets. Store in air-tight container in the refrigerate. Make 40-50 cherries, depending on the size of the cherries.
