Serving Size : 36 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Candy Olgad

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine -- softened
1 Tablespoon milk
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 jars maraschino cherries with stems -- (8 ounces each)
well drained
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips -- (12 ounces)
2 Tablespoons shortening

In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, butter, milk and extract; mix well. Knead into a large
ball. Roll into 1-inch balls and flatten each into a 2-inch circle. Wrap around cherries
and lightly roll in hands. Place with stems up on waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Cover
loosely and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Melt the chocolate chips and shortening in a
double boiler or microwave-safe bowl. Holding on to stem, dip cherries into chocolate; set on waxed paper to harden. Store in a covered container. Refrigerate 1-2 weeks before serving. Yield: about 3 dozen.
Olga's note: These just get better with age.
